1 Week to Go…creativeLIVE

So, a week from today my FREE creativeLIVE workshop will begin. Still time to enroll. One of the things I’ll discuss is the use of the diptych, like this one for this apple, fennel and endive salad by Martha Rose Shulman.

What is Dukkah?

What is Dukkah?

Maybe I missed something over the past ten years but I had to ask myself that question when I got this assignment. It turns out that since the publication of the Jerusalem Cookbook these spice mixtures are really making their way into the mainstream. This week’s Recipes for Health focuses on dukkah used in salads, as a fish dredge, for crudite as a dip and as a topping for poached eggs. It is quite delicious. Pictured here is the peanut dukkah. Give it a try.

The Burger Ideal…

_C5A6571Creating a memorable burger shot is one of the more challenging in food photography simply because it’s like trying to improve upon what has already been perfected. The burger shot is the iconic food image that everyone is familiar with and in a lot of ways emotionally connected to. Last week, I had the chance to shoot these two as part of the latest Recipe for Health images. I always joke that I am chasing the Holy Grail of food photography and I’m anxious waiting for my chance to put my spin on that iconic burger picture.  I feel like I am getting a little closer with these two shots. Closer to that burger ideal.

Pear Sorbet RFH…


This image represents exactly the things that I try to do with that “painterly style” that has been attributed to my work. As soon as I shot my first frame I was so excited to have this published. It is one of my favorites. This is from Martha’s Recipes for Health about fruit desserts running this week in the New York Times.

FFT Retirement…

ImageI think it has come time to retire the Food For Thought “Gratuitous Food Porn” Series. It has come to my attention that these would be much more helpful if I included more information about the origin of the images…what’s the recipe….who is the author….what was the assignment….and provide links to the stories they are associated with. So…this is what I will be doing. I will title the images appropriately and embed links. Enjoy.

This first one is a Celery Minestrone Soup from the NYT Health Section Recipes for Health by Martha Rose Shulman.
