We Do Dinner!

We Do Dinner 

Hey!  Can I share some fun news!?  Sweet… thanks.

What makes dinner with friends even more fun and lovely?  A dash of holiday spirit… aaaand whiskey.  

I love the months between September and January because I get to cook and cook and cook.  Something about the holidays inspires people to gather and consume… it’s just heaven for me.  

We Do Dinner 

This holiday season I’m teaming up with my super chef friends and crackpot wine buddies to cater big ol’ homey holiday suppers for people in their homes.  You gather.  We throw down in the kitchen.  You consume.  We’re talking six course meals with things like Braised Cocoa Beef with Buckwheat and Corn Polenta Cakes and Christmas Lima Beans. Yea… the real deal.  How about Warm Apple Crostadas with Butterscotch Ice Cream and Bourbon Whipped Cream?  Yes.  Please.  Dang.  

We also do dishes.  Wait… chefs who do dishes!?  Well… we bring help.  That’s true.  

I’m telling you all of this goodness because if you’re in Los Angeles or San Francisco… well heck, maybe you’d like to throw a badass holiday dinner party.  Weeks sure are coming and going quickly so email us at joythebakerdinners (at) gmail (dot) com if you’d like to talk food… talk wine… talk menu and pricing… and talk holidays with you.

  • you have fantastic writing! you should hire yourself out to handwrite wine bar & mezze menus.

    my writing is a hideous scrawl that starts out kind of legible but ends up being linked cirles that can’t follow the lines.

  • I’ve never wished I lived in LA more than I do right now! haha

  • like everyone said, you have wonderful handwriting! One of my first memories of my husband is him telling me that I write like a boy- I guess he found that sort of thing attractive enough to marry me though. I also wish I were close enough to enjoy a holiday party catered by you and your friends! What a great idea!

  • I love your hand-writing, Joy! Your holiday party sounds like my kind of gathering. I’d love to see some of those recipes, to show off for my friends and family!

  • This is a great idea. I would definitely be interested if I lived closer.

  • Sounds amazing. I love this idea.

  • That sounds absolutely amazing! And I wish I didn’t live so far away, or I would definitely check it out because during the holidays, I cook a lot, too. And it’s always a lot of fun, especially when you are surrounded by friends and other people you like.

  • I would totally participate if I was anywhere near San Fran. That’s the goal.

    Joy, is that your handwriting on the list? I imagine that’s how you would write. A little bit of hip, yet beautiful. Fun, but sophisticated. Edgy, but soft. I hate my handwriting.

  • Are we both related? I seriously have never heard someone as enthusiastic as I about cooking and baking like mad. I love having days where I do nothing but just cook and bake- so much fun! And it lets me catch up on some reading in between baking cycles. Hehe.

    Anyway, I just wrote because I seriously love your blog and your photos! I have to admit, I am not a regular reader, just for the fact that I don’t even bother to go on my google reader or anything of the sort, I just type in sites that I always remember off the top of my head, but yesterday, I actually made a checklist on excel with links to my favorite blogs. And one box allows me to check off if I read the post; and the other box allows me to check off it I commented.

    I feel so organized… Hehe.

    Hopefully I’ll stay organized when it comes to visiting and commenting on my fav. blogs.

  • This is so cool!!! I wish I didn’t live so far!!

  • Why isn’t Texas closer to L.A. & San Fransisco! Wah!!! lol.

    Sounds divine. Feelin’ like a road trip. Can’t wait to see the recipes and lovely photos.

  • recipes please!
    nice handwriting…

  • A dinner party will nevah be refused!

  • The pomegranate-jicama salad sounds superb! I can almost imagine it…sweet, tart and crunchy. Please post the recipe for that!

  • Oh Joy,

    What a wonderful idea! Especially the part about the dishes. My kingdom for a dishwasher (person or machine)! I once again curse the fact that I am an ex-pat living in Japan and not back in my home state of CA. I will of course now be expecting recipes and mouth watering pictures to follow.
