2012 offered an unexpectedly long hiatus from my beloved blogging, but I am ready and armed with new recipes, a new camera and a pent up need to share them! I am happy to announce too, that along with a lot of other changes, 2012 brought along new people and new traditions... including FOODIE NIGHT! So I met some friends who love food as much as I do. They are by no means veggie, but all food, prepared with love and good ingredients is a wonderful experience. It used to be four... but now it has turned into a monthly event of which upwards of 15 chef friends gather at my home and utilize my two kitchens, fire pit and grill and we cook away. So much love, fun, friends and FOOD. This just one blessing that last year brought to me, rough as it was. We make a theme, plan the event, connect with the menu and impatiently await the designated night. This is the first large group I have been able to co-host and the excitement is multi-leveled.
This Friday will be our Tapas Night! We are all making different dishes, spanning the Hispanic countries. Those guests who do not cook will be our 'mixologists' and making themed drinks! I will have pictures of the feast, our friends and the instructional posts to my dishes as usual.
I am really happy, humbled and excited to start blogging about my food passions again. I hope you will all join me again and explore new foods as I explore this new chapter in my life!
Here is an image of half the Mediterranean Feast for Four, one of our very first Foodie Nights... All vegan, all delicious! Recipes from this evening will be posted!
