A NEW LENS ON KATCHKIE FARM: A PHOTO JOURNAL BY PATRICIA COOK
Patricia Cook and Liz Neumark first connected years ago through the Women’s Forum, enjoying meetings and dinners together, and they shared a love of cooking during cooking classes in the pastry kitchen of Stone Barns led by Chef Adam Kaye (founder of The Spare Food Co.). Over years of sharing incredible ingredients and delicious recipes, they developed a warm friendship.
Then Covid changed the world and meeting for dinners and spending time with friends was put on hold.
But during pandemic, Pat rediscovered her camera, taking trips to sanctuaries, beaches, gardens and parks. She published her photos in a book, Finding The Light, available on her website at this link.
Then in mid-August, Liz and Pat ran into each other at Dizzy’s opening night for board members and supporters of Jazz at Lincoln Center. Great Performances operates the food and beverage services at Dizzy’s, and Liz attended to greet board members and friends while Pat attended as a guest. It was a happy reunion, and over the course of conversations, Pat asked if she could visit Katchkie Farm, our organic farm in upstate New York, to take some photos. Armed with her new Leica lenses, Pat captured the beauty of the farm and equipment and shared it with us to share with you.
