The first of my husband’s 50th celebrations was in California where we met and lived for 18 years. Being of that age we are on the roll of 50th birthdays and Lucy Aghadjian has catered quite a few for our Bay Area friends.
We feasted on locally grown produce – a passion for Lucy. She volunteers at her son’s school -Windrush Elementary in El Cerrito, by helping the kids sell Community Supported Agriculture boxes to the school families. Last year they raised $20,000! To read more about the program click here.
Lucy’s food is wonderful and soulful. We had a lovely outdoor family style dinner for 37 people on chilly Mill Valley night but our food kept us warm. The burrata with fresh heirlooms tomatoes (pictured in the first photo) was a divine appetizer alongside portobello mushroom fritters and mashed peas with mint (also in the photo). The Menorcan potatoes (above) were an accompaniment to grilled lamb skewers and chicken with olives and preserved lemons.
