A Movable Feast: Berkshire Grown’s Annual Harvest Supper

Lisa Green reports from Great Barrington. At Berkshire Grown’s Harvest Supper, it’s definitely helpful if you can eat and walk at the same time: you’ve got to keep moving to get a taste of all of the dishes provided by member chefs. The 19th annual food feast on Monday, Sept. 25, held again at the Ski Butternut lodge, offered a showcase for restaurants, markets and beverage purveyors who outdo themselves every year with ingredients from producers in our area. It’s an evening where chefs, farmers and enthusiastic eaters can help Berkshire Grown further its mission: to celebrate and support local food and farms.
