We lost it this winter didn’t we? All we wanted to do was hide inside and cozy up by a fire. But now that summer is here, the urge to entertain is hitting us hard. Whether you’re planning a huge outdoor wedding or organizing a small gathering in the backyard, there are lots of great resources available that can help you go from party host to party master.
We absolutely love curing our own salmon at Devour and have been doing so pretty much since the very first Devour event way back in 1997. As summer approaches and we want to be outside as much as possible and not slaving over a hot hot stove - we started thinking of delicious recipes where no heat is required to create something wonderful to eat.
A dinner party isn’t just about the food. There’s a whole art to hosting and planning a great gathering, no matter how simple or sophisticated of an event it is.

Chances are you have put a lot of thought into the food you are serving, so let’s showcase it in the best light possible!

The focus is on commemorating a life lived, sharing memories, and letting both the tears and laughter flow.
