Lee Goodner of Cambridge Wine and Spirits helped us choose a beautiful bottle of whiskey to complete our evening at Jim and Page’s. After dinner, we settled into the living room where the fire had been blazing all night, and Jonathan poured generous nips into Simon Pearce Norwich beakers from a beautiful and classic hand-blown decanter. We paired the whiskey with some sweets we picked up at from Formaggio Kitchen; Bonnie’s Jams Nuts in Honey and Taza Chocolate. (Read more on Taza here)

In our eighth dinner, we celebrated the winter harvest with generous helpings of winter vegetables like squash, fennel, carrots, and radicchio (it’s sweeter this time of year). We came together at our friends’ Jim and Page’s beautiful dining room table, set with Chilewich, Libeco Home linen, Simon Pearce glassware and dinnerware, and Sabre flatware. The dinner made for a warm evening spent over a hearty meal–our favorite kind.
