Orange Door Hospitality

Orange Door Hospitality Orange Door Kitchen//Catering//Supper Club...An open door, a warm welcome, a cold drink, a home-cooked meal, and stories to share. Food, or more so the experience of eating together, is central to our relationship and to the memories that we have created over the years.
(10)

From our first “date" at a Mongolian grill in Richmond (with a group of 20 friends), to the first meal that we cooked together in our tiny apartment kitchen (from Rachel Ray’s BOB cookbook), to the first World's Top-50 restaurant that we saved up to splurge on (in Sweden), the highlights of our lives are threaded together by the act of sharing food with the people we love. As two New Englanders who now grow, cook, eat, and advocate for good food, we are consistently amazed by its power to create community. When we began the Orange Door Supper Club in 2015, we wanted to share food and stories with as many people as we could without quitting our day jobs. After a year of operating the club as a hobby, we realized that we actually did want to quit our day jobs to share the Orange Door experience with a larger audience. Thus, Orange Door Hospitality was born! Creating community is central to our mission and we make decisions for our business with the hope that our work - cooking delicious food together - might turn into a special memory for someone else.

What a day! Enjoying this warm November afternoon with our two favorite toys and one of our favorite games. Plus, it’s okay to show off once in a while, right?

I LOVE picky foods, hors d’oeuvres, mezze, small plates, you name it. If I can spoil my dinner before sitting down to the table, sign me up! 😉 After illustrating this story from my mom’s cookbook/memoir, #inthekitchenwithnonna, I think I get why I’d rather die and go to Appetizer Heaven than save room for dessert. Turns out, the 🍎 doesn’t fall farm from the 🌳.

Loving this little bit of Orange Door Kitchen that’s now serving as our home bar set up for parties (whenever those come back) and virtual #mixology demos/classes. Oh, and the ring light? Best $30 I spent this month!

So, I’m working on designing my mom’s cookbook/memoir that she’s written for her grandkids. It’s been a labor of love, but one that’s given me a lot of joy, an outlet for creativity, and abundant practice with @adobecreativecloud. Swipe for the contents of the book (almost final draft), and stay tuned for pages of her stories and recipes! 🧡

I 🧡 a good 🍸, but some nights (like during a @daybreakcrossfit #wellnesschallenge) call for a drink with no sugar and no alcohol. This simple little combination of sparkling water, Angostura aromatic bitters, and a slice of orange peel (expressed to release the orange oil into the glass) hit the spot last night when I really wanted a glass of wine with dinner. Try it on ice the next time you want a #dryday and let me know what you think! Happy sober sipping. 🤪

I’ve been making soft licorice in small batches since April. I love the process and the ability to experiment with flavors and texture. This here is caramel apple...and it’s mighty good. Should I have made it green or brown? I landed on a brownish green. 😋

🌱Modern Planter Design 101 📐

▫️Select a planter with clean (ie. straight) lines, and a finish that complements its surroundings. A “complementary” finish can be #contrasting (like a dark metal planter against a light stucco wall) or similar and #harmonious (like a medium gray planter with a horizontal texture against light gray painted vertical siding). The previous owners of our house left us two tall, tapered, textural planters that harmonize beautifully with the house siding and trim colors.

▫️Use a few different plants in the arrangement. Min 3, max 5. We used two types of grasses, live eucalyptus, a drapey succulent, and a couple of turning leafy branches in this mix.

▫️Select seasonal plants that add a variety of heights, textures, and colors to the mix. Keep the color palette tight and minimal. Play with texture for a modern aesthetic.

▫️Shape your arrangement to follow the lines of the planter if possible.

▫️Keep it natural, and keep it simple. Modern planters don’t need bows, lights, or themed baubles. That being said, if you love those things, go ahead and add your flare to create a planter arrangement that you love having around!

Hit me with your questions if you’re interested in creating a modern vibe with planters at your home but are not sure how to get started. Happy potting! 🧡

✨Before/After✨
When we moved into our home last year, this room was one of my least favorite (before). The wall to wall carpet, paint color, fan style, and brick stove surround were someone else’s style. So, we slowly started to transform the space to make it our own...and now it’s one of my favorite spots in the house to spend time! The wall to wall and brick surround didn’t change, but fresh paint, new furniture, some greenery, and an in-progress art installation complete the look. Aside from the meh photography, what do you think?

✨FINAL WEEK OF ODK COCKTAILS TO-GO✨
Sorry all, but this week is your last chance to enjoy a cocktail kit from @orangedoorktchn! We’ve had so much fun mixing drinks for you these past two months, but it’s time for a new adventure. Here’s what’s on the menu:

SPICED CARROT MARGARITA 🥕🌶 (savory + slightly smoky…a delicious seasonal twist on your go-to summer drink)

APPLE PIE A LA MODE 🍎🥧🍨 - featuring scoops from @westside_creamery - (decadent + nostalgic…what’s better with a slice of pie than a scoop of vanilla?)

KOZANI BEE’S KNEES 🍋 - featuring Kozani spice blend from @curiospice - (herbaceous + tart…a sophisticated update on this Prohibition era classic)

SEPTEMBER ON THE LINKS 🍇 (sweet + complex…with a hat tip to a traditional post-golf cocktail)

The kitchen elves were at @orangedoorktchn today making sure that the space is in tip top shape for our resident businesses to come cook on Monday. We cleaned the ovens, seasoned the stovetop burners, changed the range pans, washed the hood grates, cleaned out the walk-in, relabeled storage shelves, vacuumed, and did a thorough mopping. It means a lot to us to care for our shared kitchen, and we are proud stewards of our modest space. That’s why we never considered operating as a 24/7 kitchen...it is too important for us to give the space a rest and maintain it properly so that everyone who cooks at @orangedoorktchn feels great about the experience. 🧡

It’s BLT Week at the Powell house! 🍅🥓🥪

BLT Week became an annual tradition back when we were gardening at home, coinciding with the time of year when our heirloom tomato plants were kicking off fruit like nobody’s business. Today, our garden is dormant (we’ve been busy running a small biz), but BLT Week lives on. Sometime in late August, we get a hankering for this amazing sandwich and set out to find the freshest, juiciest, most flavorful local ingredients available to us. Some years we get a little fancy with additions of avocado or pesto, but this year, we kept things basic...and it’s perfect and delicious just the way the BLT was intended to be.

Inspired to run out and make your own yet? If you are, Happy BLT Week! Enjoy. 😋🧡😎

We swapped Aperol for Campari, Lustau Vermut Blanco for sweet vermouth, and added a hint of apricot liqueur to make us all blush. 🥰

I love the kitchen on a Monday morning. These days the weekends are big maintenance and cleaning days so things are as good as they get on Mondays. The floors are spotless, stainless polished, burners seasoned...it’s ready to get destroyed for 6 days straight and then we do it all again. #sharedkitchen #smallbizlife #possibilities

A puzzle swap would be fun. We just added a lovely new one to our collection. My wife tells me that she goes to Goodwill to drop stuff off, but I know it's really because she also finds things like this, which she discovered in February in the by-the-pound section. She paid maybe $3 for it, and boy did she get her money’s worth. No picture on the box, wood, semi-interlocking, loads of whimsies, color-line cut (!), a few pieces missing—one couldn't hope for a much better time sink while social distancing.
Surfing Goat Soaps will be at the Orange Door Kitchen on Saturday so come see what we've got! Farm made goat milk soap made in Massachusetts, using only essential oils and other natural ingredients. Cut bars and fanciful molds! Great gifts for your loved ones, or yourself. See you Saturday!
