Fabulous food in a glorious space

A party at Mike and Dena's is a welcome treat!  They have taken their Queen Anne home and turned it into a place one does not want to leave. Mike and Dena have created spaces in their vertical garden that are over the top. This is their outdoor living and dining room. Image dining al fresco in Seattle year round... 

Mike is at the built-in pizza oven preparing our next course. Both Mike and Dena are accomplished cooks. Their cookbook collection is the largest I've seen. Mike says together they create something new each week.

This is at the top of their terraced garden. Lovely views of Puget Sound.

Cocktails beginning at the top.

Lovely Natelie who co-hosted the amazing evening with her husband Bob.

I am with my wonderful friend Annie. We rarely get to have a social evening together without all of our children. It's that that makes us happy in this photo-not the alcohol.
