My inaugural pop-up, Late Spring was even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined, largely due to the people who helped me along in the process. Before we get to these peppered balsamic strawberries, I have a few people to thank.
Lisa, I literally could not have pulled this off without you. Like very literally, you made the night so seamless and smooth. Eckert’s, and Urban Chestnut the local berries and beer were a hit. Chris, my husband who wildly supports each one of my crazy ideas. And to the guests, it was your kindness and enthusiasm and presence that made this night the one that it was. Thank you! The menu was comprised of local produce and cheese and bread and booze and beer. And, it was perfect.
