Karrin Allyson Yuletide Hideaway

karrin

Sass and Class Vocal Jazz

Four-time Grammy nominee, singer/pianist Karrin Allyson, released the sophisticated ‘Yuletide Hideaway’ in 2013. The 13-song album, available via hard copy and digitally on www.karrin.com , is a combination of original Holiday songs and Christmas standards, and features Allyson’s trademark elegant, dreamy vocals. From ‘Let It Snow’ and ‘Winter Wonderland’ to Allyson’s stunning original title track and more, the album is at times playful, introspective, spirited – a timeless classic-in-the-making — as Allyson’s understated sophistication suggests a cozy, contemplative December evening by the fireplace, perhaps alone, perhaps with loved ones by our side.

Allyson comments: This is a wonderful collection of old and new material including some originals from Chris Caswell and myself, and featuring Chris on Hammond B-3, the great Lee Sklar on bass, as well as my beautiful colleagues Rod Fleeman, Todd Strait, and Gerald Spaits. It’s just in time to give friends and family for their holiday season listening pleasure!

With Love, Karrin

POP-UP BAKERY BY DAKOTA PASTRY CHEF KATIE ELSING

It all started with Dakota Pastry Chef Katie Elsing and a trip to New York for the 2014 chef’s congress. Inspired by meetings with pastry guru Dominique Ansel and others, Elsing’s long time dream became something she couldn’t put off any longer and the TKC Bakery was born.

Hosted at the Dakota, Elsing’s Pop-Up Bakery will highlight smaller bite size versions of her most popular desserts along with seasonal concoctions and sweet and savory pastries.

Track the bakery’s upcoming Pop-Ups, menus and news @DakotaFoodie on Twitter #TheKatieChronicles and on Facebook.
