In this installment of Best of the Hotline, we're reminded that the rules of fashion don't apply to food.

We've all heard the old rule: no wearing white between Labor Day and Memorial Day. The shade might be notably absent from our cold-weather wardrobes, but it doesn't need to disappear from our dining room tables.  

Over the HotlineClaudia | Gourmet Project asked for "totally white dishes" for white-themed party, and plenty of suggestions rolled in that work just as well for a post-Labor Day celebration as they do for a summer soirée. From soups to vegetables and desserts to sauces, here are some of the palest dishes to add to your plate:

Goat Cheese

Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream
