Thursday, November 5
Some people might think that it is CRAZY to host a dinner party for 20 in my rather small apartment- but I did it just last week for architect Gil Schafer (who might just be the most amazing architect that I know) who was in town giving me an excuse to host a dinner after the wonderful lecture that gave on his work last Friday. (Heather over at Habitually Chic just wrote up a great review on her blog about Gil and his work. Make sure to check it out)
It might have been the food and wine. It might have been the company. It might have been the cool weather in the air.
But I really felt like this was the "kick off" party to fall and now I feel like the holidays are just around the corner (because they REALLY ARE!)
It was also wonderful to have Barbara and Robert Sallick (founders of Waterworks) and my dear friend Jennifer Boles from The Peak of Chic (and her fabulous sister Laura who lives in San Francisco).
In case any one was wondering what was served:
Pork tenderloin with fennel and onions
Farro with pomegranate seeds, mint, Italian parsley and feta
Roasted Butternut squash with a sage butter and pecans
(I am happy to share info on how to make anything if anyone is interested)
I am not sure if I am going to be hosting any more large scale dinner parties in the near future. Sure was fun- but sure was a lot of work!
