A BIG NIGHT of Conversation & Celebration with Katherine Lewin and Alisha Ramos for a cookbook release including beverages and bites
Join Bold Fork Books, Katherine Lewin, and Alisha Ramos for a Celebration of BIG NIGHT: DINNER, PARTIES, & DINNER PARTIES. We'll gather, chat, and enjoy beverages and bites from the book by our neighbors Each Peach Market.


When Katherine Lewin opened up her first store—a dinner party shop—she had one goal: to help everyone make their meals at home feel a little bit more special. A little bit more joyful. A little bit Bigger. In her debut book, Katherine channels her New York City–based brick-and-mortar’s irresistible energy into a treasure trove of tips, tricks, and hosting essentials for every kind of Big Night. Learn how to Stop Worrying About Everything Matching and Just Set the Table; the step-by-step formula for discovering your (and your guests’) Perfect Martini; and the Cheese Plate of Dreams math of how many ounces to plan per person.

On top of these helpful sidebars—and in addition to more than 80 recipes for snacks, apps, mains, desserts, and cocktails—you’ll find full menus for 12 Bigger Nights to take you through every occasion, all year long. From date night for two to pull-out-all-the-stops dinner parties to low-key weeknight hangs, this hosting cookbook will help you find all the inspiration you need—and confidence you want—to make any and every night a Big Night.


Before she became the founder and CEO of Big Night, Katherine Lewin was a food writer and editor. She worked at The Infatuation for almost six years. She fell in love with New York City through its restaurants, eating incredible meals in packed dining rooms where it felt like anything could happen. The more time she spent in restaurants, the more she wanted to learn how to make her own dinner magic—the kind that comes from feeding people you love, and new friends, too.

Alisha Ramos is a content and creative consultant living just outside Washington, D.C. She writes Downtime, a bestselling lifestyle newsletter on Substack with over 130,000 subscribers. Previously, she founded Girls' Night In, an award-winning media brand. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, Vogue, Good Morning America, and New York Magazine.


Each Peach Market was founded in 2013 by Jeanlouise and Emily, two friends who met in Washington DC. Each Peach was born to help our community discover amazing food and inspire the DIY culinary spirit, creating an approachable and warm shopping experience that highlights fresh, high quality, and local products.
