Last week in our New York City store, we had the wonderful opportunity to host our new friend Joy Wilson while she was in town from New Orleans. The party was to help celebrate the launch of her second cookbook, Homemade Decadence: Irresistibly Sweet, Salty, Gooey, Sticky, Fluffy, Creamy, Crunchy Treats.
Is your mouth watering yet? If you haven’t seen her books yet or read her blog, then get ready, because she is turning the food world into a party you won’t want to miss. I read about food all the time—it’s one of my passions—and discovering Joy’s blog about two years ago was a watershed moment. She’s adorable, fascinating, and, I might add, a bit sassy…and her take on food fits the MacKenzie-Childs point of view to a “T.”
It’s sort of a girl thing…I mean the way Joy talks about food. She is witty and fresh, and she is all about quality and the art of oven-to-table; a perfect fit for MacKenzie-Childs. Joy is a big fan of our Flower Market pattern, so we set the table for 25 editors and friends with Flower Market enamelware, Courtly Check ceramics, fresh flowers, and towers of her scrumptious baked goods.
