We celebrated the launch of our second book, Pittsburgh Chef’s Table, last weekend at Marty’s Market in the Strip. Party photos by Erika Michael Photography can be found here. Huge thanks to...
#6 – Wine I enjoy a glass of wine here and there. Especially when perfectly paired with multi-course menus. Puzzleboard | $26 This would make life so much easier at events that offer drinks and food. So basically every event ever. Brighton Exchange Bottle Rock | $22 I may not “get” geometry but I do “get” this geometric bottle stopper. Rainman Wine Decanter | $72 I’d make it rain all the time with this decanter.
#7 – Aprons Have you ever Googled/Pinterested “aprons?” Things with lace and terrible prints come up. Don’t buy those unless you enjoy looking like you’re from 1950. These ones are better quality and mean serious chef business. KDH x KM Light Demin Apron | $89.95 Ok, $89.95 is steep for something you wipe your hands on. But this apron is genius in that you can easily take off the mess towel and toss that in the washer to keep you looking so fresh and so clean, clean. Pinny Apron | $53 I enjoy the pattern and design of this... Read More →
#8 – Camping Gear I used to be obsessed with the woods. I actually am still obsessed with survival books. I like to be prepared. I mean you never know when you’ll have to weave yourself a shirt out of grass or build a house out of pine branches. These gear would not make it into an essential camping gear kit but most certainly into a glamping camping gear kit. Which just so happens to be my favorite kind of camping. Animal Pocket Knife | No Idea This would be of no use whatsoever in the wilderness. But wouldn’t it... Read More →
#9 – Food of the Month Clubs Yes. We already talked about food subscriptions. Those were all healthy though. These ones are the fun ones that people would actually prefer to see on their doorstep each month. Sammie of the Month Club | Starting at $55 Ice cream sandwiches are the best. They’re even better when they’re sent to your doorstep. Choose from 3, 6, or 12 months plus shipping and receive 4 custom handmade ice cream sandwiches. The flavors range from classic to adventurous (Peking Duck) and everything in between. Curated Cocktails | Starting at $40 Experience two... Read More →
#10 – 2014 Calendar Beer/Food Calendar 2014 | $26 I’m a sucker for hand drawn anything. But when those drawings include food and beer. Sign.Me.Up. 2014 Recipe Wall Calendar | $29 This is a thing of beauty. The font is beautiful. The photography and layout is beautiful. And the recipes would no doubt make a beautiful mess (at least in my kitchen). Tea Towel Apple Calendar | $28 This is so old timey. I’m always drawn to hand painted tea towels or wall hangings at vintage shops so naturally this thing of beauty would be on my... Read More →
