It's finally here! Tonight is the night I officially kick off my new Recipe for Love series with a launch party at Blue Hill. The party guests will be friends, family, book bloggers, food bloggers, reviewers, publishing peeps, and some assorted media. There might be video cameras. I feel just a whiff of Cinderella coming on...
Pictures will be posted in the next few days--of the food, if nothing else. Here's the menu-in-progress Blue Hill's chefs drew up, based on what's available and looking good at the farmer's markets this week:
Pork Belly Skewers
House made Charcuterie
Vegetables on the Fence
Shots of Corn Soup and Blue Hill V8
Oysters and Tomatoes
Passed Small Plates
Stone Barns Chicken Wings
Marinated Cherry Tomatoes with tomato sorbet
Flourless Chocolate Cake
Cheesecake with berries
Concord Grape Soup with yogurt sorbet
We'll also be featuring the two cocktails from Can't Stand the Heat: the "Miranda", champagne with raspberries and rose-infused vodka, and GINger Lemonade--recipes for both are in the back of the book, and I can't wait to reenact the first scene when everyone in the restaurant is tipsy on pink fizzy drinks!
And I absolutely CANNOT wait for the pork belly skewers, and to find out what makes those chicken wings all New York fancy...
