They show off the same week every year !
Looking for a fun (and a little impressive) hors d’oeuvre?
I found Anne Quatrano’s (of the famed Bacchanalia) deviled eggs in “Garden and Gun” and served them on ice cream salt for stability.

“I enjoy entertaining, but I am less confident with brunch than any other meal.
Recently, the only time a group of us could get together was for a Sunday brunch…
So, this is what I served (along with “bloodies”, of course)!
I served bon appetit’s “Baked Eggs with Bacon and Spinach” in individual skillets,
baked cheese grits in ceramic apples (acquired from Bergdorf’s 20+ years ago)
and 2 types of grilled sausage. It seemed like a lot of meat, but the guys loved it!”

When traveling it can be fun to concentrate one’s photographs on one or two decorative arts. Recently in Italy the focus was an all-time-favorite craft — wrought iron.
Oh, if there were only magical snippers with which to cut and bring certain elements home to transform into lamps!
Three categories of concentration were: wrought iron gates, window grids and balconies (with a miscellaneous one or two thrown into the mix.)
Hope you enjoy — Ciao! – S.
