I designed this menu for a private dinner party created and hosted by Karen Mordechai of the esteemed Sunday Suppers (= luxurious cooking classes, beautiful food photography, custom events and dreamy recipes). Armed with some information on the aesthetic of the evening and that it would be a table full of enthusiastic foodies, I created this menu and hand wrote each one to be placed at the guests’ seats.
My inspiration came from the now-ubiquitous meat cut diagrams that oh so many restaurants have incorporated into their interiors, menus and logos. Rather than diagram the meat, I decided to diagram the meal!
Along with the menu, Karen needed a few signs and labels for the homemade tomato jam that served as a party favor. Here’s the recipe.
As always, Karen styled a beautiful table along with florals by Jessie of Rountree.
