The Great Gatsby has hit the silver screen again but we are taking it back to the pages of the original novel to show you how to throw a 1920's inspired book club gathering.
Jennie Sykes-Schwenk of Jennie Elizabeth Designs shows us how to set the scene.
Bridgett Lowery of 416 Cuisine shares some recipes inspired by the novel/movie:
Harlequin Vegetable Salad
2 to 3 Bell Peppers of various colors, cut into diamond shapes
12 to 15 White Button Mushroom Caps
12 to 15 Grape Tomatoes
4 ounces 416 Cuisine Italian Dressing
Combine vegetables in a gallon bag with dressing and marinate for 4 to 6 hours. Serve with fresh chopped herbs.
(Nick) Car(r) away Rye Sandwiches with Green Light Spreads
One loaf Cocktail Rye bread
1 pound shaved turkey breast
Make small sandwiches and prepare the spreads below so guests can customize sandwiches to their taste.
Combine one mashed avocado with 1/4C mayo
Cucumber Dill Yogurt:
6 ounce container plain Greek yogurt
3 T finely chopped cucumber, seeded and peeled
3 T fresh chopped dill
Combine all ingredients. Dip will get a bit watery if it sits over night, but stirring it will reincorporate it. You can also strain it, if desired.
Combine ¼ C 416 Cuisine pesto with ¼ C softened mascarpone cheese.
Jalapeno Cilantro Cream Cheese:
2 jalapenos, chopped with seeds and ribs removed
1C fresh cilantro
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
In food processor, combine jalapenos and cilantro
Stir into cream cheese
Citrus Glazed Daisy Cookies
12 daisy shaped sugar cookies
3/4C powdered sugar, sifted
2T lemon OR orange juice (fresh squeezed)
1/8t vanilla extract
1/2t fresh lemon OR orange zest
Combine all ingredients and whisk well until a smooth glaze has formed (it will be very thin). Pour glaze into a piping bag with a very narrow tip, or squeeze bottle, or simply drizzle with a spoon over cookies. Let glaze dry before serving. I recommend making both glazes, but if you choose to make just one, double the recipe to glaze 12 cookies. Glaze can be made up to a few days before (refrigerate) and is great on pound cake, angel food cake or scones.
