Chefs are busy folks and their crazy schedules don’t always match up with mine, so I haven’t connected with those I met last week to hear their thoughts on the production tour they took.
But I’m anxious to talk with them. When I found out our company was taking this group to my area, I was thrilled for several reasons. One being that I think this place is full of gorgeous scenery and the local hills create a picturesque view of cattle country. (Especially when they’re filled with the nice Angus cattle.) Fall just magnifies that beauty, with the warm tones and blue skies.
Unless of course the temperature dropped 25 degrees overnight, rain and snow showers threatened and the wind is howling like crazy. Then it might not just seem so picture perfect. So I wonder if they were glad to get back to their cities or if they saw through the unpleasant weather?
Today I thought I’d rewind the clock to just about a year earlier when I first visited Eagle Hills Ranch. Todd Geiken, his wife Lisa and their sons graciously drove me around their pastures to shoot some of that fall beauty.
