The Annual goop
This year, we decided to shake things up a little bit, and organize our annual gift guide by category—after all, it’s pretty easy to identify people by a love of entertaining, art, or, well, if you’re like everyone at goop, their deep and abiding affection for jewelry. We also went straight to the source for our kid picks, who arguably out-sophisticated us. We tried to keep as much as possible at the $100 mark, though there are some splurges on here for your nearest and dearest. Plus, a girl can always dream.
This menu was as fun to come up with as it is to eat. They say oysters are an aphrodisiac but as shucking a raw one can be lethal, I steam mine just until they open and I can easily pry off the shell. They are easy to prepare...
Not only is Valerie Aikman-Smith one of our favorite food stylists over at goop HQ, but she’s also a masterful cook, particularly when it comes to the small and simple flourishes that cement a meal in your mind as superlative.
