Wine, Women, & Crème de la Crème
It was my pleasure to host a cooking class for this neat group of ladies! They chose my "Craving Spring" menu: Herb Roasted Chicken, Artichoke Cheese Squares, Spring Vegetable & Goat Cheese Tart, and Mason Jar Carrot Cake. So, off we went!
Everyone should have a great roasted chicken recipe for a dinner party! My version is simple and delicious. I made the artichoke cheese squares ahead of time. They taste great at room temperature -- a make ahead solution for entertaining. Next we moved on to the spring vegetable and goat cheese tart. It's fresh and lovely!
Mason jar carrot cake? Yes please! Can't have a Crème de la Crème class without dessert. That would be terrible :)
If you look closely below, you can see my homemade strawberry vodka in mason jars on the island. Grown straight from the garden!
A great night with great friends! It's a small world after all.
Don't forget the gravy! Cheers! XOXO Paula
