DAVINCI WINE // BLUEBERRY HAND PIES

By choosing to click and read this blog post, you confirm you are of legal drinking age in the country where this site is accessed.
I love mixing high with low, fancy with rustic, refined with rough -- that's what led me to thinking about pairing a beautiful glass of DaVinci Chianti with a humble, homemade hand pie, full of jam, fresh end-of-season blueberries and a splash of the wine too, all enclosed in an easy, puff pastry crust. Salute!

THE KITCHN COOKBOOK IS OUT NOW!

About a year and a half ago, I embarked on a huge project -- the images for The Kitchn Cookbook. This is not just a collection of 150 recipes, it includes 10 kitchen tours shot around the country, cooking skills, equipment must-haves, meditations on food and much more. It's a powerhouse of information -- written by Sara Kate Gillingham and Faith Durand. More photos, out-takes and news after the jump.

SALT & STRAW LA CLASSIC FLAVORS

This new flavor is Black Olive Brittle & Goat Cheese
A few weeks ago, I shot another round of images for my favorite ice cream company, Salt & Straw. The big news is that this little Portland company that blew everyone's minds just got closer to us Californians . . .  they're opening a shop down here, in Los Angeles (I'll show you those pictures soon, the shop is adorable)! Tyler, Kim and the gang will be sourcing local produce and edibles to create Southern California flavors, reflecting the tastes and artisans who make this part of the world so delicious.
