My parents will be celebrating their 30th Anniversary this week, so we thought what better way to mark this major milestone than with a party?! My sisters and I have been working on this for quite a while… so I wanted to share it with you all!
Throughout the week I’ll be highlighting some of our favorite parts of the planning process – what to wear, what to serve, details not to miss! But today I wanted to focus on food and the menu… and better yet a great new company for those of you who live in the Bay Area or LA – Kitchit! The company provides private chefs that can accommodate any event type – anything from a 5 course menu for 2, to a causal family style feast for 30. Another feature I found really cool is you can split the bill online, so you can book as a group!
We were lucky enough to have Chef Anne help us out – her food is amazing, she’s super nice/professional/fun/accommodating and we definitely are looking forward to hosting another event that she can help us with! Here is her fabulous family-style menu for us (my mom is gluten-free, she created a menu that would reflect that… and make my dad happy at the same time!):
Heirloom Tomatoes, Burrata & Basil with Cornbread Croutons
Arugula Salad with Grilled Peaches, Marcona Almonds, Ricotta Salata and Shallot Vinaigrette
Tuscan Dry-Rubbed Chicken with Chimichurri
Summer Fruit Shortcakes with Whipped Creme Fraiche
Recapping the event today, my sisters and I couldn’t have been happier with the party – from great wine and food, to some memorable toasts and stories, and finishing with Fireball and a dance party, it definitely was one for the books… looking forward to the 50th anniversary party! Love you Mom and Dad!
