A Slice of Summer Pop-Up Dinner

I had the honor and joy to cook at Forthright’s kitchen once again for a pop-up dinner on August 2nd. I titled this night “A Slice of Summer” to represent some of summer’s best ingredients. Best of all – everything was gluten free!

The first course featured red beets with walnuts, goat cheese, and reduced balsamic.

It was such a fun night full of friends, cooking, laughter and joy! 10% of proceeds went to Refugee Services of Texas and the important work they’re doing to help refugees in Austin and throughout Texas. A huge thank you to all who supported me and attended this dinner!
