Meadow Lark Farm Dinners
Early on the morning of each dinner, the Meadow Lark Farm Dinner bus named "Bella" drives up and parks by the side of a field outside of Boulder. When the crew arrives they begin to unpack the bus - all very methodically. They prepare for one grand performance that night at a table for 44. They are like the circus - except tablecloths serve as curtains, fresh produce from the fields as the elephants, and the only sounds you hear are the chopping of vegetables, the crackling of the wood fire and the breeze.
As the day unfolds the meats are slowly smoked, the vegetables chopped, sliced, and grated. Behind the bus the compost buckets collect the scraps and that are almost as beautiful as the finished vegetables.
As the guests get close to arriving, menus are drawn on chalkboards and wine uncorked to breathe. The long table is set, wine glasses each held up to the light for a final cleaning, and plates laid out for serving.
Late in the night, after the guests have driven off, the crew has been fed, everything packed up - the whole feast becomes a memory that drives off leaving not a speck of evidence that anything ever happened.
This photograph, from my very first day with Meadow Lark set the tone of discovery and is still one of my favorites. The image looks amazing large.
