Holiday Memories: A Special Holiday Luncheon at My Farm

For the holidays, I'm sharing a few of my favorite memories from years past. This special gathering was originally posted on Dec. 22, 2018 - enjoy this encore blog!

The holiday season is among my favorite times to entertain.

Yesterday, I hosted a very special gathering for the entire staff at my Bedford, New York farm. All my employees work so hard during the year - caring for the property and my many pets and gardens and helping me prepare for parties and other events. In particular, I wanted to honor my longtime housekeeper, Laura Acuna, who has worked with me at my homes for 32-years! I planned a festive holiday meal, which was served buffet style in the Winter House kitchen. It included a delicious endive salad, tomahawk steaks, lamb chops, roasted sweet potato, homemade blinis with cottage cheese and my own pink applesauce, macaroni and cheese, stollen and Panettone, and Alexis’s Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies. It was a busy morning of cooking and preparing, but we had a most enjoyable luncheon!

Here are some photos, enjoy.
