Book Launch Party

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:

Passed Hors d’oeuvres
Pork Belly Skewers
House made Charcuterie
Vegetables on the Fence
Shots of Corn Soup and Blue Hill V8
Tomato Burgers
Oysters and Tomatoes

Passed Small Plates
Stone Barns Chicken Wings
Marinated Cherry Tomatoes with tomato sorbet

Passed Sweets
Flourless Chocolate Cake
Cheesecake with berries
Skewered Truffles
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...


Delish! My mouth is watering, good luck and save the leftovers (if there are any)!

You absolutly HAVE to post pictures !! I'm serious ! grrrr....

Conngrats for tonight and have fun !! it's not everyday one gets to play cinderella...

I so wish I could be there! Have a great time! And post LOTS of pics!!!

I will be there at 6:01PM to wrest a shot of corn soup and a raspberry cocktail from the nearest source! Can't wait to see you!

I weep at not being able to attend. Oh, the sorrow! I can't wait to see pics. It's going to be great!

Congratulations on a magical book launch party. The menu looks great. I lift a glass of Miranda in your honor!
Have a terrific time Louisa and a wonderful weekend.
Love & Best Wishes,

Yum. Big congrats to you! Can't wait to see the pics.

Revel in your moment. It's magic and you deserve to enjoy every bit of it.

I want to try pork belly now after reading your book. Yum.
