HAPPY SPRING IN NORTHERN MICHIGAN

On Easter this year I headed up to Northport to visit Idyll Farms with my friend Carla and her kids.  Cats were roaming the farm, chickens approached us with a curious interest and we were even allowed to pet a very new baby goat.  On the drive back to Traverse, the ice was leaving the bay and everything was starting to turn just a touch greener.  That evening Mike and I enjoyed an amazing happy hour spread including prosciutto, triple cream brie and dried cherries.  Now a few weeks have past and there is even more sun.  Yes, Spring has sprung and we are looking forward to everything this new season has in store.  Enjoy your Sunday folks!

 
 

EDIBLE /// SPRING 2013 /// COVER PHOTO

I am so excited to officially post my first cover!  I have already posted this on facebook and instagram, but a couple shots need to make it to the blog as well.  I have more work inside the magazine, which you can check out here.  Iphone and Ipad apps are now available for Edible as well.  Additional dairy farming work is in my portfolio here.  And, special thanks to Gibson Thomas of Edible and Valley Ford Cheese Company!

LUCKY HAND & MISSION CHEESE

Mission Cheese recently opened at 736 Valencia St. in San Francisco, offering cheese flights, sandwiches, and of course mac n' cheese!  Lucky Hand's Cali Common and Black Lager were featured during beer week.  Each beer was paired with it's own cheese flight and a sandwich.  For example, Cali Common was paired with the "California Gold" sandwich: San Joaquin Gold, chevre, prosciutto and fig preserves.  Delicious.
