Piece: Handmade kitchen table
Several years ago, a colleague and very special friend decided to leave the corporate hustle and take a leap from the New York fashion industry to a farm in Tennessee. When he left the city, he offered me his beautiful dining table which he had built from scratch. From the moment it arrived in my apartment, I knew that it would be in my life for a while. Little did I know at the time, this table was about to embark on a journey with me as I (also) transitioned from casual home cooking, to culinary school, to starting a catering business.
Soon after welcoming the table into my home, I began hosting monthly supper clubs as a way for strangers to meet and gather around a meal. Needless to say, I am forever thankful to my friend for bringing this table into my life. It will always mark the beginning of new journeys for us both, and will always be a gathering place for faces old and new.
