Diner en Blanc 2013 Picnic Basket Ideas

It’s that time of year again where you have to pack your picnic basket, and head to the most elegant party in Philly, Diner en Blanc.  The question is what to bring?  Well I have a delicious recipe for you. It’s something easy, but it will look fabulous on a white table.  Here are my suggestions of an appetizer, main course, and dessert; with a wine pairing.

Remember there is still time to register for the waiting list.  This is a “not-to” miss party in Philadelphia.  For more information visit http://philadelphia.dinerenblanc.info/

Zucchini Quiche



3 Cups of Zucchini, cubed

1 Cup of Bisquick

1 Cup of Cheese (in this case I used Sharp Cheddar)

1/2 Teaspoon of Marjoram

1/4 Teaspoon of Garlic Powder

Salt & Pepper to taste

1/2 Cup of Extra Virgin Olive

1 Small to Medium Onion, diced

1 Tablespoon of dried Parsley

4 Eggs


Preheat oven to 350F. Place everything in a big bowl and mix. Place into 9″ inch baking pie dish and bake for about 35 minutes. You want a nice golden crust on top. Enjoy with a nice crisp salad.
