Summertime Cooking Club

I hosted the August cooking club, and I was feeling like keeping it really simple. I just asked people to make something featuring flavors that they've been loving this summer. Since peaches are pretty much my favorite flavor EVERY summer, I started us off with some Peach and Rosemary Bourbon Cocktails. The rosemary simple syrup in this recipe is just delicious. Cheers!

Yumi made this amazing mixed greens dip, featuring so many fresh greens! Spinach, chard, arugula and beet greens! It also had mushrooms, gruyere and parm and it was delicious.

She brought bread from the new Athens Bread Company. It was amazing!!

Valerie stole the show with this Cold Avocado Corn Soup with Cilantro Oil.

Each bowl was lovely in a different way! The layers of flavor in this soup were intense. We were all in agreement that it was one of the best soups we've ever had!!

Emily made little BLT's!

Nothing says summertime like a good BLT.

I made a pasta with fresh tomatoes and Brie! YUM.

Nancy finished us off with an amazing peach and ginger pie, and Summer made super creamy mint ice cream to accompany it.

 It's been a great summer, and it was fun reliving all the delicious moments during cooking club!
