A BIRTHDAY PARTY

IMG_5676I was so thrilled when Dorothy Lee asked me to cater her husband’s 37th birthday. An intimate dinner party for family, where they could relax and celebrate. There is something so wonderful about cooking for people on these memorable days, watching families enjoy each others company, eating, laughing, drinking, and catching up. I get to be a part of these moments, seeing the magic between a father and daughter, a husband and wife. For me, it really is what cooking and food is all about.
