festive fun at flour + water

We’re halfway through December which has already proved itself to be a decidedly festive month! Here are a few of the things that have been keeping us busy.
We asked you for ideas on decor for our Christmas tree, and inspired by a few suggestions on twitter and facebook, we went with glossy gold farfalle. Very quick and easy to make (get the pasta, spray it gold), they’re fun and original decorations for our tree.
What’s the holiday season without some seriously good food? This year we decided to celebrate Christmas Eve, in Sicilian style with the Feast of Seven Fishes. The tradition focuses on a sumptuous feast of seafood dishes and a gathering of family and friends. The evening will be an elevated fine dining experience with a wide variety of flavorful dishes prepared table side by Chef Thomas McNaughton using the finest ingredients. Last week, Thomas was named as one of nine American culinary icons by Food & Wine Magazine and was recently anointed as one of Refinery 29‘s hottest’s Chef’s Under 30.
Happy Holidays!
