Color A La Carte

Lovely in layers

From a subtle hint of cardamom in a pasta sauce to a bold dollop of foie gras atop a powder ed doughnut, a chef ’s greatest achievement – and a diner’s greatest pleasure – is harmony amongst flavors. A good chef knows how to layer tastes to make a dish pop, and your inner Anna Wintour can do the same. So as temperatures chill, seek out some new layers of your own: vests, blazers, overcoats, and even overskirts are all rich ingredients to add flavor to your winter wardrobe.
