THE ART OF ENTERTAINING: EAT WELL, LIVE SAFELY, NEW RULES

I first began "pandemic" entertaining at home in the late spring, when our gardens were just too beautiful not to share with friends and family. So I started small and kept it very simple. Just one other couple for an afternoon garden tour and some simple refreshments. After months of social isolation it was such a joy to spend time with friends. It quickly began to feel almost "normal." But there were strict rules to be followed. Guests were required to arrive wearing a mask, no hugs and no one was allowed inside the house. At the garden gate entrance was always a "welcome table" with sanitizer and wipes.

I followed a strict protocol that insured my guest's safety as well as my own. Everything was carefully choreographed. Comfortable and safely distanced seating was arranged in the garden and once people were settled in their places, the masks could come off. At first I only served dessert and coffee -  a Meyer Lemon Tart or a fresh Blueberry Galette. Then, as I became more confident that social distancing could be maintained, the menus got more ambitious, evolving into a wonderful succession small plates served Tapas style. Fried Deviled Eggs and Andalusian Style Gazpacho Soup Sips were served between tours of the garden. Then on to  Crispy Coconut Shrimp & Fresh Pineapple Soft Tacos and Crabmeat Stuffed Shishito Peppers - all served on plates garnished with herbs and flowers from the garden. 

On a chilly afternoon we gathered around a blazing antique fire cauldron sipping hot cups of Truffle & Saffron Butternut Squash Soup. A Schwartzwalder Kirsch Torte (Black Forest Cake) for a visiting German friend, Crispy Duck Taquitos with Mole Sauce, Miniature Hot Dogs on Brioche Buns with Fried Green Tomatoes, Pimento Cheese & Caramelized Bourbon Onions.  All wonderful opportunities for connecting with people and sharing really fun food.  Proof that in these challenging times we can ALL still celebrate life together. It just takes a little extra care...
