Piano Recital Menu

My sister is a piano teacher but she used to own a tiny little vegetarian cafe with me. So when she asked me to cater her recital I was quite happy to oblige. And with children's palates in mind, I head to the Co-op and Little Italy farmers market:

Spring Hill cheeses & brie with Prager Brother's baguette, crackers, Farmer's Daughter honey, balsamic mulberry jam & Terra Bella real raw almonds

seasonal fruit from Smit Farms & JR Organics with creamsicle dip

crudités from Suzie's Farm with artichoke boursin dip & hummus

olives & pickled vegetables

pink hibiscus lemonade & citrus white iced tea

Creamsicle Fruit Dip
2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
zest of 2 oranges
1 vanilla bean

Whip the cream until you have soft peaks, then add the rest of the ingredients (split and scrape vanilla seeds into cream, then add the pod to your homemade vanilla extract) and whip to slightly stiff peaks.
