“Panzanella” is Italian for Bread Salad
    I make this with heirloom tomatoes, asparagus, Italian black olives, big hearty croutons made with 2 types of Acme breads, fresh basil and a simple balsamic vinaigrette

    I catered a beautiful Picnic Birthday Party this weekend at Stow Lake in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park
    Like I’ve said before, one of my favorite things about catering is coming up with a menu and all the cute little creative ideas to make the party all the more special and personal.
    This party in-particular had a great menu and lots of extra little special touches.

    a few clips from the picnic:

    lemonade served in a large jar with raspberries, lemon slices and mint
    tin bucket filled with bottles of tea and San Pellegrino 
    honey-soy glazed chicken skewers
    garnished with black sesame seeds and parsley
    sweet cornmeal cake layered with fresh mango, papaya 
    and mango butter
    chopped salad (corn, avocado, feta, bell peppers…)
    forks wrapped in a napkin and tied with green and white baker’s string

     Kids lunch boxes:
    “who’s name starts with the leller l”

    Long sheets of Butcher Paper instead of tableclothes.  
    Secured to the green picninc benches with the twine

    this gives the picnic a very organic and natural feel
