Oof what a day. I've felt overwhelmed, anxious and overwhelmingly full of snot. Just try and ban me from this sexy chat Instagram...
In today's #PODMAS episode I chatted about things I'm frightened to tell you. one of those things is CBeebies related, one about my new business launch which I'm bricking it about. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I should probably also be scared to tell you how much sourdough I've eaten today yet I am not.I regret NOTHING. 🖤
Today's #12DaysOfHolidayLove challenge is to make your spouse's favorite holiday drink!
If I'm being honest, I would rather have a good regular coffee in a festive mug than any of the frilly holiday drinks out there. But Pearson's loves egg nog in any shape or form (which is completely disgusting to me).
What about you? What's your favorite holiday drink? And how are you doing on the challenge? I've actually been doing pretty well even though I haven't been great at posting about it! #MarriageMoon
Reminder Alert ⚠️ Everyone can use some good ☕ over the holidays...amiright? W👁W your family, friends & loved ones with some locally made xmas ideas. Our 6-pack bundles and retail beans are available for purchase inside @craftheadsbrew and @sweetrevengebakeshopofficial We will also be popped up inside Windsor Crossing Premium Outlets @windsoroutlets from 5-9pm December 12th & 19th.

And that’s a wrap my friends!! Asian in America officially concluded its 2018 tour with a fantastic event at NYC’s Museum of Chinese in America (@mocanyc) last Friday. I am so very grateful for all the wonderful people who came to be part of this very special dining experience, donned VR headsets during their meal and opened up to their table-mates about their interpretations of the art. We have a lot in the works for 2019, with multiple cities making an appearance 😉 so stay tuned for our calendar release of next year’s tour dates on the @StudioATAO website and mailing list!
I want to extend a huge thank you to my incredible team who made the event such a great success. My husband Matt who led our FOH alongside @atomiccooler, Angelina and @wongfeifeinyc. Talk about proactively anticipating all of our setup/breakdown and guests needs while managing all our dietaries and complicated timing with ease! My all-female BOH crew @asiancomfort, @kirstenesther and Lori crushed it downstairs, cooking, plating and cleaning with a rare calmness and rhythm I feel insanely lucky to be part of. Our Ops superwoman Julie, who I’ve been working with for almost 2 (!!!) years now, who dreamt up the Studio with me and has supported it since Day 1. Our videographer @federica_nanfeng, who always makes us look so smooth and sexy with those slow-mo shots — she even wore a crazy rig (see her IG stories!) the whole 5 hours! And of course photographer @ssmphotog, who captured the most stunning shots of our food & drink that put my IG to shame. (Also special shout-out to the @BusinessInsider team who came to video, Kara and Amelia! Thanks for putting up with our crazy!) No chef can do much without the love and backing of a solid team, and I am awestruck by how lucky I am to have a crew like this one. Thank you all!
Stay tuned for full photos and footage from the event! In the meantime...I’ll be back with some interesting new plates ;) This photo above of the last course, Fancy Because It’s French taken by @joseph.magnelli
I was hoping to have a better photo to post for this, but due to a combination of crappy lighting in this weather and crappy things going on in my life, I don’t so sorry!
However, how cute is this little #handmade reindeer I brought from the #newforest last week!?🎄 •
#teddycoat is from @newlook

Seit ein paar Jahren machen wir die Weihnachtsfeier der besonderen Art: wir mieten ein (etwas) luxuriöses Häuschen z.B. am Meer und verbringen ein paar tolle Tage miteinander. Das ist so schön, dass man es kaum beschreiben kann. Ganz entspannt kochen wir zusammen, spazieren durch die Gegend, spielen Scharade und gucken Filme. Highlight ist natürlich das gemeinsame Wichteln.
Dieses Jahr hatte Anna die Idee, dass jeder sagt, wofür er dankbar ist, bevor er sein Geschenk aufmacht. Das war teilweise ganz schön rührend 😊
Ich bin unheimlich dankbar für dieses wundervolle Team, unseren gemeinsamen Erfolg und dafür, dass Arbeiten so viel Spaß machen kann.
Wofür seid ihr dankbar? -Christine #diehoffotografen#hoffotografen#dreamteam
| It’s always nice with some plain essentials! I have always liked to keep my keyholders and wallets minimal and clean. That’s two qualities that these pieces lives up to! And ofc, I just had to get my initials on them.
