Embrace Quiet Luxury with these 8 Lush Recipes

The fashion industry is tapping into quiet luxury, a new-age, minimalistic approach to fashion that focuses on quality materials and thoughtful purchases that are considered more of an investment rather than fast fashion.

We’ve given some thought to this concept and think it can undoubtedly translate into the food and beverage world as well. By way of a similar approach, recipes with fewer ingredients, simple preparations, time-honored tastes, and flavors with a nostalgic feel of splendor can also find their way into this trend of quiet luxury.

Deviled Eggs with Caviar

The best part of this dish is that the combination of eggs and caviar brings the best out of both flavor profiles, allowing them to shine in their own right and as a team.

Seafood Broil for Two

When it comes to seafood, it’s best enjoyed simply, as in a seafood broil for two. No muss, no fuss… but a big, tasty payoff when you sit down to enjoy it with someone special.

Nasturtium Pesto

We truly enjoy traditional basil pesto, but we’re elevating the classic recipe to new, summery heights with our Nasturtium Pesto recipe. Did we hear someone say that pesto does not need any improvements? This is quite probably true, but don’t ignore the flavorful possibilities presented by naturally peppery nasturtium leaves.

Lemon Basil Posset

Lemon Basil Posset is the smooth and creamy, tangy, and oh-so-delightful dessert you didn’t know you needed. One might expect something so luxurious to require extraordinary preparation. But quite the opposite is true of this traditional English dessert.

Brown Butter Crab Toast

There is no better way to enjoy colossal crab than with brown butter on some crispy French bread. The textures and flavor combine to create a quiet, luxurious moment worth savoring. Impress your guests with this, or just have it all to yourself.
