There is something about a round table. It provides an intimate setting, and the beauty of a round table is that it encourages one conversation. I enjoy hosting small gatherings and surprising guests with a beautifully set table and a wonderfully elegant menu. Try this amazing asparagus soup, a perfect starter for a spring celebration. Serve the main-course scallops with a crisp, lightly dressed salad or warmed spinach. For dessert, wow your family and friends with our meringue roulade topped with rose petals and fresh raspberries.
Your guests will feel incredibly special, whether you choose to host a simple, elegant lunch or go all out with dinner!
Asparagus Soup with Lemon and Parmesan
This Asparagus Soup with Lemon and Parmesan tastes luxurious, yet is made without cream—just veggies, broth, and a hint of Parmesan puréed to silky perfection.
Butter-Basted Scallops with Sugar Snaps
These Butter-Basted Scallops are delightful. Pair them with a crisp, mixed green salad using sugar snap peas and a fresh lemon vinaigrette, for a delicious main-course.
Meringue Roulade with Rose Petals and Fresh Raspberries
This Meringue Roulade with Rose Petals and Fresh Raspberries is an elegant springtime dessert that will wow your family and friends.
A very special thanks to Elizabeth Bruns, Inc. for providing the beautiful table settings. And to Jenny Joyner for sharing her lovely home with us.
