Cocktail Party at Goose Barnacle

Corner store window display by Sweets & Bitters at Goose Barnacle

Last week, Goose Barnacle hosted a cocktail party in the theme of Sweet & Bitters Volume 2: Corner Store Entertaining. With home made Goya cans and paper flowers we staged their window to resemble a New York bodega. Brooklyn Gin served the Tom Collins from Volume 2, and we gave away our version of “cracker jack” with cute food-themed Tattly tattoos as the prize. The free tickests sold out days in advance, and guests came to peruse the latest edition of Sweets & Bitters and Goose Barnacle's fine sartorial goods. Here are some pictures from Liz Clayman, in case you missed it.

This week I made two birthday cakes. For a grown-up lady: a lemon cake layered with greek yogurt icing, her favorite berries, and edible flowers. For a little girl: heart-shaped red velvet iced with pink roses and sprinkled with gold stars.

Salons with Kate Galassi

"Forager" Kate Galassi envisioned a series of monthly salons where her friends in the creative, culinary and performing arts could come together to create atmospheric themed evenings. I collaborate with her on producing and serving food and cocktails. Recently, we built a forest of hors d’oeuvres and cocktails in a TriBeCa loft for an evening of acoustic music, and hosted a candlelit Prospect Park Picnic highlighting favorite farmers’ and foodmongers’ summer best.
