Nicole Miller Trunk Show: Hair, Boot Camp and Bacon Puffs
|Tuesday, 20 March 2012 20:54|
Jennifer had the great pleasure of spending last Sunday at Nicole Miller in Manayunk for its bridal trunk show and reported that many couples are planning destination weddings in the coming year. JPM did its first destination wedding last summer in the Poconos, and we wouldn't mind branching out a little further, like Jamaica or Mexico, for instance.
Nonetheless, Jennifer served up the local goods with some fine hors d'ouerves, including a new offering: Bacon Mousse Puff (left photo, see recipe below). It's hard to describe but if you like quality bacon (the only meat I eat anymore), you'll love this popper. Speaking of which, Jennifer also served Potato and Salmon bites (bottom photo), favored with braised leeks and farmer's cheese. Finally, her Parmesan Shortbread (right photo) with tomato chutney was rich and zesty.
There were plenty of other reasons for brides to stay close to home, in addition to Nicole Miller's well-known selection of stylish offerings. Notable was the buff Bridal Bootcamp rep from RowZone, which offers no-commitment memberships and seems to have a lot of satisfied customers.
Jennifer recognized Salon l'Etoile & Spa, where she had her hair done for our wedding almost two years ago, and it was nice for her to get to know more about the Main St. Manayunk operation They've got more than 30 years experience, supremely talented stylists and staff, and they offer specific bridal packages, including a bachelorette spa party.
Of course the reason we were there in the first place was our good friend Avi Loren Fox of Avi Loren Fox Photography. Avi is amazing, as evidenced by her photos of our food in this post and also here.
And I have to say you really should try the Bacon Mousse Puffs, so here's Jennifer's original recipe:
