Colin Cowie Opens His Home and Cookbook to YumSugar

Dec 16 2009 - 8:00am
Colin Cowie [1] opened his New York apartment (actually, make that penthouse) to a dozen or so food writers on a recent evening. The goal was to showcase the space, which he designed himself over a two-year period, as well as some of his favorite holiday recipes.

Following a few words of welcome, Colin took us on a tour of his three-level apartment. He took care to point out space-saving devices that work wonders when he's entertaining guests, including a smart set of rolling doors that hid both his serving area and kitchen.

He had a small team on hand to help move appetizers from his Electrolux [2]-outfitted kitchen into his modern dining room, which contained enough nooks and crannies to hide his vast collection of glassware. In his words [3], he's "the Imelda Marcos of dishes." He prepared a spread of sausage rolls, toasted nuts, brandy cake, and pear cocktails.
