tender is the night

“Oh man, that was the best New Year’s ever.” That’s my friend Alex talking. I texted her a few weeks back because…let’s just say I was struggling to recall some crucial details from the monumental night in question. It wasn’t some raging bash, but a dinner party. And therein lay the genius of it. This was ten years ago. My wife, Simone, and I were living in a one-bedroom Greenwich Village apartment. A few days before New Year’s, we asked each other, “What if we don’t go out this year?” What if we don’t schlep from party to party, trying desperately to hail cabs on a 23-degree night? Turns out we weren’t alone in our thinking. We made a few calls and in no time we assembled a crew of ten. We had all…

On Giving & Getting THE UNREDEEMED P !Are gift cards ever a good idea? Only for the stores. Last year $1 billion worth were lost down the back of sofas or “fiiled” into oblivion. If you insist on giving one, ensure it’s for a store the recipient shops from. CASH IN HAND P !For service providers (like my dog walker), is cash really the only gift? Yes! But give it with a (dog-themed) card. NO MEANS NO P !How do I convince people I really, truly mean “no gifts”? To demonstrate your request is sincere— suggest a charity. PARTY WHINE P !Is there anything to take to a dinner party besides wine? It’s baffling that wine is the go-to gift, since many get nervous buying it. Instead, give exceptional examples of everyday staples: fine olive oil, Champagne vinegar, artisanal pasta, fileur…

the new essentials

CLIPS $24 FOR 24 Are we really telling you to give bag clips for the holidays? You bet. They’re indispensable— stronger than bargain brands and chic enough that they won’t seem out of place holding a stack of papers. Bet you can’t use just one. food52.com NORDIC WARE JUBILEE BUNDT PAN, $40 A great cake never goes out of fashion, but that doesn’t mean the Bundt pan couldn’t use a makeover. This geometric pattern will make any cake seem downright futuristic. wayfair.com CHOCOLATE PANETTONE, $50 Roy Shvartzapel bends the laws of physics to make a panettone so good it reduced our food editors to gasps and groans.

on the bubble

SPARKLING JULEP Muddle 6 mint leaves and ¾ oz. simple syrup in a large goblet or julep cup. Add ½ oz. cognac, 3 oz. Champagne or dry sparkling wine, and 1 dash bitters (such as Angostura).

PUNCH MAKES the party. Yes, the prime-rib roast matters too, but no one ever told an inappropriate joke after eating meat. Punch is also nothing if not practical: Shaking individual cocktails to-order is a chore—for you and your guests. Punch is the answer. It’s so lowmaintenance you’ll forget it’s even there…until your entire guest list is gathered around it. You could do the traditional bowl-and-ladle thing, but then you wouldn’t get to decorate your dispenser all nice and pretty (see Prep School, page 165, for a few pointers). No dispenser? Get one. We like the Godinger Dublin Crystal model ($70) from bedbathandbeyond.com (pictured). Just some advice: This cranberry-vermouthsherry punch goes down easy. You’ve been warned. Under-the-Mistletoe Punch 20 SERVINGS This recipe easily scales down by half, or even all the way to…
