tea party

Today I was fortunate to be able to tag-along with Kazumi to a tea party at Mrs. Kusakabe's home (her cooking teacher). Her home is in the mountains of Ashiya, a quiet but ritzy neighborhood.

The menu was pot-luck and boy, there was a LOT of food! Here are a couple of shots of the entree table.

And a shot of the dessert table.

This sushi topped with edible flowers was so pretty and delicious!

Mrs. Kusakabe's home is so beautiful with a lovely yard and many rose bushes. The rose fragrance wafted with the breeze.

It was a very lovely day. (Thank you Kazumi & Mrs. Kusakabe!)

Certainly looks like a ritzy neighborhood, unlike the rest of Japan. The yard almost looks like it's in Hawaii!

It was very ritzy, Okihwn. I realized how much I missed seeing grass!

Take care.

I wish I was invited to tea parties!

You could throw your own with the amount of luscious desserts you've been making recently Brilynn! :)

Take care.

The sushi topped with flowers is beautiful, and perfectly suited to a garden tea party.

That sushi was awesome Alan. It had capers and pine nuts in it also--different from the traditional sushi. It was definitely the hit of the party.

Take care.

I just found your blog via the Foodie Blogroll (which I've joined but haven't been added to yet).

Those are gorgeous pictures of the "Pot Luck" garden party.I especially love the big dish of rice decorated with flowers. What a wonderful setting; oh for such a house!
