gets comfortable

I held the dinner in the backyard of a sweet house in Culver City with my friend Rachel Day serving, and my sister Jessica Chappe shooting the photos. The tickets sold out days before the dinner, sixteen people were in attendance. The meal was inspired by mezze feasts, summer ice cream parties, and communal meals. 

Summer Squash Toast  Gjusta sourdough, caramelized onion, goat cheese, mint

Spiced Pickles  baby bell peppers, French breakfast radishes, rainbow carrots

Herb salad  mint, dill, parsley, lemon, olive oil, salt

Carrot Turmeric Farrotto sun golds, shishitos, gomasio

Coconut Fig Leaf Ice Cream

All of the above images were captured by Jessica Chappe.
