A party at Peter's house!

Lined up on top of a marble top Louis Philippe commode are vintage linen napkins, 19th French fiddle and thread silver flatware and 18th & 19th century wedding band and cornflower Old Paris porcelain plates. 

Around this time last year, I had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of a new friend, Isabelle, introduce to me through a mutual friend Peter. Isabelle is a amazing person. She is a private chef and artist! Who doesn't love a artist that can cook well? Isabelle is half French and half American, born in Paris to A French mother, Her father is from Rhode Island. Isabelle has lived in both worlds. For the first time last year she visited Creole New Orleans and thank goodness fell into the hands of the right people. Our friend Peter decided to have a party at his Creole Antique filled French Quarter home with Chef Isabelle doing the cooking for the party, as a Isabelle and her cooking debut to New Orleans!
