Plate the Slate Journal No. 4

Summer Lookbook

We found the perfect setting for our 2012 Summer Lookbook in Beetlebung Farm on Martha’s Vineyard. Tucked into a corner of serene and sleepy Chilmark, proprietor and chef Chris Fischer is growing organic vegetables that can be found on plates from Reynards in Brooklyn to the farm’s own nightly greenhouse dinners. We could think of no better environment – or recently harvested props – to capture our slate for summer gatherings.
