Yesterday I shared a few of the décor details from our recent Thanksgiving gathering with friends, but the table was only a small part of the puzzle. Chef Daphne Oz taught a cooking class before we all sat down together, which turned our feast into a lively educational experience. Daphne is also a host on […]
Every year we put together a Thanksgiving meal with friends to test out recipes and catch up with each other before the holiday actually arrives. It’s a great tradition and we keep it easy with a vegetarian menu and everyone doing their part to bring the different elements together. This year I hosted with Paige […]
With so many shades of gold, red, and orange on the Thanksgiving menu, I love the idea of putting together a lush, green arrangement to balance out the colors on the table. Add in candlelight and some beautiful glasses and plates and you’ve got the perfect setting for a memorable dinner with family and friends. […]
Thanksgiving is certainly the main event during the month of November, but I love getting together with friends for a casual pre-holiday meal if I can. In that spirit, I recently put on a fall picnic lunch with the help of two talented women and personal friends; whole foods nutritionist Shira Lenchewski and Laurel Gallucci […]
I’ve always been big on hostess gifts, and with Thanksgiving upon us, I can’t think of a more deserving recipient than the person responsible for the meal at the center of it all. With this in mind, I’ve put together a list of some favorites for giving and receiving (both traditional and a bit unexpected), […]
As I shared yesterday, for our most recent get-together In the Kitchen, we were treated to an incredible Thanksgiving-inspired vegetarian meal, courtesy of the lovely and talented Dana Slatkin, aka the Beverly Hills Farmgirl. Referred to as such after starting the Beverly Hills Farmers Market in 1994, Dana, a Culinary Institute of America-trained chef, sells […]
It’s been some time since our last afternoon In the Kitchen, and with Thanksgiving right around the corner, it felt like the perfect opportunity. For this get-together, we were treated to inspiration and instruction (and an incredible vegetarian meal) from the lovely Dana Slatkin, aka the Beverly Hills Farmgirl. After friends invited me to a cooking […]
As mentioned yesterday, in preparation for the upcoming holiday, we once again teamed up with The Chalkboard Mag for a get-together both festive and delicious. On the menu for this year’s gathering: a vegetarian feast prepared by the incomparable Pamela Salzman.
In anticipation of the upcoming holiday, we once again teamed up with The Chalkboard Mag for a Thanksgiving meal and get-together that served as a perfect warm-up for the big day. On the menu and all around: a delicious vegetarian feast that was satisfying without being too heavy, and decor that was all at once festive and understated.
I was first introduced to The Kitchen Mouse’s delicious vegan food by my close friend, the very talented Kimberly Muller – they catered an event at her home last year and I was completely hooked. So when Kimberly told me that she wanted to host a lunch and have Erica (the culinary genius behind the Kitchen Mouse) cater a vegan Thanksgiving, I was thrilled.
In anticipation of the upcoming holidays, our latest In the Veggie Kitchen with The Chalkboard Mag featured the wonderful Barrett Prendergast of Valleybrink Road, and a delicious vegetarian Thanksgiving feast made up of organic, seasonal ingredients. For this class, Barrett taught us how to make some great sides – ones that I will definitely be incorporating into this year’s Thanksgiving dinner.
This year, we hosted a delicious Thanksgiving dinner at our house for family and friends. Richard and I loved having everyone here and everyone left totally stuffed!
Inspired by my incredible husband – who’s been a vegan for almost a year! – Rip+Tan and The Chalkboard teamed up to do a series of posts over this holiday season called In the Vegan Kitchen. For our first class, the amazing Annie Campbell of Apres Fete came up with a delicious vegan menu for Thanksgiving.
Fall is my favorite time of year and I especially love the holiday season. Every year I look forward to decorating our house and hosting fun dinners with friends and family. This year we hosted a really fun Thanksgiving dinner at our house for close friends and their kids. The Menu Our menu was […]
