We have scheduled our second New Orleans supper club, and this month's host is considering a garden party if the weather is nice. I started thinking about where I would draw my inspiration for the next time we host. A friend of mine who was married last week is in Paris on her honeymoon, and I have been living vicariously through her facebook updates. And I thought, what better inspiration that the amazing meals we ate in Paris!
I am thinking about starting with mini-Croque Monsiuers. That is my absolute favorite sandwich in the world. Imagine how cute they will be! I think we might have Inz Garten's lemon chicken with croutons over a bed of field greens in a mustard vinaigrette. Maybe we'll end the night with Meringues Chantilly. Also in Ina Garten's Barefoot in Paris, this dish is composed of baked meringue, raspberry sauce, whipped cream, and fresh berries. Deeeelish!
I really can't think of a better place to find inspiration...
