The Herbfarm

The weekend before my birthday, Alexi and I celebrated by having dinner at The Herbfarm. Each week, The Herbfarm Restaurant "chooses the best from farm, forest, and sea to create thematic 9-course dinners show casing the culinary glories of the Pacific Northwest." I'd been curious about this restaurant for a long time, but wasn't sure how it would be to sit for a nine course meal. It was a memorable event that I look forward to repeating; everything I had hoped for and more. Read more about The Herbfarm here.

This restaurant looks divine.
I love your shot of the chef.
I used to work at a restaurant that saved scraps for a local pig farm, but even better to have them on the premises!

I subscribe to several "foodie" magazines and have been reading with interest about these events. There is nothing like that in Anchorage but your blog post today made me feel like I enjoyed every bite with you and Alexi. xoxo
