Chef Martin Brock cooks dinner at my home

This past Saturday, I hosted a dinner party at my home in Bedford. One of my guests was clay sculptor, Clare Potter. Inspired by the bounty of her gardens, Clare creates amazingly life-like representations of flowers, fruits, and vegetables, all sculpted in porcelain and beautifully hand-painted. Some of Clare's work will be on display at Malett Inc. at 929 Madison Avenue in New York City, for two weeks beginning May 11th. My guests all agreed that the spring menu was superb. I invited Chef Martin Brock of Atria Restaurant in Manhattan to come and prepare the food. His culinary skills are rooted in French technique, but Chef Brock incorporates many global flavors, making for a unique dining experience.
