slow food slow fashion

the slow food slow fashion event at workshop
was a lovely affair....

Abigail Glaum-Lathbury and I wanted to create a small holiday
capsule collection to chase away the wintery blues
we decided to host an intimate preview of the collections
in the form of a small presentation in the window boxes at

We asked the talented folks over at Nightwood
to create a small tasting experience to compliment the palettes
we chose for our two collections
 This is the menu they came up with

the food was incredible!

The beets with and the spiced warm cider
enhanced the warmth of my collection
the milk punch and creamy garlic soup 
Abigail's wintery whites 
We wanted to create an experience to 
celebrate local tastes and talents

as Abigail and I both create our collections here in
and Nightwood utilizes seasonal and local ingredients 
to create their menu
we thought it would be a perfect pairing

The lovely folks at Koval, a local boutique distillery,
supplied us with 
Koval Pear and Koval Ginger
adding to the autmnal mixed drinks

and it was all too perfect
an unforgettable evening and a fitting
ode to the bountiful harvest of the season
