Unplugging Traditional Dinner Parties

Tired of the same old, same old dinner parties with all their uncertainties?

In her “A Cook’s Garden” column in the Washington Post, Barbara Damrosch takes a look at the traditional dinner party and joyfully pulls the plug. She replaces it with “a spontaneous convergence, based on the appearance of a special food, usually from the garden.”

Go, Barbara! Great idea!

I think you will love her idea too. As she says, when you plan around fresh garden produce, people who accept the invitation come because they want to: “No one clears their calendar for zucchini.”

I think you’ll enjoy reading the seven paragraphs of her “Picks of the social season.” To read her article, CLICK HERE.
