Cooking for the Chef

Is there anything more lovely than someone making YOU a home cooked meal?  That’s just what my sweet friend Amy Sloan did for me as a belated birthday gift last week.  And what a treat it was!  A beautiful, sunny day in LA, we dined in her backyard- a gorgeous oasis- right under an old oak tree.   Lunch included delicious Brie and Mushroom Sandwiches along with a salad made of Fresh Peas & Pancetta.  The recipes can be found in the cookbook “Little Flower: Recipes from the Cafe” by Christine Moore, owner of Little Flower cafe in Los Angeles.

Paired with Rosé Champagne (my fave) and a bottle of water infused with a single sprig of fresh rosemary (try this immediately!) it was a perfect afternoon with one of my favorite people in the world.  And I’m obsessed with her sassy new dinnerware she scored at Pier 1 Imports!  These plates are perfect for outdoor dining and you can shop for your own set HERE.
