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.

The Menu

2 Comments 13 October 2010

For our fifth dinner series, we sought out Chef Robert Harris of Season to Taste Catering (Best of Boston 2010) to prepare a delicious fall gourmet meal and set a gorgeous harvest table of Match Pewter, Simon Pearce glassware, and Libeco Home Belgian linen in the showroom of European Country Antiques. Packed with beautiful furniture from the countrysides of England, France, and Ireland; the Observatory Hill antique shop (that’s a friendly neighbor of Didriks) provided a charming, rustic setting for the dinner party. The rich antique textures of their pine cupboards and farm tables dovetailed perfectly with the dull luster of the Match Pewter tableware and the sober candor of the heavy Belgian table linen.
