Entertaining With

Rui Nakata

June 27th, 2017

We’ve been major fan girls of Rui Nakata’s food-filled Instagram feed for a while, so when we realized she lives right down the street from us in Austin, we knew we had to snag a seat at one of her famous backyard dinner parties. Rui and her fiancé Anthony share a love for garden-to-table cooking (they grow their own veggies), original craft cocktail recipes, and the ease of backyard entertaining. They also boast some handy woodworking skills; together they built that gorgeous wooden table that takes center stage at today’s party! Scroll through the gallery for Rui’s savory menu and her secret to hosting your own stress-free gathering this summer.
