I had the pleasure of photographing a special Farm to Table dinner held at Cohasset’s Holly Hill Farm this weekend for The Patriot Ledger’s food section. The farm is located on Jerusalem Road in the middle of prime vacation house real estate, and dinner was served in a barn built in 1785 without a single nail to be found. Chef Robin King of Restaurant Oro in Scituate prepared a 3 course meal highlighting the farm’s delicious vegetables, and a light spring rain set the mood. Amazing, to say the least.
