Meet Christine Martin Founder and Hostess in Chief

Designing and entertaining at home have been my way of life since I hosted my first Easter brunch at age 7. 

I am fortunate that my career in International Business allowed me to travel enjoying global cuisines, fine wines and international style.

Always in search of local foods and styles of cooking them, I made a hobby out of tasting the signature dishes of the area’s top chefs.  I would also inquire about the home décor styles for entertaining, as well as the best wines to pair with each dish.  Upon my return, I would host a dinner party where my friends and I would recreate the authentic regional cuisines, wine and stylish table top designs I experienced during my travels.

A seat at my dining table became the most sought after reservation in town whether I was living on Washington’s elegant Embassy Row, London’s posh Butlers Wharf and San Francisco’s stylish Nob Hill pied-a-terre. 

To help you enjoy this lifestyle, I designed my line of award-winning Dinner Party Kits to sharpen your culinary and wine pairing skills and polish your entertaining techniques at home.
