To celebrate the harvest flower shop owner, Martin Reinicke, hosts an annual gathering at his country home north of Copenhagen. Together with the help of his friend, photographer and food stylist, Tina Brok Hansen, the pair put together a Moroccan harvest dinner for twenty friends. ”Autumn is my favourite time of year and we wanted to create a meal with lots of veggies“ Tina shares. The day before the event, Tina and Martin headed up north to prep the garden where guests would have dinner and to get a head start on all the chopping for the seven family style dishes they would serve. Since the weather was conducive to dine outdoors, they decorated Martin’s long, wooden table for 20 made by a local carpenter and used all sorts of left over flowers from his shop. Down the center of the table they added a row of small apples from the apple tree in the garden. Tina and Martin created a cozy, rustic setting as the backdrop for a lively evening of music, good food and a relaxing respite away from the city.
