Dinner Parties!

wild garlic crostini

dinner parties are great! you get to meet new people, celebrate, try out new ideas with food and... its a great chance to get 'cheffy' about your presentation.

Forage & Find just catered a lovely 5 course birthday dinner for 12, in blackrock, cork. it's a great idea for a birthday. and what could be better, really? the caterer shows up makes your food, cleans up and leaves. while you can stay home and drink until the cows come home, its a birthday come true!

here a few photos and from tonights dinner party:
