Wreath of the Day – The Importance of Holly

We love to use holly on outdoor wreaths (it dries out too quickly to use indoors) but many years our holly supplies are meager.  Some holly bushes produce berries prolifically every other year, some years available holly bushes have been pruned at an inopportune time for our purposes, and some years our members with available holly have simply not been home at wreath time.  When a member who lives in Maine arrived on Thursday of wreath week with a bag of splendid holly, the decorators pounced.  She arrived around lunch time, and by the time most of us had grabbed a sandwich, the holly was gone – used beautifully in wreaths such as the one below.

Matt Landry Named as Executive Chef at Tower Hill Botanic Garden

As a champion of locally-sourced food, Matt Landry is an ideal fit as the new executive chef of Tower Hill Botanic Garden’s restaurant. Landry’s determination to provision his kitchen with produce from local farms – and even from Tower Hill’s own vegetable gardens – dovetails with the organization’s longtime commitment to horticulture and to Worcester County. Now, after a month on the job, Landry is welcoming new and returning patrons to sample his new menus in the re-energized Twigs Café overlooking the Wachusett Reservoir in Boylston.  Landry, a Johnson & Wales culinary arts graduate, began his professional career with the Ritz Carlton in Boston and at Henrietta’s Table in Cambridge before opening Chloé, an American bistro in Hudson, Mass. During his decade as the chef-owner of Chloé, the popular restaurant often received rave reviews.
