To celebrate her son's graduation from the University of Vermont, Martha Stewart Living's editorial food director Lucinda Scala Quinn organized a graduation party that took inspiration from the school's beautiful surroundings. The party theme? Sustaining family through education, connection, community, and, of course, food.
These recent grads are filled with energy and optimism at a party in their honor. Lucinda's son, Calder, stands third from left.
The party menu was simple and satisfying, and most of the ingredients were from local Vermont purveyors. "I knew that I wanted to include some of the dynamic and delicious products they make," says Lucinda. "I based the menu for the party on what college kids love to eat -- burgers -- and ratcheted it up to a new level with the addition of some of Vermont's finest ingredients."
