Gathering of the Bourbonites

Our annual bourbon tasting was cancelled following the sudden death of dear friend and Beaufort wine and spirits aficionado, Larry Bernard. Larry had been planning the event since last summer and had already purchased some small batch bourbons for an upscale tasting.

Chicken Tartiflette

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, chicken and potatoes baked with Brie! Tartiflette is a traditional French dish featuring potatoes, bacon, cream and Reblochon cheese.

Movin’ & Shakin’

Movin' & Shakin' What's more fun than a Friday night with girlfriends? Jodie Miller and I put together a Movin' & Shakin' party over the weekend to celebrate the move of Plum Productions and Susan DeLoach Photography to new locations. We invited some of our favorite moving and shaking friends to join us downtown to sample a few of my new hors d'oeuvres and to have a cocktail or two. Brenna Chiaviello, who bakes all of the wedding cakes for Catering by Debbi Covington, brought a delicious chocolate cake to add to our little soiree. After all, as Julia Child said “a party without a cake is just a meeting!” We convened at Plum ...
