A week ago we hosted a birthday dinner for a friend. We decided to have just hors d’oeuvres plus a special dessert, all with a French theme. Here’s the result:

(PS Forgot to take any pics of the dessert: lemon yogurt cake with home-made lavender ice cream and sparkling wine.)

The whole spread. We couldn't have done it without Choux-Choux Charcuterie (olives, jambon de Champagne and Fol Epi bread), Terra Nossa organic farm (sausages and chicken livers) and some inspiration from here.
