They say time flies and they are most certainly right! It’s hard to believe that it’s already been almost a year since my “blog sister” 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, you’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 world’s biggest patio party.

The premise is very simple: prepare a dish using a fresh, seasonal ingredient, and then send it over. Oh and don’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 you’ve prepared your dish, please post about it on your blog and then let Lis (lamiacucina67@gmail.com) and myself (creampuffsinvenice@gmail.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, “tutti a tavola” which means “everyone to the table”.

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!
