SUMMER WITH BLUE DIAMOND ALMONDS

we’ve been having a lot of fun experimenting with different color stories this summer, taking a theme and running with it and make all the props and food center around those colors. the colors are the first thing you notice in an image and i like making a little magic for people’s eyes. we’ve been working with all summer, creating content around their and we really wanted to make it feel like having a summer dinner on the italian coast. it’s no secret that i’ve been getting way more into cooking and hosting at my house. for about the past year i’ve been hosting a sunday supper where i invite about 6-8 friends to come over to my place and share a meal together. it’s a fun way to wrap up the weekend and i enjoy prepping the food and seeing everyone enjoy it together. since the heat has been unrelenting in LA these past few weeks i wanted to make the theme of this meal things that can be enjoyed with little to no heat.

and here’s what we served! i like a table that’s filled with little dishes and bowls so that everyone has something next to them and doesn’t have to keep asking for things to be passed. we put bowls of both the and flavors of the Crafted Gourmet Almonds. the Black Truffle has a really powerful flavor so it’s nice paired with simpler things like a mild cheese or a salty olive. the Pink Himalayan Salt flavor pairs well with almost anything and is nice to snack on while drinking a glass of sparkling wine (i love them paired with beer but we didn’t serve beer this time!). i like to have drinks out and ready for when guests arrived, if i’m serving wine, i make sure it’s open, so people can easily access it.

the only food that required heat was the green beans which we blanche for 3-4 minutes and the corn which we cooked for 4-5 minutes in boiling water. i like green beans served with a squeeze of lemon and a side aioli. corn, in my opinion, requires lots of butter and salt for serving. we rounded out the meal with cured meats, three different cheese, melon (which is a summer favorite!), and an assortment of crackers. we also brought out a rotisserie chicken we bought and just shredded it up. so easy!

    Love the art direction of this series! I shy away from yellow, but you’ve found a way to make it so subtle and beautiful!

    Totally agree with Eva, the AD of this series is so intriguing! Absolutely love the prop styling, & I actually tried the Rosemary & Salt Blue Diamond Flavored almonds (brought them on my recent flight to LA) they were delicious! I was a bit weary bc rosemary can be overpowering, but it was just enough, more of an accent.
