What would Chris Hastings serve at his ultimate dinner party?
It depends on whether it’s a big party or a sit-down among a small group of people where you have really dynamic conversation and great food. Both of those are a lot fun. Each year we do a Christmas party with all of our neighbors; we carol and do a great buffet and lots of food. We bring in a violinist who plays Christmas songs and we sing along. But I really like serving small groups multi-course meals where I do all the cooking and serving, but it’s usually a long meal and [the menu] depends on what time of year it is.
