Fiona Leahy and her team created the most beautiful tablescape for the welcome dinner. We did one long table that ran parallel to the sea. We hosted the dinner at the Treville Beach Club. Aperol spritzes and Neapolitan-style pizza were served during cocktails while we watched the sunset. Dinner was burrata with local heirloom tomatoes, pasta with zucchini grown at the Treville, and local sea bass baked in a salt block. For dessert, we did homemade lemon sorbetto served in frozen lemons.
The plates are made by the same family that owns Le Sirenuse—the iconic Positano hotel. Chiara Perano of Lamplighter London did all of the calligraphy for the weekend. She handwrote guests’ names on black rocks and created the most beautiful menu that was inspired by a nearly 1900s-era beach club menu that I found. Fiona Leahy also made the salt and pepper cellars out of oyster shells herself.
