Sunday Suppers — Summer Table

When I was in New York last week for the NYIGF and wedding field trip, I had the opportunity to attend one of the Sunday Suppers organized by Karen Mordechai and Casey Solomon — and with guest chef Aran from Cannelle et Vanille!  I had such a wonderful time, and everything was as lovely (and yummy) as I had hoped it would be:

Our theme was Summer Table — and the menu featured super-fresh summer ingredients, from a watermelon + basil + feta salad (seriously one of the most delicious dishes I've ever eaten) to pearl couscous with fresh corn to kabobs with swordfish and arctic char:

The tables were also gorgeous, with white tablecloths underneath an overlay of brown kraft paper, vintage silverware with mismatched napkins, and lush floral centerpiece arrangements in white milk glass vases:

The desserts from Aran (in lovely dessert bowls from gleena) were amazing - completely beautiful, truly delicious, and like nothing I've ever tasted before:

In addition to more fabulous photos of the table decor, the dessert recipes from Aran are now up on the Sunday Suppers blog – with dinner recipes to follow.  You should really try these recipes at home – it's sooo worth it.
