Celebration of Spring – crostini with fresh peas

Crostini with fresh pea puree then topped with pea tendrils and flowers from the garden. Drizzle with a really great olive oil and sprinkle with fleur de sel and you have the perfect spring time appetizer.  The puree was made by sauteing garlic in olive oil and then adding frozen petite peas – no need to defrost.  After a minute or two of cooking they were tossed into the food processor.  The frozen peas were just as good as the fresh, and a whole lot quicker.

Wedding at the Family Estate in the Almaden Valley

Annabel and Tylon were married at the family estate in the Almaden Valley, south of San Jose on July 15, 2017.  They wanted the wedding to be a romantic, semi formal affair, with a slight Victorian look.  The estate, with it’s tree-lined creek and large shaded lawn was the perfect place.  The bride was gorgeous in her Amelia Sposa gown and the groom was handsome in a white dinner jacket.  Even the cake looked regal.   Photography: Tony Fitzgerald Photography  |  Venue:  Hoge Residence |  Planner:  Heather Hoge  |  Catering: Gunthers Restaurant and Catering  | Cake: Bay Cakes Design  |  Floral Design: Dubon Floral Design  |  Tables, Chairs, and Linens:  Moggia Events  |  DJ: Songman Entertainment  |  Dress: Amelia Sposa
