Sardis Park Wines celebrated their grand opening yesterday, and we celebrated with them with these sweet little meringues. Vanilla bean and honey was whipped into a homemade creme fraiche, rhubarb was pureed with strawberries, blueberries & raspberries were picked up from a local stand in the morning, and mint was pick from my parents garden. Sperling Vineyards from Kelowna paired this explosive bite with their Sparkling Brut Rose.

We brought the garden inside to celebrate all that spring gives us. Rhubarb stalks grow into prehistoric giants among the seedlings, field strawberries ripen into rich, red bursts of sweet, elderflowers flourish with their heady aroma. Eager radishes push through the dirt, showing their bright pink skin and everywhere there are shoots of vibrant green.

We set out the long table on this blustery autumn evening to celebrate. We celebrated the full moon, cresting over Vedder Mountain. We celebrated the season, with rich, fall comfort food grown and harvested form the surrounding gardens, fields, and rivers. We celebrated friendships new and old, as the sparks of conversation around the table kindled warmth and joy, like the campfires that surrounded as on either side.IMG_1696
