dinner @Tate's / July 2012

The July dinner@Tate's was fantastic!

Perfect mix of people and chatter and wine and the food wasn't so bad (I cooked) finished the evening with a little shrinky dinks! Hilarious!

Here are some photos.
(btw - I am still just using the phone for a camera so please bear with me)

The evening started with fried squash blossoms stuffed with goat cheese and dill and a little black sea salt from Kauai. 
While at the farmer's market that morning I also found endive. So I served those up with some fresh peaches and crumbled gorgonzola and candied pecans.

Next up was this bacon wrapped pork loin served with a fresh plum chutney. WOW!

Sides started with blanched green beans and radishes garnished with proscuitto and pepper.

Smashed potatoes with butter and sour cream. 
(not sure where my photo went)

And Panzanella.

After all that other craziness I also served stone fruit poached in Rose wine and homemade cinnamon vanilla ice-cream - served with butter cookies covered in chocolate ganache and toasted almonds. Not sure where those photos went either but here's an older photo from the last time I made the fruit and cookie items.

And then someone said "I want to make shrinky dinks!"
So we did.
Here are the few that were not immediately scooped up and taken home with guests.

That Spider-Man one is ridiculous! 

Great fun.
Fantastic people!
Great food.
Even better Wine!

Can't wait to do it again.
