We ate, we drank, we social distanced our way through the summer and finally autumn is upon us. We’ve noticed DIY kits continue to be popular at home and we suspect will carry on into the new year as a food trend with interesting variations popping up. Making wine or beer is not new, but using a different all-in-one tool has been a fun experience. Creating fermented food has taken over as our new favourite hobby, cocktails and beverages always need a proper vessel, and nothing tastes better than homemade salumi. Eat, drink and be healthy.

Brighten up your holiday table

In what has been a rather dismal year, we’ve found a way to bring an elegant, colourful and practical look to your holiday table this season with goblets and glassware from Florence-based glassmaker Mario Luca Giusti. Each glass imitates the sophistications of crystal and glass, but is made from acrylic. Inspirati Fine Linens & Home Essentials in Mission has a curated selection of items from the well-known Italian glassmaker available in the store; however we are smitten with the Crystal Milly Old-Fashioned Glasses and the Crystal Dolce Vita Water/Wine Goblets. Each collection offers a variety of colours perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas or to match your dining table linens. They are sold in quantities of six or choose to mix and match in a preset colourful or neutral palette.
