Caftans and ballet flats weren’t the only goods on hand at Tory Burch’s Meatpacking District store on Thursday night, where the designer hosted a cocktail party to fete “Delicious Flavors,” a new cookbook by Palm Beach social Victoria Armory. An Upper East Side crowd that included Marina Rust, Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn and Jamee Gregory came to snag a copy of the tome, which features Spanish-inspired dishes like tomato and plum gazpacho and salsa Espanola.
The party’s timing couldn’t have been better for Burch, who admitted, “I’m not a big cook, but I hope to be a bigger one.”
Meanwhile, the same could not be said of the fete’s surprise guest–the grande dame of recipes herself–Martha Stewart, who made a drive by appearance before Burch even arrived.
“She took a copy of my book and my phone number,” said an elated Armory of the mogul. “So we will see what happens.”
