Happy Friday dears! This week’s Dinner Bell guest, creative director and interior designer Elizabeth Damrich, is serving up an herbaceous delight. Her rosemary gin gimlet is made for autumn cocktail hours, a simple yet remarkably flavorful drink to sip.
What an honor to share an Alex Hitz recipe from his cookbook The Art of the Host for this week’s Dinner Bell. I prepared the corn chowder for dinner this week and it is divine; the perfect dish to serve for company in late summer and into fall. Whether a balmy evening al fresco or a candlelit supper in the formal dining room, the lump crab avocado salad over velvety, chilled corn chowder is a crowd pleaser.
It’s only fitting that Nan Philip would have a wonderfully classic, effortless cocktail in her arsenal. Nan is a public relations consultant in the worlds of interior design and lifestyle which translates beautifully to the handpicked recommendations she curates. I’m tickled that she has shared her must-try margarita recipe with us for this week’s Dinner Bell. Cheers dears!
If you’ve ever craved Houston’s, or Hillstone’s, iconic coleslaw but cannot get a reservation you’ll want to file away this recipe. New York-based interior designer Max Sisteden has generously shared his riff on the classic Ding’s slaw for The Dinner Bell and by gosh it is identical in taste and presentation. Max perpetually inspires me with his effortless, Ina-esque dishes and elegant table settings, you will absolutely want to follow him on Instagram. With the Fourth hot on our heels, make this quintessential summer side for family and friends—it is sure to secure your invitation to their holiday home for years to come.
