“I grew up with a large extended family, so my childhood holiday dinners were always blissfully chaotic affairs—large platters of food passed around by aunts, uncles and cousins and people talking over one another. My ideal holiday soiree is an elevated take on this tradition. I’ll be testing out recipes from Yotam Ottolenghi’s newest cookbook, Simple. Because we eat with our eyes—and also because I simply can’t stop myself from having a theme—my table setting will be inspired by the moody tones of a Vermeer painting. I’ll update the traditional holiday palette with rich forest green and smoky glassware (a throwback trend I’m loving) and plants in lieu of a floral centrepiece. And I’ll pass out some CXBO mint chocolates post-feast—just in time for any encounters under the mistletoe.”
