A Note from Feedfeed

We're all about that Miami heat! Alter, in the vibrant Wynwood neighboorhood of Miami, was the ideal location to host a Chef's Table dinner celebrating the Mother Hens of Handsome Brook Farm. The Mother Hens, Chef Janine Booth and Soraya Kilgore, served deliciously egg-centric dishes to our amazing Miami community members! Chef Janine Booth's Asparagus was served with a Hollandaise made with Handsome Brook Farm Pasture-Raised Organic eggs. It was the perfectly fresh and vibrant addition to our summer meal!
