……was the theme for another sensational party hosted by amazing Valerie. Foodies take note of this menu!
I wish I had gotten a better picture of beautiful Valerie but honestly, I was concentrating on the lovely table she designed for her guests. From the exquisite centerpiece, to individual gifts, candles, and of course….chocolates….it was ‘Valerie Perfection’!!!
I so enjoyed sitting next to the awesome Elaine Adams and having a chance to talk. (Take note of the nutcracker….a sign of what was to come.)
Angel….yes, that’s her name….and it fits….was delightful….
Gretchen & Valerie share a moment….
O.K., group shot….notice the centerpiece was removed so Angel could get a better picture of us..… Gretchen, Valerie, Carol, yours truly and Elaine.
The peaches and Burrata were soooo delicious as were the candied walnuts….Oh, the lemon oil was a wonderful touch in the Vichyssoise which was made from cauliflower. That reminds me, if you microwave a head of cauliflower until it gets very tender and then put it in the food processor with 1/2 & 1/2, butter, salt & pepper….it comes out tasting just like mashed potatoes!!! Bet you didn’t know that!
I was the only one who had their lobster shelled…..that way I could get right to it….
I don’t know why I missed taking a picture of the sublime desert….Maybe too much lovely wine!
Thank you Valerie for another perfect evening!!!
