WHAT SHE'S SERVING

Oysters on the Half-Shell with Grapefruit Granita
This sparkling, vodka-laced granita has a peppery kick that sets off the briny sweetness of a good West Coast oyster.

Watercress Endive Salad with Blood Oranges and Pomegranates
MeMe Pederson often serves this bright and colorful salad with chèvre-stuffed dates.

Champagne Vinaigrette

Braised Spiced Short Ribs
These tender, rich hunks of meat pair perfectly with velvety but hot horseradish potato purée.

Horseradish Potato Purée
These smooth, creamy, innocent-looking mashed potatoes deliver an exhilarating hit of horseradish.

Pear Cranberry Crisps
When MeMe and Susana Muñoz serve these crisps as part of a catered dinner, the topping comes on the side for diners to sprinkle on.

Ginger Crème Anglaise
The spicy ginger flavor and thick, velvety texture of this sauce contrast well with the sweet-tart, crumble-topped crisp.

Glazed Pearl Onions and Baby Carrots
Pretty, easy, and excellent with meat.

Braised Lacinato Kale
So hearty it's almost meaty tasting, this is our favorite kind of kale.
