We had over twenty guests to please.
Faces and personalities that had never met but yet had decided to come and share this special afternoon and evening, cooking and eating together with us. Sunday Suppers was just the way I had imagined it: classy, friendly, and warm.
It happened a little over a month ago in Brooklyn, in Karen’s beautiful loft.
I had decided to create a menu to follow the mood of a delightful summer evening in the city–we could not have been luckier with the weather–using seasonal ingredients like peas and strawberries. I wanted a menu filled with color and flavors— one that would leave everyone feeling light and inspired.
Being busy means that I was not able to take many pictures of attendees or the foods. I am thankful for Karen’s posts with her lovely and delicious pictures. Do not miss them.

Thank you everyone of you who came. I was honored to meet each one of you. And thank you Karen for inviting me to come–and for all of your delightful helpers!
