Host a laid back supper with a Scottish twist for family and friends.

Scot or not, tartan is in. “I’ve always been mad for tartan,” says designer Stephen Campbell, “but this year especially.” This classic plaid, and its many versions, “signifies family, folklore, and the familiarity of home,” he says. Cozy and sophisticated, it sets the tone for our open house cocktail supper, designed just for you by not only Stephen, but also Assistant Test Kitchens Director Rebecca Kracke Gordon and Test Kitchens Professional Pam Lolley.

Now come inside, won’t you, where it’s warm and the air is laced with the sweet spice of mouthwatering crab cakes and fresh-cut fir. Beneath the soaring arches of this Gothic-inspired cabin, we’ll unwind, relax, and catch up with friends. When you leave, our hope is that you’ll take with you ideas for your next gathering with your own clan.

Designer Tips and Tricks:
Ensure success by using the right tools. Stephen swears by these items and promises you’ll love them too.
