July 19, 2016 - Minted

Who doesn’t love a good brunch? (We certainly do)! ESPECIALLY when working for Bash Please and Minted Weddings – and presenting a tasty menu for their host of talented friends + guests.

Set within the bright, intimate walls of HNYPT, our creative director designed a petite brunch station for guests to grab bites such as chia seed yogurt parfait; gravlax bagel crisp with heirloom tomato, herbed mascarpone and caper oil, and sliced seasonal fruit with mint and orange blossom syrup.

Here’s a look at how the beautiful brunch went down!:

June 21, 2016 - Cheeky

When asked to create a healthy, summer menu for Cheeky Home‘s dinnerware launch party, our chef whipped up some delicious new items including  grilled peach, tomato and burrata tartines; grilled mission fig, fennel and arugula salad; rainbow cauliflower farro with manchego and fresh mint; and a roasted plum crostata with almond crumble and lemon thyme for dessert!

Take a look at how it all came together, within the backyard of a beautiful Venice canal house.
