Setting The Table with Chloé Crane-Leroux

Meet Chloé Crane-Leroux, a photographer from Montreal who is currently based in New York where she has created a strong portfolio ( and following ) with her je ne sais quoi  lifestyle and stunning imagery. We sat down with Chloé to hear how sets her apéro table. 

How would you describe your hosting style? 

I absolutely love hosting. I usually love to serve apéro first, which is short for apéritif. It's an hour or so before dinner where you welcome your guests over a cocktail (or two) and a few pre-dinner snacks. Then, I love cooking a colorful plant-based meal. The whole night is set with candles, jazz music and a good vibe. I would say that my typical hosting styles mix between french flair and typical Danish hygge.

What is your favorite summer dish to serve? 

Any kind of tart, maybe an asparagus or tomato tart, I love cooking with seasonal ingredients!

How did you decide which Y&D pieces to use for hosting an intimate dinner? 

I chose pieces that could be transferred from the apéro hour to dinner hour very easily. Lots of small dishes for sharing -- I love that!
