Kate Williams would like to invite you to her dinner party. Except by “party” she means an average night of service at her restaurant, Lady of the House. The Detroit spot opened in September to high praise for its nose-to-tail dishes, but Williams insists its success comes down to the personal touches and homey treatment of ingredients. Here, she shares a recipe for salmon crudo, a sophisticated raw seafood dish that she’s made accessible enough to recreate for your own intimate get-together.
