It’s a tad belated, but I wanted to share with you some snapshots from my adventures at the Martha’s Vineyard Wine Festival last weekend. I love those amazing days at the office when you get to travel to somewhere awesome and eat deliciousness all in the name of work. I dragged my self-employed friend Sarah along with me for the ride. We stopped along the way in Providence at one of my favorite brunch spots, Nick’s on Broadway. Once senior year rolled around and I had a car on campus, my friends and I would scoot over to Nick’s at weird hours so we could get a table.… Continue Reading
I knew that 27 was a hot age for marriage. But I didn’t expect this many of my friends to take the plunge all at once. I have 10 weddings so far in 2013. And I don’t think the list will end there. My bulletin board looks like a calligrapher vomited all over it.
My wedding season kicked off two weekends ago with a black tie evening at Lincoln Center, continued to gain momentum last weekend as I celebrated my best friend from high school’s bachelorette in Nashville, and moves full speed ahead this weekend with my college friend’s nuptials in Florida.… Continue Reading
In celebration of this week’s big Feed Me Phoebe birthday, I wanted to make sure to give back to all of you readers.
As you know, I rarely do giveaways on this site. But I’m always excited to share my favorites with you. And anyone who’s tuned into them knows that Le Creuset is top of my list.
I’ve done a few breakfast-related favorites lists – this one on getting toasty, and this one on tea time – so I’m thrilled to bring you a fabulous bundle of Soleil items from Le Creuset along with my favorite jams.
Thank you for helping me celebrate!… Continue Reading
I kicked off the week with some wonderful lady love at Madison Square Garden. My friend Lydia took me to the Fleetwood Mac concert, and we danced the night away to Stevie wisdom and slow twirls.
The rest of the week I spent chained to my stove. I thought my fridge was going to explode from all the excitement. I had two big events back-to-back, followed by a very fun and fancy wedding last night.
My week was jam packed with many wonderful women. I was thrilled to be invited to a VIP Levo League #officehours event with Sheryl Sandberg. She was even more amazing in person. I got made fun of for literally leaning in and almost off my seat.
I made a beef satay avec filet this week for my clients. It will be one of my missions to get the kids eating other cuts of beef. They will thank me one day for having a more low brow pallet when they’re the ones who have to pay for it.
I had a really great private class this week with a lovely couple in Chelsea.… Continue Reading
Over the last couple years of catering, and styling food for this site and others, I’ve collected quite the random collection of plates and platters. I only have one of everything and nothing matches, which makes stacking and storage in a small New York City studio apartment all the more interesting.
I’m lucky that my apartment has a quirky little ledge that runs above the kitchen. You need a ladder to get up there. But as the ledge has started to overflow with flower pots, punch bowls, cake stands and other things, my ladder has become the second setting of Phoebe’s hoarder’s delight.… Continue Reading
