"Monsoon" Mediterranean Greenheart Dinner Saturday July 19th

 Yes, monsoon season has arrived, and will provide the perfect backdrop for our Mediterranean dinner on Saturday, July 19th at La Mariposa Resort on the east side of Tucson.  We are fortunate to be able to have the beautiful Starlight Room as a setting - it's air-conditioned, of course, and has lovely vistas - so let it monsoon outside - we'll love it!

Time is now short, and we have a few remaining seats (some of our "regulars" are away on trips).  Please contact us as soon as possible; no later than Saturday, July 12th, if you'd like to attend.  

We are so proud of this menu!  This is the dinner we served in Sierra Vista in April.  (Scroll down for the photos from that evening.)  Some of those guests are driving to Tucson so that they can have the dinner again!

Yes, the dinner is all vegan plant-based, and made w/o oil or salt. Gluten-free diners may attend as only the optional "lavash" bread is made with wheat.  Ted and I will be using many of his fresh garden herbs, as always.

Fresh Gazpacho Soup

and served with lavash flat bread and Gluten-free rice crackers
Vegan Vegetable Paella
w/Sofrito & Aiolli

Dessert:  Tiramisu (raw)
Beverages: 2 kinds of Iced tea ---- Bar service also available at La Mariposa

  1. Alaine and Ted, That was such a sensational dinner in EVERY way! The food was SO delicious with all the flavors literally bursting in each bite… loved the use of Ted's herbs! (I consider myself a good cook but now I know there's much to learn about the use of many herbs.) Will these recipes be available to us anytime?

    We also loved the setting at La Mariposa. Everything was just so elegant and perfect. Thank you!!!
