Thanksgiving Memories

A few favorite images from our family feast. A custom-made turkey centerpiece, sitting between the candles, was priceless. We even has passed hors d'oeuvres, crostini with chèvre and a dollop of homemade Black Mission Fig jam. Audrey set the table, with her crafty place cards, for all 14 guests. Funny though, none of the adults…

Happy Birthday, Julia

Thank you for your inspiring no-fuss approach to delicious meals. It's a warm evening so I'm keeping it simple with grilled duck pork sausages accompanied by a modest platter of marinated chèvre, heirloom tomatoes, black mission figs, and pain de epi. And, of course, we'll have some bubbly... a toast to you!

Lunch at River Cafe

Dining al fresco with my family, enjoying prosciutto with Turkish figs and a glorious 70 degree afternoon. The River Café, London. What could be better?
