Entertaining inspiration from Alabama Chanin

September 24, 2015

We are huge fans of the Alabama Chanin style and it is more than just their gorgeous clothes, housewares and DIY kits for home creatives.

One of the lovely elements of their DIY Books is that not only do you get stacks of patterns, How-2's on sewing stitches and lots of tips on working with jersey - also included are recipes of the team's favourite southern dishes.

To get you in the mood checkout this article on BonAppetit.com which takes us behind the scenes at a friends and family dinner recently held on their rural Alabama farm - entertaining Alabama Chanin style sounds pretty good !
