as sweet as pie

I’m so lucky to have these amazing relationships in the food world…they always produce something special and this was the perfect day for a pick-me-up! it’s been a long end of summer…after the unfortunate accident of breaking my leg at a wedding, and weeks of being in a cast of one form or another, on crutches, and being immobile – it’s definitely gotten the best of me. so to open my computer this morning to a feature on Food52 with the lovely miss maggie of Eat Boutique was just what the doctor ordered!

as I sit on this rainy winter’s day, my mind wanders to warmer seasons and I was reminded that I had yet to share this little snippet. you may already know that I have a huge business crush on chive events - I love their business model and whether a wedding or one of their suppers, I truly enjoy working with them. the day was perfection and I had my husband in tow…we juggled cocktails and cameras and enjoyed an amazing view, the late afternoon sun, and a nosh or two all while benefiting charity at Thomas Jefferson’s summer home in Manchester-by-the-Sea. each supper supports a non-profit and on this day, proceeds from the Supper On the Sea were donated to Change Is Simple, Inc., whose approach to educating about our environment is quite inspiring. chive’s “hooked” event was quite amazing too if you missed that post here…along with some “behind the scenes” in their kitchen…and a wedding of one of their own, here.

so to say that I love a good sweet might be an understatement…and to say that I simply adore French macarons is yet another underestimation on how I feel about these tasty little treasures. they make the perfect addition to a wedding or special gathering…to serve or as a favor. thank you to the lovely Claudia of C. Crowells Fine Confections for inviting me to capture her process of making this lovely French confectionery. and thank you too for the box of macs that barely made it home to share…they were delish!

Claudia shared her technique + recipe for her honey lavender macs over on Eat Boutique…read more about Claudia and her recipe here.


Local Market

Maggie, founder of Eat Boutique, just has a knack for creating a community around food.  And in keeping with all things Eat Boutique, their first Local Market was perfection…hosted at the ever so fabulous 12 Chairs, droves of fans and customers came to sample + buy from a carefully culled assembly of food purveyors.  Skip on over to the EB blog to read about the Holiday Market in December.  I will be there, camera in-hand, to capture more of this goodness.

a Chive Events wedding

When I was invited to shoot some of the highlights + details for the wedding of one of the lovely ladies of Chive – I was thrilled!  Chive puts on an event like no other and this was no different…an afternoon filled with great company, fabulous food, and divine drink.  and so charming – in lieu of gifts, guests were asked to bring something sweet for dessert.  their vintage details were perfection from the bride’s dress to the collection of antique linens.  Thank you Ladies for having me along and heartfelt congrats to Lindsey + Mike.  xo, H.

oh Chive, how do I love thee, let me count the ways…an afternoon filled with some shooting + some sampling.  it was perfection.

I was truly amazed at the experience the women of Chive provide when hosting a new client for a tasting. Thank you for inviting me into your kitchen…and many thanks to Suzanne + Luke for allowing me to peer through their wedding planning window and capture some of that process!
