Sustainable Dish Paleo Farm Dinner – AHS 2012

Last weekend we had the great pleasure of attending the Sustainable Dish farm dinner at Diana Rodger’s farm in Carlisle MA. This dinner took place on the second night of the Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS), and was just a short drive north west of Boston. The day was sadly quite rainy, which meant that tours of Clark Farm were not going to happen. We ducked out of the book signing at AHS when things slowed down and headed out to Diana’s farm with Diane Sanfilippo. When we arrived, cocktail hour was well underway and it was clear we had some catching up to do! So with a glass of wine in one hand and a camera in the other – we mingled our way through the barn. Many of our favorite bloggers and authors were in attendance: Robb Wolf, Nom Nom Paleo & hubby Fitbomb, Diane Sanfilippo, Chris Kresser, Mat Lalonde, Daniel Pardi, Jimmy Moore,  Stacy Toth & Matthew McCarry, Sean Coonce, Stephani Ruper, Badier Velji, Cindy & Dustin Sexton, John Welbourne, Julie Mayfield, and I’m sure there are a whole bunch more we’ve missed. The food, which was prepared by Chive Catering was outstanding, and met wide approval from the notoriously picky paleo crowd of guests. Each plate was perfection, fit for a glamour shot that could be posted on any blog (and good thing, with the number of bloggers in the barn!)

It’s already been passed around a bit since we loaded it to YouTube yesterday, but in case you haven’t seen it yet – here is the video we made during the dinner. Sure, it means we weren’t able to sit and chat with our friends quite as much – but we thought the evening was quite special, and wanted to have something to share with you guys!


And here are some photos we took during the dinner as well:

      Great pictures. Wonderful video. It’s really nice to get a view into the evening for those of us unable to attend. I’m struck not only by the rustic charm of the setting and the amazing dinner menu but by the beauty of the people. Not a hollywood, fake type of glamour but a healthy glow that radiates. Thanks for posting this.

      What a fantastic event! It’s hard to pick a favorite moment from your video but the goats were adorable and seeing the behind the scenes prep and the chalk board photo booth are stand-outs! It is really beautifully shot and edited!
