DINNER ANYONE?

You might have noticed that I haven't had much time (goodness, since April) to post anything on this blog.

My apologies. I get distracted.

These days I have pretty much eliminated making 'meals for the week in advance' and I am just doing dinner parties.

I like creating special menus for special meals more than anything. I also like doing classes that are also dinner parties. Most people I have come across could use some knife skills honed. Or, a special lesson in a distinct cuisine: Southwestern, Mediterranean, French, Italian, or a food that is especially liked. I recently had a client who loved beets. She wanted to do an entire meal for eight people with beets in every course. Send me an email and I'll send you the menu.

Autumn is coming and I would like to do an Apple Cider dinner party. Any takers?
