Like Laure, our dream dinner party would have to be outdoors. It would be in the garden, not far from where the food began:

The Scene: Taking inspiration from my own wedding dinner, I'd love to dine on fresh, local ingredients in a comfortable, laid-back setting. A garden row under a full spring moon should work just fine.

The Table: A mismatched pairing of a long, old farm table with metal armchairs like these. Set with grandma's old toile, my new whites and linen tablecloths all cobbled together.

The Decor: Fresh flowers (from the garden, of course!) and more twinkle lights than you would even believe.

The People: Twelve of us, all close friends and family.

The Food: Simple, garden-fresh dishes.

Soup:
something cool and tasty like Cucumber and Yellow Pepper Soup with Crab Meat and Chives

Salad:
Meyer Lemon Spring Salad with Baby Greens, Herbs, Almonds, and Goat Cheese (with homemade goat cheese from my cousin's farm)
crusty and warm Grilled Bread with Olive Oil

Main Dishes:
Chicken and Artichoke Fricassée with Morel Mushrooms (you can bet the morels are hunted fresh from the woods)
Zucchini Rice Gratin

Dessert:
Lemon Ice Torte with Strawberry-Rhubarb Sauce
warm chocolate cake
