Berkshire Grown Throws The Ultimate Nosh-a-Thon

By 6:30 p.m., the ostensible starting time, the stable-turned-party-space at the Eastover Hotel & Resort in Lenox,  was hopping.  “They start lining up at 6,” explains Barbara Zheutlin, Executive Director of Berkshire Grown, of the hundreds of ticket buyers at this year’s sold-out Berkshire Grown Harvest Supper.  The big draw: every notable chef in the Berkshires was manning a station, where (s)he whipped up small plate after small plate of the most sublime food.  Apart from the imagination and skill that went into inventing and executing each of the 30-some show-off dishes on offer, the ingredients themselves came fresh from an equal number of local farms and dairies, all of which Bershire Grown supports and promotes.
