A Summer Dinner Party

What a wonderful dinner with good friends last night. As you can see we had a salad of kale and arugula with red and orange peppers and sweet onions. What you can’t see, because we devoured them, were racks of lamb and a sweet potato, carrot gratin with thyme. Oh


Pork Tomahawk Chop and the longest string bean I’ve ever seen at Bestia in LA!!! (It’s a Chinese long bean). Also pictured is a delicious Chicken Liver Crostini.



The tasting menu was divine!!


David and I enjoyed two of Mario Batali’s restaurants while in NYC, Del Posto and Esca. This photo is from Esca. I highly recommend both!

This weekend while visiting with family, my daughter Ami recounted a story about Hanukkah and her Grandma Ida’s latkes.  She remembers going to her grandparents’ house
