Japanese Harper’s Bazaar | Kerry Diamond

There’s not a woman in the food world who isn’t currently obsessed with Cherry Bombe, myself included. It was of course my pleasure then, to photograph co-founder Kerry Diamond, at home, for Japanese Harper’s Bazaar. Kerry is very down to earth and so is her food. We hung out over fried chicken, cornbread, and my new favorite raw green salad: collard and roasted peanut.

Country Living | Louisville Kitchen

Just a quick little post to share my latest cover. My favorite room in the house has always been the kitchen, and I love me some patterned cement tiles, so there was a little bit of envy here! Though we missed the derby by a week, we had a great time in Louisville shooting and drinking bourbon. Looking forward to going back some time soon.

MY ICELANDIC ROAD TRIP

You might’ve noticed on my Instagram feed that I took a road trip through Iceland with my good friend Martha. For over ten years I’ve wanted to visit this magical landscape with my camera. The island is every bit as breathtaking as everyone has told me and Martha and I made some awesome discoveries from hot springs to ice cream. (Captions and info below the images)

Mast Brothers | Telegraph Magazine

Brooklyn’s favorite chocolate makers, the Mast Brothers, have opened a shop in London. So, I recently spent the day in the brothers’ Williamsburg store for the Telegraph, shooting portraits, interior details, and food, while Rick cracked jokes and Michael got my assistant and I hopped up on chocolate. Pretty great day. The cube-shaped chocolates I mention (pictured below) are relatively new to their shop and come in flavors like Toasted Milk, Maple Cream, and Olive Oil. Yeah, they’re special.

PARENTS MAGAZINE | FOURTH OF JULY

I think it is safe to say that summer has finally arrived in the Northeast (strawberries are a sure sign!) Having had such a late start though, it’s hard to believe that The Fourth of July is just around the corner. Last summer, Parents threw quite the picnic in Prospect Park to give their readers some creative ideas on how to celebrate the holiday. I photographed this beautiful production with the cutest bunch of models and a stellar and almost completely female crew, and I’m beyond excited for it to finally hit the stands! Happy picnic season, everyone! (Prop styling by Sarah Cave, food styling by Adrienne Anderson.)

DELICIOUS MAGAZINE

I’ve got new work out in Australian magazine, Delicious, that features trending food and drink spots in NYC. This eating adventure took us through Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens as I captured everything from bagels with lox piled high, to family style Korean BBQ, to locally sourced American fare. We tried some new things, met our neighbors, and even caught a glimpse of Steve Buscemi on the High Line. The chicken wings from Mission Cantina were a personal favorite–I’ll be back for more very soon.

SPRING COCKTAIL RECIPES + A NEW PRINT PROMO

Over the next couple days, everyone should be starting to receive my latest print promo in the mail! I’m really excited and will share more of the actual promo soon. Part of the fun of it is a little call out for some super refreshing cocktails recipes I created with food stylist Hadas Smirnoff. I’m posting them on my Instagram and wanted to share them here as well. This is the hero image of the poster, and it’s followed by the recipes:

NORTHSIDE ROOFTOP

Makes 1 cocktail

For the Rhubarb Syrup:

8 stalks rhubarb, trimmed and cut into 1/4-inch pieces (about 6 cups)

1 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups water

In a medium saucepan, combine rhubarb, sugar, and water. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until rhubarb breaks down completely, and the liquid has thickened slightly and become bright pink. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve, pressing rhubarb with a wooden spoon to extract all of the liquid, and let cool. Pour syrup into a clean glass bottle and refrigerate until ready to use. (Save cooked rhubarb to stir into your morning yogurt!) Makes about 16 ounces of syrup.

For the Cocktail:

1/2 ounce elderflower liqueur

3 ounces rhubarb syrup

3 ounces sparkling rosé, chilled

In a glass filled half way with crushed with ice, combine elderflower liqueur and rhubarb syrup. Top with sparkling rosé, gently stir. Garnish with a thin slice of rhubarb.

Strain through a fine-mesh sieve, gently pressing cherries to extract as much liquid as possible, and let cool. Reserve and refrigerate cherry halves. Pour syrup into a clean glass bottle and refrigerate until ready to use. Makes about 12 ounces of syrup.

For the Cocktail:

1 1/2 ounces gin

2 ounces cherry syrup

1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice

PARENTS MAGAZINE: BUSY MORNING BREAKFASTS

New work is out in Parents, encouraging healthy breakfasts that are also quick and great for weekdays. The best part is that they’re completely adult-friendly too! I’ll be trying the quinoa cereal and ricotta & strawberry toast (gluten-free, of course) this weekend.

ICEBOX CAKES BOOK FOR CHRONICLE

Icebox_case_mech.indd

Jean Sagendorph and Jessie Sheehan’s Icebox Cakes book, published by Chronicle is out in stores! I worked with the very talented and lovely Chelsea Zimmer and former photo editor turned prop stylist Casey Oto on this sweet project. The cover makes me totally ready for summer roof parties with friends. Something about glass baking dishes takes me back to outdoor family parties and the simple desserts one can create in them.
