Alex Hitz- chef, designer, entertainer

Last weekend my husband and I went out of town. I brought a stack of magazines to go through- my travel indulgence.   The November issue of House Beautiful introduced me to Alex Hitz… southerner gone californian, talented chef AND designer AND avid entertainer- wow! How did I not know about this inspirational man of many talents?!  I could not get enough of this article on him. Below are my thoughts when I was looking at the spread on his home.  House for entertaining

If you get my drift, I was thinking love-love-love about most every detail of his design as I slowed down to absorb the photos. The southern influence shows in the table setting, also revealed through his design style- very handsome, a great mix of classic & contemporary, obviously someone who grew up around nice things. Boy does he have an eye for design.

With the holidays are rapidly approaching, the new Alex Hitz cookbook looks like a wonderful addition to any entertaining kitchen. I have already ordered mine. Classic southern cooking with a french twist sounds like heaven on earth, sign me up!

best cookbook ever

Next time I am in Los Angeles, I will have to check out Alex’s business, too- he is the go-to guy for A-lister entertaining food at Beverly Hills Kitchen. Where does he find the time to do so many things so well? My hero!

silver punch bowl

This punchbowl is more evidence of his southern upbringing- reminds me of New Orleans.  I love it that this stylish entertainer regularly uses his nice silver and crystal. Don’t you know  it would be fun to be a guest at his house.

So what do you think? Do you love his multi-talented style as much as I do? Do you plan to learn from his southern-french cookbook? What are you planning to cook for the holidays… Inspire us, Let us know~
