gather ’round

“DO YOU ENTERTAIN much?” an acquaintance asked me not long ago. To my surprise, I didn’t have a cogent reply. “Yes,” I told her. Then, “No, not really.” She waited patiently for me to clear up what it was I meant. “We love having people in our house,” I told her. “Whether or not they’re entertained, I don’t know.” I was hedging because there’s a chasm the size of Pikes Peak between what I think of as “entertaining” and what actually happens when we have people in our home—which does happen often. The former connotes a performance, orchestrated to a specific, perfect end; the latter is far less refined and probably involves me throwing a bottle of white wine in the freezer because I’d forgotten to chill it before the doorbell…

cherry Meyers EDITOR-AT-LARGE “I recently attended one of Meadow Lark Farm Dinners’ events at Aspen Moon Farm in Hygiene (north of Boulder), and it was a near-perfect evening” says Cheryl Meyers, who wrote “Set The Scene” (page 43) about ideas for prepping a gorgeous outdoor table. “Picture a long, white-clothed table set for 40 guests right in the middle of a farm field, with fresh strawberries growing within reach and a cottonwood tree overhead offering shade. Is there a better place than Colorado for outdoor summer dinners? I can’t think of one.” Meyers is 5280 Home’s editor-at-large. Preston utley PHOTOGRAPHER Because he primarily makes his living as a wedding photographer, Preston Utley has been witness to plenty of beautiful outdoor events—including the dinner party thrown by Pete Marczyk and Barbara Macfarlane (owners of Marczyk Fine…

BE OUR GUEST Summer is nearing its end, and you’ve finally got the backyard landscaping dialed in. The veggie-garden tomato crop is going gangbusters, and the grill is finely tuned after a season of perfect steaks. It’s time for an outdoor party. All you need now is a place for all those neighbors to gather around for your feast. Our suggestion: a rustic heirloom-quality table (pictured here) from Harvest Table Company in Lyons. Each one-of-a-kind piece, handcrafted from locally salvaged barn wood, can be built to your specifications (custom orders start at $2,500) or, if you live near Boulder, rented (for $75 per night). “One of our biggest challenges is locating barn wood from Colorado,” says woodworker and Harvest Table co-founder Carter White. “It’s something we strive to do. We contact…

eat, drink, be merry

Peggy Markel has spent a quarter century leading foodie tours through some of the world’s most delicious destinations—from Italy’s Amalfi Coast to India’s Rajasthan region—for her company, Peggy Markel’s Culinary Adventures. So much time spent poking around the classically beautiful villas and kitchens of the Mediterranean and beyond has turned Markel into something of a design devotee in addition to an epicurean expert. Which is why, when she recently decided to renovate the kitchen in her Longmont home, this effortlessly beautiful and cook-friendly design emerged. Markel channeled the elegance and utility of natural materials typically used in kitchens in Italy, Morocco, Spain, and India into her floors (wood), walls (clay), and counters (marble). But she also incorporated functional items, like deep kitchen drawers and a farmhouse sink, both from IKEA. The…

TABLECLOTHS “Like scarves, you can never have too many of them,” Markel says. “I collect them from around the world. My favorites are from Lisa Corti Emporium. She’s an Italian designer who has taken Indian block print and refined it to her taste.” lisacorti.com DINNERWARE “Thea Tenenbaum and Raffaele Malfarrari make some of the most extraordinary handmade, hand-painted ceramics anywhere,” Markel says. “I have plates, bowls, bouillabaisse bowls for soup and pasta, cereal bowls, ice cream bowls, tiny plates, large serving bowls, and a few pitchers.” Available at the Boulder Arts & Crafts Co-op, boulderarts andcrafts.com and thealelepottery.com COOKWARE “I’m in love with tagines,” Markel says. “I prefer clay, as the food braises just right. Cazuelas, the shallow clay dishes used in Spanish cooking, are also great cooking vessels. Like tagines, they not only cook…
