Blogger, chef, and professionally stylish homemaker Athena Calderone recently translated her good taste off the plate and into the pages of a new book, Cook Beautiful.

To celebrate, we joined Athena, along with a few design-loving friends, to eat our way through a few of the new cookbook’s best recipes. At a cozy fall table set inside jeweler Irene Neuwirth’s stunning Melrose shop, party goers enjoyed four courses of Athena’s recipes from a surprisingly complex celery salad with hazelnuts to a butterscotch pot de creme to die for.

Co-hosting the evening were Athena’s recent design collaborators, Chairish – an impressive online vintage marketplace we were more than happy to discover for ourselves. Browse through our selection of TCM faves from Athena’s Chairish collection below and hunt for a few gems of your own here.

Let Cook Beautiful inspire you to host a few dinners of your own this season and steal a stunning recipe from its pages here.
