When friends gather for good food and wine, and of course the great conversations that ensue, we must pause and be grateful. This is a recent spring dinner had with friends. Each dish was simple yet screamed spring. Follow the links to the inspired recipes. Remember, to use them as inspiration and to change them up to make them your own. Happy spring to all!
Asparagus tart on puff pastry with a Dijon glaze and gruyere
Spring Salad - – peas and sautéed leeks with spinach and crisped bacon in lettuce cups – - delicious
A slice of the asparagus tart paired with stuffed mushrooms
Pollo Vesuvio – - tender chicken with fingerling potatoes and artichoke hearts – - great sauce. For the dinner party, the recipe was extended “times three.” I also incorporated peas at the end to bolster the dish
