Setting the Table with Amber Mayfield, founder of While Entertaining

Founder of bespoke event brand To Be Hosted and independent lifestyle magazine While Entertaining, Amber Mayfield. Amber is a consummate tastemaker and is shaping how Black folks celebrate and entertain now and in the future. To Be Hosted has produced events and experiences for brands like Equinox, Facebook, Nestle, Netflix, Bumble, Tinder, Patron Tequila, Bulleit  Bourbon, Bain & Company, and more. To learn more, check out www.tobehosted.com. Founded in March 2020, While Entertaining Magazine is a yearly magazine that highlights Black food and beverage experts, and provides resources for people cooking and gathering at home. Amber began her work when she was twenty-three years old. She had worked in television as a corporate assistant and noticed is that events and productions utilized the same resources—caterers, lighting technicians, designers, and artists, and none of them looked like her.  What started as a self-funded side hustle grew into creating custom events that used the talents of Black creatives and Black professionals— her gorgeous work offered an intimate and safe experience for Black people to dine. “I'm sure all of us, especially in New York, has no shortage of stories, of feeling comfortable in certain spaces and not feeling like that fine dining experience of that luxury experience or whatever, wherever you want to go and feel like somebody is specifically catering to and thinking about you.” --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/afrosandknivespod/message ...
