Here are some photos from the recent “Sprout to Spoon” dinner, held at the Denver Green School, benefiting Sprout City Farms, Denver’s first nonprofit farm built on unused school property. This one-acre farm provides food for the school cafeteria, hands-on learning and volunteering opportunities, community supported agriculture for 75 families, and offers a weekly farmers market for the community. I was happy to be a part of the dinner, by providing farm-to-table mocktails for some of the courses.
Occupationally speaking, I am a sommelier and mixologist at a busy, upscale Denver restaurant. I am lucky enough to spend most days tasting, pairing, and creating, alongside my cherished guests. I am also a contributor at the Kitchn, where I write about wine and gardening, tour cooks' kitchens, and interview innovative growers and makers. When I am not wearing those shoes, you can find me in my garden, preserving, painting, designing, and documenting my experiences along the way. I'm currently learning calligraphy and trying my best at home brewing. And I am seriously obsessed with my cats. And rosé.
