360-Degree Table Setting

No Comments 02 August 2013

Recently, our friends at Observatory Hill Studio acquired some pretty neat new software that allows them to photograph objects and table settings from a 360-degree perspective. It’s great for showcasing certain objects that have a unique or inconsistent shape, but it’s also fantastic for sharing a complete dinner table setting. You can spin the image to see a particular item or angle, and zoom in to see finer detail.

This is the first table setting we tried with the new software, and it came out pretty well! We invite you to take a peek and see what you think – hopefully this is just the first of many new interactive settings.

Feedback welcome! Hope you get out there and eat something delicious this weekend.

Hi-Rise Spring Dinner Series: The Table

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.

Oysters on the Half Shell, Two Ways

No Comments 24 March 2012

Most people get their raw oyster fix during happy hour. In Cambridge, some of the best spots are the Legal Sea Foods bar at the Charles Hotel in Harvard Square or Rafiki Bistro, halfway between Harvard and Porter Square on Mass Ave. But, as we’ve been discovering recently, they’re a real treat at home too.

The tough shells of these mollusks can be intimidating, especially if you have to shuck a dozen or two for guests. But opening them only takes a kitchen towel, an oyster knife, and a little practice.
