We at Culinary Crafts were so thrilled to cater the KUER book party for the fantastic How to Eat Weekends by Lynne Rossetto Kasper and Sally Swift! Lynne Rossetto Kasper (host of The Splendid Table) was in attendance and signing copies of this fabulous book as well as joined in a Q & A panel with esteemed local food critics, all making for a seriously stellar event. Held on Cinco de Mayo, the Mexican Comida meal was created by Culinary Crafts with inspiration and recipes straight from the pages of How to Eat Weekends, of course! We served Beehive Cheese Co.’s fresh cheeses with tomatillo salsa, mango and jicama sticks with chile and lime (CAUTION! These were HOT!), yucatan pork in banana leaves, black beans and rice, house made corn tortillas, and chile-spiked Mexican wedding cookies (these were the crowd favorite). Take a look!
It was amazing to meet Lynne and be a part of this event! This cookbook is a great addition to any home cook or foodie’s collection and we at Culinary Crafts were so honored to be able to work with Lynne and KUER to create these very special dishes for this AMAZING party! Happy cooking everyone!
