As we approach the new year, I think of all the wonderful food events I've experienced. One of the top has to be Ciao Thyme's catering of the Mount Baker Youth Symphony summer camp. This year (and it looks like, next year as well), we were able to work with Slow Food- and FLOSS- (Fresh-Local-Organic-Seasonal-Sustainable) chefs extraordinaire Jessica and Mataio of Ciao Thyme (http://www.ciaothyme.com/ -- even entering its website, much less tasting the extraordinary food, is a marvel).
The effort required extraordinary volunteer effort, good will and cheer on the part of the teachers and students, and a group ambiance of healthy experimentation with varied foods tastes. It also required Ciao Thyme's commitment to serving nourishing and delectable foods by underwriting and sponsoring the week-long gastronomy adventure. The pictures are evidence of the success of the venture. The venue? Camp Casey, Washington, in August.
