Farm Dinner with Salted Table and Bloomsbury Farm
Chef Charles Hunter III takes advantage of the fresh seasonal harvest for a beautiful pop-up dinner.
Chef Charles Hunter III moves cat-like through the kitchen as he purees sweet potatoes and honey, then checks his caramelized onions. He’s in the kitchen of Lauren Palmer, owner/farmer of Bloomsbury Farms, preparing for his farm dinner which will commence in four short hours. Friends and strangers gather under the lovely pavilion to be united by food, lovingly grown not 300 yards from where they’re eating. The dinner is to celebrate the seasons—the harvest it brings and the farmers that grow it. Before each course, Hunter croons about the dish, from who grew the produce to just how he prepared it. It’s hard to say which is better, the atmosphere or the food. Either way, both quickly turn strangers into friends.
Chef Hunter runs The Salted Table, a small catering company specializing in in-home parties. If you’re lucky enough to get a seat at one of his pop-up farm diners, snag it.
