Post Labor Day Party Recap and Recipes

OMG was my Plugra Gourmet Club Labor Day party awesome!!  To start I have to say thanks so much to Plugra for absolutely hooking it up and supporting such an amazing event that loaded with great food and great friends.  On to the party.

While the party was nothing short of amazing, it was very difficult to pull off due to the many steps and processes in each of the recipes.  It got so hectic that on game day I called in my good friend Tommaso to help with plating and photographing the food.  Absolutely could not have done that with him.  It’s not that the recipes were really difficult to make, it’s more that each recipe had a few steps times 6 different appetizers all at once.  Not going to lie the assembly and recipe shooting is still a little blurry haha J

So here was my menu for “Small Bites Big Flavors:”


Sweetened Raspberry tea – recipe link


Blueberry Lemonade – recipe link


Fresh Fig and Burrata on toasted baguette with Vanilla Balsamic – recipe link


Slow Cooked Barbacoa Beef in Tuile Cups with Lime Sour Cream and Cilantro – recipe link


Seared Sesame Crusted Ahi on Ginger Blini with Tomato, Scallion and Umami Sauce – recipe link


Ham and Swiss Sandwich on Sweet Roll with Cornmeal Crusted Pork Belly, Balsamic Onions and Orange Marmalade – recipe link


Summer Pea Soup with Crispy Pork Confit, Crème Fraiche and Chives – recipe link


Blackberry Cobbler with Cinnamon Oat Crust and Lemon Honey Ice Cream – recipe link

I know it may be hard to pull off all of these together in one setting, but at least try 1 or 2 for your next party.  Be sure to visit to see all of the recipes from my party as well as a ton of other.
