WOWOWOW! Graham Kostic of Glossed & Found hosted the Holiday For Reals Meals, and it was a holi-doozey. Graham actually called dibs on the holiday edition this summer…the man really loves Christmas. The lunch was pure Graham – stylish, thoughtful, and crazy festive. His guests included Samantha Saifer of Boldface Co, soon-to-be juice shop owner Anne Owen, The Find’s Chelsea Lavin, writer and editor Molly Each, Giselle Wasfie of REMIX, and makeup artist Heather Schnell. Phew. A pretty insane group of talented women.
Graham isn’t new to preparing big feasts and entertaining at home – but he was a rookie when it came to plant-based cooking. With a little help from his beau, Fran, he made one of the best FRM lunches ever. His brussels sprouts salad (inspired by Au Cheval) was such a great way to prep our bellies for the main event…shepherd’s pie. A crock full of mushrooms and vegetables covered with toasted mashed potatoes – basically a dream in a bowl. For dessert, Graham made strawberry and coconut cream parfaits topped with OPP’s Boukie Butters.
Graham really made the day feel so special. It was the best holiday party I think I’ll go to all season. So many great details to steal! And before I left, Graham asked if he could host another FRM in the Spring. Herlo? I can’t even wait.
A special thank you to Giselle for gifting us all candles from her line.
