Cocktails, Canapes and Cake...April 30th!

It's time to Celebrate ONE Year of Tablenosh!  Come join the 'Cocktails, Canapés and Cake' Party on April 30th.

It is hard to believe it has already been a year of my 'underground' restaurant journey...a great year of gathering people around my table to enjoy different foods (I can hardly believe I really did it!).  I am not quite sure what this year is going to bring but I have a few ideas!  I hope April 30th will re-energize me for another year another fun 'tablenosh' experience in itself.  

I seem to be on a major cake kick this year, so I thought why not bake up a few more cakes for my tablenosh one year birthday!  Everyone loves cake...right?  I am envisioning 3 cakes, one carrot cake w/cream cheese frosting, one chocolate cake w/mocha mousse filling and a citrus cake with passion fruit custard and lemon buttercream icing...yummmmmmmy!

And for all the savoury people I will feature my favorite canapés and compliment it all with a few special cocktails!  

If you want to join in the fun and food just shoot me an email and I will book you a spot!

tablenosh for friends and neighbors

So, recently I must admit I have lost a bit of momentum for tablenosh (please feel free to encourage me!).  Maybe I overdid it and am all cooked out or maybe I need to leave more space in between dinners.  I am not really sure but am trying to re-think things to get myself motivated again!

One of my recent thoughts has been to focus on dinner parties with friends and if they want to bring a neighbor a guest then that's fine but if not, no worries.  This may have come from the fact that last weekend I had to cancel tablenosh due to a horrible migraine, but had so much food that the next night I just invited a bunch of friends over to enjoy it (and a few of them were very generous and chipped in on the cost).  It ended up being really fun to sit down and enjoy what I was preparing with friends (plus I love Mexican food and that was the theme!).
My scary fish w/lime, chilli and coriander!

In regards to costs I will ask friends to chip in 5-10$ for the evening (which will still include at least 3 courses, etc.).  This way I still get to do my cooking, some of the costs get covered and I can enjoy an evening with friends.  Seeing as this is probably our last year in Australia I thought I really want to make time for our current friendships.  However, this being said I will keep the doors open for strangers and other guests as well.  So, if you are stumbling across my site and think I really want to come to a 'tablenosh dinner' then just let me know and I will make you a friend too!

At the moment I am scheduled to do a Tablenosh Celebration evening on April 30th.  This will be a cocktails and canapes style party and is open to anyone.  I just need you to email and let me know you want to come
