Berkshire Grown’s Mid-Summer Farm-to-Table Feast.
Jim Finnerty and Carole Murko (left with Maurice Peterson of Seven Salon) had an intimate fundraising dinner at Boulderwood, their historic Stockbridge home, to benefit Berkshire Grown, the organization that facilitates the farm-to-table movement in all sorts of ways. Murko, who is the creator and executive producer of Heirloom Meals, not only cooked the multi-course meal (with help from Christopher Blair), but also produced a small booklet of recipes for dishes such as Taft Farm Cold Corn Soup with Adobo, Leeks Vinaigrette and Whippoorwill Farm Maple Syrup Braised Shortribs. After dinner, singer-songwriter Emily Mure performed, which made the the Murko/Finnerty living room feel like a very hip coffee house.
