FALL ENTERTAINING AND OEUFS A LA NEIGE
By Sunday Taylor, October 15, 2010
I cannot resist a cooking class called “Fall Entertaining.” And so yesterday I found myself at the beautiful Virginia Robinson Gardens in Beverly Hills. The wonderful Peggy Dark of The Kitchen for Exploring Foods in Pasadena was teaching the class. For those of us in Los Angeles and Pasadena, she is our very own Barefoot Contessa. Warm and engaging, she cooks delicious, unfussy, comfort food and is one of the most popular and successful caterers in Southern California. During the class I felt as if I was sitting with Peggy in her cozy office at The Kitchen in Pasadena, just us girls having a gabfest. Along with her fabulous recipes, she entertained us with charming stories about her business, life, travels, and food, which she is passionate about. After all, she’s been in the catering business for 30 years. Her book “Fabulous Parties” was published in 2008.
