A passion for food + fashion

Holiday Party Menu

In Food on December 4, 2010 at 2:57 pm

Okay, so the food disappeared before I could get any good shots of it last night. But here was the menu:

Tea Sammies:

Radish with Irish Butter and Sea Salt

Andrew Knowlton’s Pimento Cheese

Bacon, Momofuku Pickles, Cilantro and Hoisin


Sriracha Shrimp Cocktail


Sara Stein‘s Homemade Latkes with Applesauce


Deviled Eggs with Salmon Roe and Garden Chives


Crabbies by Lizzie


Bone-in Virginia Ham with Sweet Potato Biscuits


Crudité with Green Goddess Dip


Champagne Pomegranate Punch

And then there were the desserts that people brought—Alex’s Rum Balls, Nina’s Chocolate Crinkles (which, thank you very much, she happens to know is my favorite cookie on the planet), Claire’s Triple Chocolate Cranberry Cookies, Lesley’s Bacon Caramel Popcorn, Petits Fours and Seasonal Nougat from Valerie Confections (thank you Dana and Jessica!) and to-die for cookies from the special holiday-only Bouchon Bakery in Beverly Hills (thank you Magda and Alex!), and much more yumminess.  I made little menu cards, which I stuck into little holders I picked up at Surfas, a restaurant supply store in Culver City. The menu cards turned out to be a lifesaver, literally, since a few of the guests were allergic to shellfish and might have otherwise accidentally downed 10 crabbies that were better served on my plate! Biggest regret? I really wish I’d taken photos of the tea sammies, the surprise hit of the evening. More on those tomorrow.

  1. Those menu cards were genius, they saved my broken-down date from Death by Crab. I must get some at Surfas….
