You gotta” love a rotisserie chicken – look what it can do for summer! Chicken salad I – Asian inspired peanut and sesame. Chicken salad II – tortellini with scallions and peas – Chicken salad III –grape, pecan and tarragon stuffed into a yummy croissant. Alongside, a thirst quenching Lynchburg lemonade and a killer chocolate cake to finish . Satisfaction guaranteed!
Long Island iced tea, the one, the only “Rosa Mexicana” guacamole, Bloody Mary flank steak, corn chowder salad, grilled garlic bread skewers and Snicker Bar ice cream pie with a chocolate drizzle! Let the fireworks begin!
Mint julep punch, marinated Vidalia onion and parsley spread, barbecued pork sandwiches topped with crunchy slaw, a side of bacon and egg potato salad and limeade pie with pretzel crust. Can you hear that? That’s us – whistlin’ Dixie!
Le Grande Aioli! This pungent garlic mayo from the south of France is one of our favorite summer buffet spectaculars! We’re surrounding it with poached shrimp, salmon, chicken, haricot verts, tiny potatoes and anything from the market that looks good to dunk! Have a Lillet on the rocks with St. Andre cheese spread for starters and finish with warm raspberry clafouti. Definitely a show off dinner – be prepared for beaucoup praise!
A rakish herb, indeed is dill,
Seeding everywhere at will,
Careful, dill, for one so fickle
You’re apt to wind up in a pickle!
(or a devilled egg or a seafood salad or a Bloody Mary)
You go, dill!
Summertime, and the livin’ is easy! (musical notes?) Picnic in the park, head for the beach or get elegant on the patio. And don’t forget to stop over at the Seasonal Kitchen for terrific summer menus or to check out your favorite guest chefs doing their magic or to join the fun at one of our food and wine parties , including the annual end of summer “By The Sea” – 2 nights of coastal food and summer wines – and this year, bigger and better than ever!
