For our fifth dinner we partnered with Robert Harris of Season to Taste Catering (winner of Best of Boston 2010), who set up a kitchen in European Country Antiques and served up a delicious fall meal. Below he answers a few questions on the evening’s food as well as his ideas on cooking and serving food. We’re excited about his plans to continue to cooperate with Didriks and the Dinner Series. For more, read Part 2 and visit the Flickr gallery.
For this October dinner party, in the showroom of European Country Antiques, we decided on setting a table with Libeco Home Belgian linen in harvest colors, Simon Pearce Cavendish glassware, and classic and sturdy Match Pewter dinnerware and flatware. Mouse over the image of the setting below for details.

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.
