Starting from Scraps…

I was recently given the wonderful opportunity to write, cook, style and photograph my own story about leftovers for Dining. It appeared in yesterday’s New York Times. Although this is what I do here in this space all the time the magnitude of seeing it in print on the cover yesterday and the reception and congratulations I received from friends and colleagues was amazing. It was quite a different experience to see both my photo byline on top of my writing byline in such a prominent space. It’s nice when an old dog can do a few new tricks once in a while. Thanks for reading and thanks for all of the kind words.

  2. Andrew, great article and it got me inspired to do a “leftover challenge” with my readers to see what everyone can come up with over the next week. Congratulations and thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Wow. Congrats! I have to admit I saw the phyllo–one of those ingredients I always struggle with–and didn’t read it but I’ll definitely read it now!

  5. I love the musician metaphor, thanks for the inspiration! I hope you return to Seattle soon.
