This last week had been a mad, crazy blur of late nights and eating out, running the gamut from Morimoto to iHop. So I thought that Saturday night should be my turn back in the kitchen as a way of thanking all my friends who'd made the week (okay the last 11 days) so special for me.
I decided that the best way to have some fun was to make a whole bunch of street-food style snacks. There were samosas,
Chateau Montelena 1974 Cabernet. Read about it here.
Thanks to our friend Leighton who's actually in the wine business, it was carefully opened...

Patsy's go-to spot at parties is under the dining room table, just in case of course.)
It wouldn't be a party without presents.

Finally the cake came out. And what a cake. We always serve Princess cakes from the best bakery in Sonoma, Scandia! Alan consulted with the owner Marcella. He wanted an Indian themed cake. He'd shown her some sari fabric and she suggested a henna design for the cake, which is what she did. She's great. She even called the house on Friday night to tell us what a great time she was having with the project. She totally kicked ass with the cake!
In the next few days I'm going to be sharing the recipes and how to's of what I served. With the exception of the momo, all the dishes were vegetarian. Follow along on Twitter @kathygori
