SUMMER CAMP: A POP UP DINNER

Hi! It's been a little while (four months!) since I had a pop up dinner party, but I hosted one last night and I'm still coming down from that dinner party magic high. I'd been dreaming up a summer camp-themed dinner party for a little while: think camp crafts, metal cups, and fancy s'mores. I partnered with LittlemeatsLA, a rad live work space in Los Angeles run by Robin and Johanna Chang. I was so lucky to work with the loveliest Chef Joanna Ramos, who took my vision and turned it into a menu that fit the setting perfectly.

WHAT WE ATE

course 1 // toasts with peach balsamic jam, smoked burrata, and crispy basil

course 2 // cucumber canoes with heirloom tomato gazpacho, pickled watermelon rind, and guanciale

course 3 // cassoulet with longanisa, great northern bean, and skillet cornbread

course 4 // graham cracker ice cream, ganache, burnt marshmallow fluff, brown sugar rum dirt, chocolate tuille
