This past month, we had the great pleasure of hosting an intimate dinner in collaboration with VIPP, the Copenhagen based design brand, famed for their elegant pedal bin. Held in their beautiful Tribeca loft, company owners Sofie and Frank Egelund regaled guests with the story of VIPP in their custom kitchen of their design.
In keeping with their Danish origins, the meal and decor were Nordic in theme, kept clean and simple with tables laid with white linens and minimalist ceramics and glassware from the VIPP line. A combination of simple greens and white flowers were used in both small bud vases on the table and in large arrangements throughout the loft, created by Anna of Fox Fodder Farms.
The menu was created and produced by Rikke Storm, a Danish native living in New York and writer of the blog New York Notes. A meal vibrant in flavor and color, standout dishes included home cured salmon with chilli + lime, crostini with ricotta + fig and roast pork with mustard aioli on Pain D'Avignon brioche.
The elegant but cosy evening was capped off with a rhubarb cake and coffee served in VIPP espresso cups.
