Welcome back Zeal Optics and Blackbelly Catering with Hosea Rosenberg at Shannon Red Barn Farm. Pour some wine from around the world, thanks to Mike Joyce with Natural Wine Company and add a little Bluegrass with a whole lotta bass and you have the makings of great fall evening!
To start, butternut squash soup with pecans, apple and sage – Blackbelly Farms own homemade Andouille with grain mustard – grape pistachio and goat cheese “truffles”, to mention a few. As the sun starts to set, guests make their way to the second floor of the barn for a family style dinner. Seasonal salads – green beans and almonds – winter squash with balsamic – heirloom tomatoes with Haystack Mountain Queso de mano cheese. Entree platters of grilled organic Poussin with figs, lavender honey – Colorado Rack of Lamb with polenta, garlic and rosemary – Slow roasted Blackbelly Farm Pork with Colorado cherries.
A subtle illumination of candles, the lights dim and the band plays happy birthday for Chelsea; a great night!
