What's for dinner?

Over the next year, I will be collaborating with Brendan McGill, chef at the highly acclaimed Hitchcock Restaurant & Deli, to bring you photographs of the regional farmers, ranchers, and purveyors that he relies on to bring his menu to life. McGill is one of the new generation of American chefs who have taken upon themselves to challenge the depersonalized factory farming that dominates dinner tables throughout America.

Hitchcock and Hitchcock Deli are located on Bainbridge Island, a short ferry ride away from Seattle. The lovely (and local) beast featured here is a Highland cattle, a breed developed in Scotland and now dispersed throughout the world.

A rotating exhibition of images will be on view at Hitchcock Deli, beginning in mid-February.   Currently, photographs of the woods, forests, and streams of Bainbridge Island are on display.
