Dinner with Jackson Pollock

Our desire to splatter paint an IC white linen tablecloth is strong – just waiting for a client’s request! In the meantime we are enjoying the recently published, ‘Dinner with Jackson Pollock’. Full of handwritten recipes by Jackson; his artist wife, Lee Krasner; and many other close friends and family of the artist – it gives an insightful look into Pollock’s life and home. And, it inspired our visual mood board for dinner with JP…

Crayfish Party Checklist

If you are Swedish or know a Swede, in August it’s Crayfish Party time. This involves many key components:

1. EAT Crayfish (see a special recipe from Stockholm based Eriksberg’s Chef, John Hertz)
Cook to a full boil:
5 cups water
1/2 cup course salt
1/2 cup beer
2 suger cubes
Lots of crown dill, this is the most import part. Crown dill when dill goes into bloom (its the flowers of the dill plant)
Cook the crayfish for 10 mins
Remove crayfish after 10 mins and place them into ice bath to let them cool
Take the cooking liquid and let it cool off completely, then place the crayfish back in the cooled liquid
Place them in the refrigerator till being served
Serve the crayfish at room temp
*Recipe for 20 crayfish and will keep for at least a week in the refrigerator

2. DRINK Snaps – the strong liquor of choice ‘sipped’ (this is a very important tip) after singing…

3. SING Swedish drinking songs

4. WEAR Party Hats – might look cheesy but they are a must

5. USE Lots and lots of NAPKINS – we love our IC colour bordered monogrammed linen ones!

6. PARTY!
