Let's all agree that the famed pop up chic picnic that started in Paris over 30 years ago will be in hiatus this year, at least in the cities I have previously partaken of them. But for this French girl a classic chic French picnic need not be all in white nor need it be for you and several thousand of your closest friends. I would however love to celebrate these summer picnics with a dozen or so of my new and old friends. Won't you come join me for a surprise destination stylish picnic.
In the spirit of that white event, rendezvous will be at my home , final destination unknown (within a half mile walk, no two in exactly the same location) These are small enough that I have tables but you will be required to bring your chairs. I will provide all the food and beverages, you will help get it to the final destination. We will set up together and breakdown as if the dinner never happened., in the spirit of that famed evening so long ago.
You will be assigned the "color" of the evening upon the purchase of your seat, no two evenings will be in the same color. Though I won't require that you dress from head to toe in Lilac, or Orange, I request that your respect the spirit of the meal and participate and that the color of the evening be present upon you.
Though the picnic dinners will follow a "formula" and be similar, no two will have the same menu. There will be something for everyone with multiple selections of salads of whatever tickles my fancy from that week's farmers markets and a selection of proteins that compliment those salads best. Though primarily a French feel, you will find flavors from many European countries, some from the US and others from far off lands.
In order to observe social distancing as best as possible, depending upon the final size of the group we will be looking at tables of 4 to 6. Hand sanitizer provided.
