Anna’s blog, The Yellow Table, has been a favorite of mine for a long time. When she announced she’d be publishing her own cookbook, I was thrilled to see her make that dream a reality. I followed along as she documented the journey and almost a year ago now I offered to help test a few recipes for the book. Being quite the entertainer, Anna had the wonderful idea of recipe testing a small menu and throwing a dinner party to showcase the recipes. The menu I tested featured honey-dijon salmon, a brussels sprouts dish, a quinoa and butternut squash salad along with the most delicious almond cake. As you can see I’ve got a long way to go in my table settings and serving platters but the food and company was so fantastic none of us seemed to care. Based on the few dishes we tried, I highly recommend pre-ordering The Yellow Table Cookbook, which will be released in November.
