Holiday Cocktail Round-Up

1 Comment 26 November 2012

Now that Thanksgiving has passed, it’s officially the holiday season!  There are plenty of things to plan for – holiday travel, big family meals, and the crowds you’ll entertain or be a part of in someone else’s home. The most important thing is to surround yourself with the people who are most important to you – but food and drinks only add to the fun.

In years past, we’ve shared a variety of holiday cocktails on this blog, and we’re excited to do the same this year! We’ve teamed up with some mixologists and members of our local libations community to bring you some fun and inventive holiday cocktails, but before we get to that we’ve compiled a round-up of some of our favorite cocktails from the archives!

Dinner 23: Thanksgiving with the Dinner Series Crew

No Comments 19 November 2012

A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated Thanksgiving Dinner Series style, with our team at Didriks and Local Root. We went all out with a turkey and numerous sides for a wonderful feast. We set the table with merchandise from Didriks, settling on a subtle harvest theme which seemed well suited to the Thanksgiving meal.

Our place settings were inspired by Libeco Home table linens. We picked a color palate that was reminiscent of the harvest, soft, warm hues that gave the table a relaxed feel. Continue Reading

Pot Roast and Roasted Root Vegetables

No Comments 12 October 2012

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. As a frequent cook and an avid baker, it’s a bit embarrassing to admit that I hadn’t ever made a pot roast until about a month ago. I’ve eaten my share of them, but never cooked one on my own. Large cuts of meat can be a bit intimidating, figuring out how best to prepare them, and how to measure when they’re done cooking. The great thing about a pot roast is you cook the meat so far past the point of being cooked through that you’ll never have to worry if the center is still raw. In fact, the meat spends so much time in a broth bath in the oven that when it comes out, it’s practically falling apart it’s so tender and moist. The specific cuts of meat you generally use for a pot roast (generally a chuck roast, though top round  or a rump roast will work as well) have layers of fat between the meat, so when cooked down, that fat creates incredible layers of flavor.
