Making a meal for guests has become a bit of a test lately. I recently found out I have celiac and I cannot have any gluten products. This makes making food for others a bit difficult. I have learned to cook some dishes, but while I think they are tasty- I am not always so sure of what others will think.
Our friends are used to coming over for vegan foods, but this is the first time I hosted a gluten-free vegan meal.
I think it turned out really well! I did not take any pictures since I was too busy cooking to bother with that. But here is what I made Banana Rabanada with gluten-free french bread from the Mariposa bakery. The Vegan Brunch cookbook is amazing! We also made the rosemary potatoes from the book - and sliced up fresh berries from the farmer's market. For drinks we had mimosas and bellini's. Needless to say I am still stuffed and here it is already mid-afternoon! I really recommend the Rabanada dish it's easy to make and just about the best thing I've had in a long time!
After our guests left Mario and I decided to procrastinate on the clean up and we went for a walk around the neighborhood. I wish the weather was like this everyday!
Here is what I wore to be the perfectly casual, yet put together hostess.
The dress is from Anthro- and has a print of little foxes and rabbits. Belt also Anthro Shoes old from Charlotte Ronson.
