Saturday, September 20, 2014 On a recent Saturday in the rural Catskills, a coterie of American chefs, farmers and epicurean friends celebrated the local bounty with a foraged late-summer feast at Table On Ten, the 28 – seater restaurant in Bloomville, New York owned by Justus and Inez Valk-Kempthorne. In a today’s visceral series by husband-and-wife food and travel photographers Andrea Gentl and Martin Hyers, all the ingredients—from the chicory to flowering chocolate mint, the bee balm, duck and even the pesky “immature sunflower”—were procured from within 25 miles of the restaurant. “The dried mushrooms were from a shoeless man living in a hut in Big Indian,” says John Poiarkoff, chef of The Pines in Brooklyn, who conceived the nine-course menu, helped in the kitchen by The Pines owner and chef Camille Becerra of chic New York seafood restaurant, Navy.
