Friends, it’s that time again!
Sobremesa (n) — the time after a meal when the food is gone, but the conversation around the table continues
We had such a lovely dinner gathering earlier this summer, and we are excited to announce our next global dinner for the fall:
Join Us for a Night Under the Stars
Thursday, October 25, 2018
Joined by my lovely friend and co-host, Sarah, we invite you to a wonderful fall dinner to celebrate the season, cook together & enjoy incredible food and relish in wonderful conversation around the table with friends, new and old.
Sobremesa is a global dinner series launched earlier this year by the amazingly creative minds behind Sunday Suppers in New York. Hosts from around the world are chosen to entertain guests with seasonal dinners in an effort to gather around the table and share the simplicity and love of food.
About the Meal
from Sunday Suppers
This meal is inspired by the earth and the processes of fermentation and natural aging.
Fall is one of our favorite seasons and connects us back to the earth. As the season shifts, the color palette mutes and darkens to deep, warm hues. We turn inward, move at a slower pace and look for comfort. Spending more times indoors, we gather around the table with the ones we love. We prepare foods you want to share.
Pungent Cheese, Meat + Fruit
Bread & Black Garlic Butter
Pear, Endive, Fennel, Coriander, Smoked Ricotta
Short Rib w/Chili Oil, Garlic Chips
Braised Olives, Pickled Carrots
Plum Torte + Espresso
I am THRILLED about this menu, and I’m even more excited about the venue. This time, we are hosting the dinner at one of the few remaining historic mid-century modern homes in Charlotte. Formally the Blumenthal home built by New York architect Saul Edelbaum in the 1950’s, Sarah and her husband, Charlotte architect Ken Pursley, have lovingly restored and revitalized this home, while keeping the historic beauty in tact.
We cannot wait to gather together, to cook together and to share an incredible meal & amazing conversation. Tickets will go VERY fast, so grab yours today.
*A portion of the proceeds goes to The Global Hunger Project, a global program based on an innovative, holistic approach, which empowers women and men living in rural villages to become the agents of their own development and make sustainable progress in overcoming hunger and poverty.
