Fortified Collaborations || Heart of Summer Dinner || Happy Heart Farm, Colorado
Another home run from the folks at Fortified Collaborations. They just do a fantastic job bringing the community together to share a meal. For this dinner, we tried to get images of all the courses and take notes about the flow and pairings of the meal. Hopefully, we can tell the story of the dinner a bit better. Enjoy and bon appetite.
