Martha Stewart Living Visits THE LITTLE NELL and a Preview of What's to Come

Mfa was in Aspen and Crawford, Colorado last week for a photo shoot with a crew from MARTHA STEWART LIVING. What started as a pitch more than two years ago about The Little Nell’s Executive Chef Ryan Hardy, has developed into what promises to be a full-length feature story about the chef entertaining at his farm, and exactly how the farm comes to the table at The Little Nell. From picking wild flowers to arranging table settings to fishing in the Gunnison, the team kept a careful eye on the details of the story, due out in the magazine’s July 2010 issue.

Here’s just a snapshot of some of the week’s work (and play), and unparalleled beauty of both the hotel and the farm.
