    Although Sunday September 11 dawned windy and blustery, it was quick to morph into a picture- perfect  afternoon of warmth and sunshine. It was also a fitting background for the LDEI Boston Annual Meeting  and clambake being held at Co-President Louise Kasdon's elegant waterside-home in Cohasset. A selection of wines and amuses-bouche began the festivities thus encouraging the flow of conversation. Well-appointed tables on Louisa's spacious veranda were soon overflowing with plates piled high with steamers, corn on the cob and, of course, succulent New England lobsters. Various wines were served with the crustaceans and for dessert there was  a  bountiful selection of the best apple pies of autumn along with a number of yummy pastries and bars.

     It was indeed a fitting way to welcome in the sunny but shortened days of September and also the beginnings of a new year for the members and friends of our LDEI Boston chapter.

    On February 27, 2016, Dame Joan Sweeney again graciously hosted 16 Boston Dames at her lovely lakeside home for ice-fishing, food, and community. However, as the photo above can attest, no ice was to be found! In no way did it affect the fun, delicious food, and champagne we enjoyed that day.

    It felt like a foggy London night in the 1800s winding our way on cobblestones to Winter Place. But it was Boston 2015 on our way to a supper party at Yvonne’s at the invitation of Dame Judith Fabre McDonough. Dame Beth Berardi joined us for dinner.

    The newly, extravagantly renovated restaurant, originally Lock-Ober, was buzzing with activity; not a empty seat to be found.

    Judith presented cocktails and a four-course meal with her Mariposa wines as accompaniments.  

    • The first course consisted of Kale and Orzo Salad, Baked Oysters “Savannah”, and Charred Maitake Mushrooms. 
    • Second course:  Grilled Octopus, Broccoli Rabe, and Chicken & Quinoa Meatballs. 
    • Third course:  Crispy Tuna Fregola, Grilled Beef Matambre.
    • Fourth course:  Treats of Yo’s Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich, Drumsticks, Miniature Whoopie Pie.

    The dishes were incredibly prepared and absolutely delicious.

    Both Frank and I were duly impressed. All of this in a gorgeous setting for a mere $85. This party of eight had a wildly good time!
