The pot of gold at the end of this weekend's culinary rainbow was this gorgeous celebration. Guests gathered in the garden (avoiding the showers) and partied in the kitchen (always the heart of the best parties) and were warmed up with our delicious taster portions of bowl food, an unusual alternative to a buffet.
