We opted for Panzanella, which is essentially a bread salad hailing from Tuscany-- and it's always a crowd-pleaser at any gathering. This particular recipe calls for grilled eggplants, zucchini, heirloom tomatoes, scallions and fennel, but the real star is the rustic grilled bread. There's something magical about bread, olive oil, and a hot grill!

We can't throw a party without offering a take-home gift. Infused olive oils are a great send-home party favor that you can customize with a label of your choice. We made three varieties: red pepper flake, lemon, and rosemary. Simply fill glass bottles with your favorite olive oil and infusions- whether it be lemon peels, garlic or herbs, these are as pretty as they are delicious.
