My fourth Hostess Project article is now up at Saucy!

It was a lovely party at the Dunn Gardens in North Seattle, complete with trout rillettes, shrimp in endive and halibut cheeks in a tarragon beurre blanc:

    I want to co-host! And co-cook!

    Actually, I’ve done a few such parties where a cooking friend and I would do a meal. I also knew some folks many years ago who had a dinner club. They would get together at someone’s house once a month and everyone would bring something—which sounds like a pot luck except that whoever was playing host would organize contributions so that someone provided an appetizer, someone else a first course, and so on. Sadly I never got to join the group except as a guest a couple of times.

  2. Yum! That’s all I can say! Yum! I’ll be dreaming of the dinner tonight! :-)

    Kevin, too bad you’re not in Seattle! Actually I’m planning a virtual dinner party for the end of July. Stay tuned for details!

    P.S. Your Braciole looks AMAZING!

    Consider me tuned.

    All it takes is nine months of pondering. It really was good though.

    Thanks Shuna! We don’t get much snow here in Seattle, so that’s our equivalent; wet footprints in the grass.

    P.S. I want to try your 50/50 duck and bacon biscuits!!!
