Diana Yen is the multidisciplinary mastermind behind Jewels Of New York, a collective of cooks and artists that cater, style food, consult on recipes, and work with everyone from Martha Stewart to, well, west elm. Read on for Diana’s answers to our holiday food questions…
What’s your favorite dish to bring to a Holiday potluck?
My favorite dish to bring to a potluck is a sweet potato mash topped with caramelized apples. It a crossover of two things I love, mashed potatoes and an apple galette. It’s definitely a step up from the classic sweet mash covered in marshmallows. The sweet caramelized apples go really well with a slice of turkey!
Sweet Potatoes vs. Mashed Potatoes?
I love sweet potatoes! I think they go really well with savory proteins and they are a lighter dish than mashed potatoes.
Favorite weird Holidays leftover meal?
Turkey sandwiches with all the leftover sides piled on top and finished with gravy! I love eating cold turkey straight out of the fridge the next morning, too.
What’s another blog that inspires your food POV?
What Katie Ate. I love her sensibility.
