Had SO much fun last night doing a dinner party cooking lesson with some friends. The whole group decided on the menu and the hostess bought all the ingredients. The rest of us brought wine, cutting boards and knives. I talked the group through the steps to make each dish and then we shared a beautiful meal together. A prefect summer evening, this what I always hoped my 30′s would be like.
Here is the whole menu:
Nectarine, prosciutto and tomato salad with burrata cheese and mint
Grilled Steak and arugula salad with pine nuts, Parmesan and lemon vinaigrette
Fresh Spinach-Pesto Risotto
Affogato- vanilla gelato topped with hot espresso
Hope you have a chance to gather your friends and do something similar before summer slips away into a busy fall.
