The Big Night

Ok... we weren't crazy enough to make a timpano, but we did think that we'd have a forking good time trying to make some gnocchi. Handmade gnocchi in August in DC...what were we thinking? It was a mini-fail but we had plenty of other delicious things for the joint birthday-bon voyage party.
Crostini two-ways: fresh fig with gorgonzola and honey, and artichoke tapenade

Wild mushroom and bechamel lasagna. This was my experiment in creating a meatless, red sauce-less lasagna.
Insalata caprese

Cantaloupe melon wrapped in prosciutto with fresh mint
Orange, olive and red onion salad
Fresh peaches with mint and onion
Setting up the table
Baked and Wired cupcakes in assorted flavors
The full table
Assorted salads, crostini and lasagna
Antipasti platters with salumi, roasted peppers, eggs and tomatoes; grapes, cheeses and olives
