For our fifth dinner, Didriks joined up with European Country Antiques and Season to Taste Catering for an eight-person dinner party in the antique-filled showroom of European Country Antiques. See photos from the event on our Flickr.

The main players: Robert Harris, a Boston chef and owner of Season to Taste Catering, recently awarded Best of Boston 2010, who catered the meal; Ed Stuart, owner of European Country Antiques and host of the dinner in his sumptuous store; Jonathan Henke, owner of Didriks, who provided the tableware; Hi-Rise that provided the bread and the wine; and Renée McLeod from Petsi Pies, who baked the dessert.

All local businesses located in Cambridge, they came together to create a memorable dining experience, and by dining I mean the wine, the cuisine, the conversation and laughter, the ambiance, the service all combined to create a wonderful affair that was more than the sum of its parts.
