Our First Sunday Lunch at Salon No.10
Last weekend we hosted the first of our Sunday Lunch series at Salon No.10: each Sunday we work with a different chef to present a new cuisine matched with a film. Lunch is served buffet style (with some made to order dishes) and guests sit at long banquet tables to facilitate conversation and making new acquaintances. Our first journey was to the Lebabnon of the divine Ms. Maria Bizri of Pomegranate Kitchen and, despite our nervousness, was a beautiful success. The crowd was a delightful mix of old and new friends, the food delicious and plentiful and the film, Caramel, the perfect way to relax after a big meal and a couple glasses of wine.

And a wonderful photo of the first hostess at Salon No.10, the always glamorous Mai-Ling- perhaps we can look forward to some of her wonderful Northern Chinese Lunches in the not so far off future? For those of you who missed it, keep an eye out here: our next journey is with Ms. Bizri again, this time to Morocco. In December we have a wonderful Spanish menu planned and many more surprises. A word to the wise: RSVP early, with only forty seats, these lunches fill up fast! See you all soon…
