Sunday Supper :: The Hunger
Styling + Photography by Karen Mordechai
Last's weeks Sunday Supper was an exclusive rendition of The Hunger :: La Cuisine Bourgeoise - taught by the very talented Camille Becerra. Camille recently created this meal for a pop-up restaurant series that received wide acclaim, and kindly agreed to come share her knowledge with our guests. The lavish 4 course meal was tres fabulous - a meal that left you both intrigued and satiated.
The menu was as follows:
Amuse Caviar, Yogurt Sphere Bread Black Sea Salt Butter House Made Ricotta cumin, red peppercorn
Second Course Crudo of Fluke hemp seed, persian lime
Entree Bluefish En Papillote salsa verde Spring Slaw sweet peas, torn cornbread, mint-cumin vinaigrette Roasted Leg of Lamb pistachio, petals
Dessert Jean Louis Cheese Citrus Marmalade Chocolate Croquembouche
For the decor, the idea was french: a little bourgeoise and a touch modern. We were lucky enough to collaborate with Sofia Crokos, uber-talented event planner and designer. We lined our tabletop with a runner made of vintage french wallpaper and called upon Emily from Chestnut in the Tuileries to create these gorgeous soft florals in mixed vessels. The stationary was designed by Christine Traulich from Red Bliss, check out the gorgeous menus in the bottom photo, they were lined with a beautiful french paper on the back (very fancy : )
We'll be posting more recipes and photos this week and next, so check back in soon !
A huge thanks to our vendors:
