The Secret Supper
Saturday night James and I were lucky enough to attend a Secret Supper.
The event, created by my friend and food stylist extraordinaire, Tricia Martin and chef Leif Hedendal was one of the best dinners I've ever had!
The bright and airy dinning room was the perfect setting for the night. The long table covered in brown butcher paper couldn't have looked more lovely. Tricia is a genius when it comes to making things look nice and the daffodils, candles, and broken vintage plates looked beautiful on the table.
Leif created small miracles with the food-the lotus chips and pickled chard stems were a few of my favorite things and the tahini roasted cauliflower was phenomenal. I'd write more about it, but Tricia does a great job in her post here.
The most memorable part of the meal was the interesting twist of how it was presented. The starters were set gently upon the table; free for guest to grab as they mingled. Then the courses came served on two halves of mismatching vintage plates. At first, we were a little confused at why we were being served different items and why we each had so much-but then soon realized we needed to trade our plate halves in order to have the full meal. It was a great way of bringing the guests together.
I want to give a huge thank you to both Tricia and Leif for creating such a grand experience!
