Summer Eating

What have you been eating lately?

With the change of the season, I’ve been enjoying fava bean puree, asparagus lasagna and strawberry dumplings. Not all in one sitting of course.

I’ve been trying loads of new recipes in preperation for some al fresco dinner parties that I’m plotting in the coming months. LOVING the Chef Panisse Cafe Cookbook and all it has to offer (it went from wishlist to bookshelf in a new york minute, btw).

Which leads me to the backyard. I know it’s late in the game but I would still love to plant some tomatoes, herbs and assorted veggies for the season. Possible? We’ll find out this weekend.

(And because I know you’re wondering, these lovely pictures are from a dream dinner at Beretta in San Francisco. Heavenly food and cocktails.)
