{foodie 60631} Tomato Porn

The cravings have started, the lust is growing, and satisfaction is months away ... for the first sun-riped tomato.

The tiny seedlings are in the ground surrounded by a protective cloche, or hoophouse if you're lucky.  They're just sitting there waiting for the heat of the sun to coax them into growth and the bees to spread their genes ... yet, its still months away from the first fruit!  What's a person to do while waiting for the first tomato?  How about a little Tomato Porn to help pass the time ...

Hope you enjoy a feast for the eyes!  The rest is coming, as the clock ticks down ... 1,632 hours, 24 minutes and 6 seconds to go.  But, who's counting!?

An Evening at the Met Gala

The Gala at the Met is an amazing party. This year's event took place on Monday evening, May 1st.  While most eyes were outside on the Red Carpet, Caskata had their eyes peeled for a glimpse of the red tablecloths inside the Met’s Temple of Dendur venue. This year's event was created by celebrated New York event planner, Raúl Àvila, who has worked with Anna Wintour designing the interior space for the star-studded Metropolitan Art Meuseum Gala since 2007. Caskata’s Peony Blue plates were selected by Ms. Wintour for their striking blue floral design. We think the brilliant blue peonies that captured Ms. Wintour’s attention were indeed the focal point of the room.

Inspired by the table setting? It's Caskata Peony Blue. Need help with choosing dinnerware? View our helpful Dinnerware Resource Guide.
