"...and I must say that maybe my personally favorite aspect of Ronica's dinner hosting is the wonderful mix of the formal and the casual: you eat a fine meal at a beautifully set table with candlelight and wine . . . and yet you're in someone's home, shoes off, chatting easily with people you just met. It's a superb idea, but Ronica also pulls it off with quiet grace, combining gold-rimmed plates and a bandana as though there were no other way to be. Love it. How lucky I feel to have been there."
