Dinner with Kim and Chris

We had a lovely evening last night with Slow Travel friends, Kim and Chris, who are visiting from New Jersey. Glad to share our sunny temperatures in the 80's!

It was a balmy night, so we enjoyed appetizers and prosecco by the pool during sunset, until Brad made it through traffic from Pasadena. Dinner started with pear-gorgonzola ravioli in brown butter-sage sauce and a King Estate Pinot Gris.


Next: salad with mangos, raspberries and starfruit with a passionfruit dressing.


The entree was veal saltimboca and broccolini with almonds, raisins and bacon, and a Barolo Brad has been saving. (Guess I'm really starting to think about Rome.)


Back to the patio for dessert and coffee. Limoncello blast cake!


I love my candy bees! (Yellow M&Ms, black jelly candies, almond slice wings and licorice antennae.)


We were so busy eating, drinking and talking, we forgot to take a photo of US!

What a culinary treat! I love the candy bees. How do you come up with all these ideas? Awesome.

I must say, I was waiting for people pics as well. :)

Wow! What an amazing meal and the cutest ever dessert! YOU take the cake Palma!

Too cool for school!! The food looks so tasty and the cake is adorable. I bet you had a great time with Kim and Chris!


Chris said this morning, "I think the best meal we're going to have on this trip is the meal we had at Palma's last night." Of course I knew that even before we left NJ.

Thanks Palma!!!

Palma, you always outdo yourself! Cutest cake ever....

Everything looks so yummy but I really love the cake. Easter is such a great time for decorating cakes. And your idea for the bees is excellent.
