thanksgiving at the new general store
we have wonderful serving pieces handmade by barbara eigen for us in cream and fog: 2 oval platter sizes for turkey or roast vegetables, big low serving bowls for mashed potatoes, as well as stoneware jugs for cider or wine...we also have condiment sets for salts and peppers or sauces and our round wood boards are perfect for breads and cheeses or desserts. For setting the table, we love our artisanal glass tumblers and natural linen napkins and placemats from fog linen...a teak wood server is ready to go with the pumpkin pie (and makes a great hostess gift). Slate bottle tags identify wines, and juices and the slate place cards look great on the table and or can be used on platters to mark appetizers and cheeses. For the chef, our natural linen aprons make cooking a pleasure...
happy thanksgiving! photographs by jeff mcnamara,marili forastieri, tara sgroi
