Garden Style: Happy 40th Birthday!
Caroline and Ed was so trilled to come for some days on Lake Como and wanted to create a garden style party for their 25 guests. To me garden means first of all green and this meant aromatics and lemon as main decors: we used parsley, basil, mint, rosemary, thyme and chili peppers plants in pottery. We also used lemons and rattan plates to give a touch of summer and elegance. menu was green too and very italian: we started with a small welcome buffet that we called "merenda all'italiana": fresh fruit, summer watermelon, pinzimonio, italian traditional bruschetta, piadina prepared lively with Raw Ham and Squaquerone creamy cheese and rocket salad. We continued with a buffet dinner and a main course: italian Paccheri of course! For the cake a Millefeuille with chantilly cream and chocolate flakes and...cannoli for everyone! Please, just write an email if you want to be the next one to party on the shores of Como Lake :)
