Forced dinner parties can be contrived, and stuffy at best. But when Brooklyn-based designer Caron Callahan
, and her husband, Marlow & Sons
executive chef, Sean Rembold, host a festive fête, it's absolutely delicious, stimulating, and, in a word, cool. So, of course, we had to know how they entertain
, and the chatter that goes along with the beautiful place-settings and memorable fare. Throwing on one of her impeccable frocks (her own creation, of course), Caron
greets guests while Sean mixes up a unique and savory plate (his own recipe, of course) in the kitchen, and we just try to soak it all in. The result? A comprehensive Brooklyn at-home entertaining guide from two absolute masters
—playlists and cheap wine recs, included—and an interview that beats any stale dinner conversation.
