“California Dinner.”

we had the great pleasure of hosting a truly urban, san francisco indian summer, california themed dinner for a friend who’s moving to barcelona. she cooked and we opened our doors window, to set up a long table, white lights, and candles on our very mini deck. the weather, food, and company were perfect.

the menu:
ginger pumpkin soup with spiced oven-baked hazelnuts and fried basil
arugula indian summer salad with heirloom tomatoes, nectarines, shaved gran queso cheese, crispy quinoa and lemon-garlic vinaigrette
cheese and mushroom ravioli, with bellwether farms sheep ricotta, mushrooms and parsley, topped with radish and dry creek three orchards blend olive oil
aunt margaret’s lemon sponge pie with bi-rite creamery honey lavender ice cream
