November's editor letter
said it perfectly: our food & entertaining
issue celebrates life's pleasures on every scale. From our relaxed California cover girl and the glamorous food styling of Diana Yen to a family-centered beach picnic, each of our charming subjects possesses a unique brand of hosting and toasting.
The most important entertaining factor? Comfort. Self-declared lounging expert Joy Bryant
invited us into her Highland Park home, admitting"the goal is that, indoors or out, we have spots that are comfortable and peaceful," says Bryant of her household's philosophy.
Chef and food stylist Diana Yen has left us eagerly inspired for the upcoming holiday season. In our recent issue, @jewelsofNY
created three cocktail-and-appetizer pairings
that have our tastebuds dreaming. Campari and oysters, anyone?
From alluring tabletops to the earthy landscapes of the West Coast, this issue has taught us that good food can be enjoyed anywhere. Seth and Kendra Smoot
(and their adorable young daughters) know a thing or two about growing and cooking their own meals. Farm to (beach) table never looked so good.
