A couple of weeks ago, we spent a leisurely Friday morning mixing up some craft cocktails for our Spring 2013 Cocktail Series. First up, this Cucumber Rosemary Gin and Tonic is a great way to kick things off.
Generally when the days get long and the temperatures spike, a gin and tonic is my go-to cocktail. It’s simple, refreshing, and reliable – all qualities I appreciate in a cocktail. With a squeeze of lime, it’s hard to beat – unless you start to dress it up with herbs and other subtle flavors.
We’ve already shared with you the table setting from our Hi-Rise spring dinner, but today we’ve got something even more exciting: the menu! Hi-Rise Bread Co. owner Rene planned and prepared the entire menu for the dinner, which was delicious from beginning to end. Given the springtime theme, he chose to feature a variety of in-season produce, including asparagus and rhubarb, which he incorporated into the main dish and dessert. Read on for the menu, but don’t blame us if you’re drooling by the end!
A couple of weeks ago, we published our first infographic called Know Your Knives. Today we’re back with the second installment – Knife Care and Storage! In this graphic, we briefly run through options for knife sharpening and maintenance, and then also ways to safely store your knives. Read on for more details!
This past weekend, we had the pleasure of hosting a Dinner Series event at Hi-Rise Bread Company. Their team cleared out the bakery, and we had a lovely entertaining space at our disposal. Rene, the owner and chef at Hi-Rise, planned and prepared the menu, and guests were invited to enjoy an evening of delicious good, plentiful wine, and general merriment.
Weeks before the event was held, the team at Didriks got to work planning this stunning table setting, a spring-based theme that incorporated a several new products, loads of color, and an air of rustic whimsy that suited the space and the meal so perfectly.
