They say time flies and they are most certainly right! Itâ€™s hard to believe that itâ€™s already been almost a year since my â€œblog sisterâ€ Lis and I hosted what turned out to be a hugely successful event: La Festa al Fresco 2006!
For those of you that flew in, walked in, ran in, sailed in, beamed in from elsewhere, youâ€™ll recall that La Festa al Fresco was a resounding success with bloggers sending virtual dishes from all over the world.
For those of you that are new to the festa, La Festa al Fresco is the blog worldâ€™s biggest patio party.
The premise is very simple: prepare a dish using a fresh, seasonal ingredient, and then send it over. Oh and donâ€™t forget to bring yourself as well.
You can prepare any dish you like. It can be an appetizer; a soup; a salad; a meat, fish or vegetarian dish; a dessert or even a beverage. The only rule is that it must feature a fresh, seasonal ingredient, preferably something that grows in your neck of the woods.
Once youâ€™ve prepared your dish, please post about it on your blog and then let Lis (firstname.lastname@example.org) and myself (email@example.com) know. The deadline for the event is midnight on September 3, 2007. As we did last year, Lis and I will be splitting the round up, which we will post a few days after the deadline has passed.
So to recap, here are the particulars:
Prepare a dish of your choosing featuring a fresh, seasonal ingredient.
Post about it by midnight on September 3, 2007.
Send an e-mail to Lis and myself and include your name, blog name and blog address. Also include a link to your post and 100 x 100 pixel photo of your dish.
In Italian we say, â€œtutti a tavolaâ€ which means â€œeveryone to the tableâ€.
Lis and I are polishing the patio and tables as we speak. Tutti a tavola for La Festa al Fresco 2007!
P.S. My dear friend of Ari of the beautiful Baking and Books is overseeing an incredible event. Ari is hosting a fundraiser to benefit the 2007 Jewish Environmental Bike Ride. Buying a raffle ticket will allow you to be eligible for a number of wonderful prizes. To read all the details, please visit Ari’s blog here. Good luck to Ari with this worthy cause!
