A beautiful day at Sunday Suppers

Sunday Suppers, June 24 2012

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.

The menu and recipes (click on highlighted text):

Appetizer: Verrines of Fresh Crab, Apple, and Avocado with Lime and Ginger.

Main course: Pea Risotto with Grilled Prosciutto, and Basil Oil

Dessert: Strawberry Blanc Manger en Verrines with its Strawberry Salad & Brown Butter Pistachio Financier (a recipe borrowed from my cookbook, “La Tartine Gourmande: Recipes for an Inspired Life”

With images of the beautiful table Karen prepared.
