Fleur & Thyme: is something I created to encourage and provide others with ideas/recipes/direction on all things entertaining (highlighting one of my favorite things... cocktails). Hosting can be overwhelming, but hopefully with some helpful hints, you can be inspired and feel equipped to hold parties people will be talking about in years to come, and new friendships as evidence.

My Name is Raleigh Clemens.                                                                            I am a California Native, culturally influenced chef, lover of people, middle child, creative soul, adventure seeker and ultimate entertainer.

I decided at the age of 30, yes, I am 30 . . . that it was about time I document some of the things I love most. Those things involve entertaining friends and strangers, creating in the kitchen, ALL PLANTS, and the art of cocktails; all leading to shared memorable experiences.
