A GATHERED FEAST
You might be curious as to why I chose the name FÊT. Yeah? I spent a year of my life learning to feast…on sounds, flavors, art, experiences, adventures, conversations, solitude, tastes, architecture and rest while I lived in Paris. I drank champagne for breakfast and gathered ingredients for a grazing board nearly each day - cheese from the cheesemonger at Marche des Enfants Rouges who taught me about the difference you can taste when the goats have been grazing on fall leaves in the Alps - meats from the tiny wonder shop around the corner called Caractère de Cochon. The afternoon was spent adding wine, breads and fruits to the bounty and then a bike ride would take me to gathered friends, simply unfolding the feast onto a blanket.
The heart of my work on the board is not only to showcase flavors but to slow time, to set an atmosphere of feasting, to gather around a table and exist together for a moment. I’m passionate about the art of preparing the table.
FÊT \ pronounced fāt \ fet \ is my little twist in the French word fête which means to feast or celebrate.
