Take 2 friends who are excited about food and other things aesthetically pleasing,
Let them live next door to eachother for a while so that they can share ideas
about food all the time,
wait until it's summer,
and you have the right conditions to organize a fabulous Backyard Dinner!
That's how Kalika and made it happen, with the help of the talented Marnie for
the beautiful invitations & menu:
I wanted to make so many things, Kalika too, she helped me organize it all so that it would look like this:
For the roasted red veggies tartines,
Kalika made the Sourdough bread and I used her recipe.
Then I made aubergines Tatins
(aka : upside-down pie)
with puff pastry made from scratch, please.
Inspired by my Mum's melting eggplant recipe.
(it was my first time making this pastry dough and I have to say it was amazing)
then there was the dolce vita savory cheese cakes!!!
then toped with golden zucchini slices.
Then I ran out of time to take pictures of everything
but here are a few more, including the strawberry tart
made by Kalika and served with her homemade cookies.
(recipe from my Mum)
I might post recipes in details in upcoming articles,
