What does Katrina Markoff like to bring home from her travels?
I’m always bringing back ingredients. I also like bringing back some kind of object of art whether it’s pottery or a painting. Our stores have a lot of different eclectic items in them. When I was in Turkey I had artisans hand-paint designs on nine different Turkish vases. I have some in New York and some in the Beverly Hills boutique. I try to bring back whatever I think is culturally interesting about the area I’m visiting and it often ends as an object of art in one of the stores.
