A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to photograph the Heirloom Harvest Project, a joyful and delicious celebration of food made from locally harvested ingredients. This was just a fabulous event, and I hope that I can participate again next year! Here are just a handful of my favorites. I'm including a lightbox of all the pictures right here in this blog post (see below), but for those who like to tag and comment, I'm happy to share the galleries on both Google Plus and our Facebook page:
Congrats to all the chefs, farmers, masterminds, organizers, and volunteers on putting together such a special meal!!!
