The World According to the Drink-Syrup Masters of Quince & Apple

Meet Matt and Clare, the delightful founders and faces behind Quince & Apple, one of our favorite makers for drink syrups and jams. The dynamic duo handcrafts small-batch preserves and drink syrups out of their kitchen in Madison, Wisconsin, and their passion and attention to detail shines in each inventive flavor (Honey Lemon syrup, anyone?) they create.

What We’re Loving: Spirited Cocktails for Halloween

Come, sit for a spell (sorry just a little Halloween humor). Living just a few miles from Salem, Massachusetts, I appreciate this spooky, kooky, creepy, crawly holiday in a way that goes beyond the scares, tricks, and treats. Halloween, to me, is truly a magical time (and it’s not just because of the witches). When else can

Six Ridiculously Delicious Rhubarb Recipes

Want to know a (not-so-secret) secret? Maggie is crazy—as in over the moon—about rhubarb. How do I know? Let’s just say that the last few weeks of recipe testing for her upcoming cookbook, Food Gift Love, have included a delightful amount of rhubarb-centric recipes. Not that I’m complaining. I have been hopelessly devoted to the

Five Reasons to Fall for Campari

by Kate H. Knapp

Oh, Campari, how I have loathed and loved you. And I am not alone. Many find the first few sips of this scarlet-hued liqueur to be a bit abrasive. It is only after persevering through a bit of face puckering that one discovers how delightful and strangely addictive the bitter-orange-flavored elixir can be. My love

Food Gift: Basilcello

I remember my initial sip of homemade Limoncello. It was my very first small batch infusion, and after 40 days of marinating, the cordial’s big reveal was at a backyard picnic with all my European friends. I suppose I’m the risky type. I felt that my version tasted better than the store-bought kind and used

Apple Orange Hot Toddy

When the air gets nippy, we want a hot beverage (with just a little booze) to help combat the cold. Thankfully, Denise has a Hot Toddy with a dash of homemade apple simple syrup and a bit of orange that is sure to warm those chilly afternoons.  All that’s left to do is sip and sigh

Rachel volunteered at one of our very first Eat Boutique Holiday Markets, and has returned to every single event since. That’s five big markets, people, so she’s worked herself into my life such that my Mom now asks, “How’s Rachel?” every single month. Eat Boutique adores you, Rachel, and I’m even more delighted to congratulate

We’ve been sharing sneak peeks of our Makers; now it’s time to talk about some of the amazing mini-events going on during the Eat Boutique Boston Holiday Market on December 7, 2013.

It’s finally getting chilly in New England, just in time to enjoy the best season of all. I’m in the midst of drying herbs for the long winter (that’s apparently supposed to be mild this year!), storing away jars and jars of apple sauce, and planning for the Eat Boutique Boston Holiday Market. We’re also

One of my dear friends isn’t a drinker. Whenever we go out, he orders a Shirley Temple while the rest of us get beer or cocktails. He’s fine with it, and I am too – mostly. Until my partner and I have him over and have to serve him his drink of choice with subpar

I’ve been lucky enough to travel to London, Paris, Berlin, Milan, Venice, Madrid… all over Europe. The one place that’s been on my travel wish list since I was a wee lass is the tiny land of Ireland. And even though I married a man with strong Irish roots, a trip to his ‘homeland’ has

What We’re Loving: Boozy Preserves

We’ve all done it: eyed the jam in the corner and thought, “I wonder if a little vodka in there would make it better?” The answer my friends, is yes. I’ve spent the past couple weeks scouring the internet and have come to these conclusions: Fruit is delicious Fruit that is preserved to go into

Fig & Melon Martini

Harvesting heaps of melons, gourds and tomatoes in late summer is the sweetest victory, especially after months of weeding, watering and keeping the pests at bay. I suppose it’s no big surprise but my perennial reward is a garden-inspired cocktail. Fresh figs and melons dress up my antipasti plates, so I knew they would certainly
