Autumn is a time to gather; to harvest ingredients from local farms for an innovative spin on a timeless recipe. To sip sparkling wine while pears simmer on the stove. To sit around the table and share stories with friends new and old.

The Art of Thanksgiving is a collaboration of Maine artists aligning their aesthetics to craft a minimal, modern tablescape with a muted colour palette. The old world European-style linens combined with the new Nordic ceramics create a Chef-d'oeuvre. These women are artisan chefs, farmers, photographers, artists, and designers foraging a fresh approach to traditional Thanksgiving – through supporting farmers by purchasing locally grown food and sourcing fresh botanicals from a neighboring floral farm.

The recipes focus on harvest ingredients infused with vibrant flavors of figs, maple liquor, pumpkin spice, and autumnal pears. This modern menu combines global cuisine with garden favorites.

We are thankful for the occasion to cultivate community from studio to stove and farm to table.
