Martha's Party in Maine
At Martha's late-summer party at Skylands, she devised an Asian-inspired menu replete with spring rolls, rice-paper-wrapped summer rolls, crab puffs, and steamed Chinese sausages. The Skylands garden provided herbs and vegetables, including radishes and carrots. And because everyone loves them, Martha baked extra-long cheese straws made from puff pastry that looked as festive as fireworks on the table. The morning fog burned off just before the guests arrived, and the afternoon sun burnished the scene as everyone mingled.
