News Flash: Summer Arrives in LA

In Drink, Food, Media on August 16, 2010 at 10:14 am

According to an article in the Los Angeles Times this past weekend, this summer has been the coolest on record in LA since 1991, with an average July temperature of 73.5. Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous (we took Tiny G to Point Dume) and it looks like we’ll be enjoying some 80-degree days this week.

Here’s my checklist to kick off a perfect summer evening:

1 basket of figs, rinsed, sliced in half and dotted with blue cheese. Roast in 350-degree oven for 10 minutes.

2009 Chateau de Pampelonne ($17/bottle), chilled

Social Primer monogrammed cocktail napkins

Nina Simone singing “Summertime”

  1. fresh figs wrapped in proschiuto with a surprise of shaved parmesan inside.
    Fresh Figs washed and cut all by themselves, or with sliced peaaches in lemon juice for dessert. Close your eyes and you are in Italy in summer.
