What struck me about mustard making was not really the simplicity, but the opportunity to turn the by-product—vinegar and white wine soaked garlic and onions—into something else we might consume. I opted for the route I usually travel with odds & ends of spare or wilty veg: soup!
I always forget how simple mosaics can be, as simple as a broken mirror, sturdy glue and something to stick it on.
Forget vintage and thoughtful decor, we all know who the real star of the show is…Miss Isobel, of course.
Last week I employed HGGH entertaining and decor operatives for Molly O’Neill’s (of Cook n Scribble fame) LongHouse Food Revival here in Austin. My task: turn a dusty art studio/event space into a cozy dinner for 150, on a budget, of course.
