Summer Produce for the Home Cook

August 13, 2010

Shiraz was asked by a private client to make an afternoon spread for a warm Summer day to coincide with an outdoor Barbecue. Taking inspiration from classic Italian Antipasti and the bountiful summer produce at the Farmer’s Market, Shiraz prepared a colorful assortment of items to inspire the home cook.

Caprese Salad of freshly Mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes with a trio of salts and olive oils, a cold pesto salad with market vegetables, charcuterie served with mustard and cornichons and a tarragon scented tri-color cauliflower salad were served with a crisp Long Island Rosé and Grapefruit Margaritas with a zested salt rim.  Summer perfection!

Floral arrangements that translated from the living space…

…to the wraparound deck.
