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 are your three essential ingredients for a successful evening?
Wine, Maldon salt, and hero veggie!
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!
Finish this sentence: A dinner party isn't complete without...
Good wine and even better people!
