Entertaining Italian Style
Well, I'm back from New York. The highlight of the trip was hostessing a fabulous engagement party with the help of some friends. Since the groom is Italian and the bride spent some time in the country, we decided on an Italian-esque food theme, which included bruschetta, salami and prosciutto and skewers of mozzarella, basil and grape tomatoes. Dessert included chocolate-covered strawberries, mini cheesecakes and espresso granita. We paired the food with red and white wine and a variety of Italian soda, including cranberry and tangerine. The food was tasty, the atmosphere was lovely, and the guests were hopefully happy.
