Merry Christmas from all of us at UtHC

Our little family at Under the High Chair would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas!

A warm and sincere thank you to all my readers for being there and for following this random expression of myself that I call Under the High Chair. I enjoy every minute of blogging, but it is all of you that make it truly meaningful and worthwhile.

With our family holiday photo this year we give homage to the now defunct Gourmet Magazine. For over sixty years it was the finest magazine in its niche and we took the liberty of creating the cover that could-have-been for December’s issue that sadly never was...

Huge thanks and props to our friends, the very talented Tim & Angela Chin of, who ran with my idea for our Christmas card and created this vintage Gourmet moment. Isn’t it precious?!

Happy Holidays!!!

Aimée, Danny, Noah & Mateo
