We hosted dear family friends for dinner at my mom’s last weekend (here is a sneak peak of our table setting!), and had the most special evening. My mom and I had a ball preparing the different dishes (cooking in a white marble kissed kitchen as fabulous as hers is truly glorious), and the party itself was filled with great food, great people, and lots of laughter. Can you guess who inspired the menu? Barefoot Contessa of course! We replicated one of the menus from her Parties book – an amazing cookbook – and I am still dreaming about the pesto pasta and peach and raspberry crisp. Here is the complete menu in case you are hosting loved ones anytime soon. Enjoy!
