Green Beans with Shallots and Almonds

The first ingredient of a great summer party is people! That’s why TABLE was so excited when Marvista Design + Build decided to invite their favorite clients to a summer soiree at their Squirrel Hill showroom, alongside sponsors Cambria Stone, Tisdel Sub Zero Wolf, Don’s Appliances, and TABLE Magazine.

Chef Brandie Lamb journeyed to Pittsburgh from her Cincinnati home, bringing her expertise as a Tisdel SubZero Wolf chef to the proceedings. She joined forces with Pittsburgh caterer Elegant Edge’s owner Judah Cowen to develop a light, bright Kosher menu.

Just before the guests gathered, Chef Brandie showed us how each dish was made. Photographer Dave Bryce and our publisher Justin Matase captured the deliciousness…and the party came alive just after.

Enjoy these dishes at a summer gathering of your own design!
