A whole host of our Paleo pals are in town for the annual Weston A. Price Conference, and Bill and Hayley spent all of yesterday cooking up (and photographing) a feast in our kitchen. Plus, our house is actually clean right now – an incredibly rare occurrence.
An impromptu dinner party was clearly in order. The planets don’t align all that often, folks.
After a jam-packed day of wild foraging (in local markets) and food prep, we had enough rations to feed a small horde of hungry cavepeople. So a few text messages later, our friends began showing up at our doorstep:
- Sophia Dubrovina of Sophia’s Survival Food, whose grassfed jerky chews are one of our pantry staples);
- Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites – whose awesome book, Practical Paleo, is a New York Times Bestseller for the fourth week in a row(!);
- Liz Wolfe – a.k.a. the uber-witty CaveGirl Eats. Her upcoming book, Modern Cavegirl, is sure to kick butt, so pre-order it already; and
- Badier Velji, our very own resident Whole9 Envoy who’s known in the Paleosphere as The Lazy Caveman.
I love Paleo parties – especially ones where someone else does all the cooking! (Okay, I contributed a platter of Pressure Cooker Crispy Potatoes, and Henry hauled home a bazillion bottles of kombucha for our guests, but that’s about it.)
You’ll need to whip out your jeweler’s loupe, but an eye-strainingly close examination of the snapshots in this post may offer a hint of some of the tantalizing recipes Bill and Hayley will be featuring in Gather. Not surprisingly, Hayley’s food tastes every bit as crazy-good as it looks in Bill’s photos.
This little gem, in particular, knocked all of our socks off:
After much talking (and laughing) with our mouths full, we got a sneak peek at Bill’s gorgeous photography…
…before Henry and I shooed our guests into the night. I need my beauty sleep, you know. Besides: I need to be awake for all the learning that awaits at the Weston A. Price Conference. I’ll be tweeting up a storm from the Conference, so if you’re not already following me on Twitter, what are you waiting for?
