Taste Of The Berkshires
Foodies Unite To Help Their Neighbors
Some two dozen restaurants, caterers, bakers and wine shops donated a buffet feast for Monday night’s Mayfest benefit for Construct Inc, which provides homeless prevention and supportive housing services for people with low to moderate incomes in the Southern Berkshires. The event was sponsored by the South Council of the Berkshire Board of Realtors. Guests chatted with their favorite local chefs who had set up tasting tables outdoors under a big tent and inside the elegantly rustic Crissey Farm catering hall at Jennifer House Commons.
Klara Sotonova and Jefferson D. Diller served macaroons, hazelnut kolaches and mini hazelnut tortes from Klara’s Gourmet Cookies.
MayFest co-chairman Elaine Silberstein with historic preservation advocate Barbara Timken; Berkshire Property Agents co-founder Tim Lovett with landscape architect Shaun Grover.
Actress Annette Miller, who opens this month in The Ladies Man at Shakespeare & Company, with playwright Jodi Rothe, who wrote Martha Mitchell Calling, a play that Miller has starred in several times; Construct board member Linda Hebert with Anita Schilling.
