THE COLOR STUDIES: UNEXPECTED PINK

Something about pink right about now, on the cusp of spring, feels so exuberant, optimistic, and so much a celebration of the season before us. I love how it creeps into the most unsuspecting of produce: we never call those potatoes pink, but they’ve got an undeniable magenta hue. Same goes for those gorgeous Japanese sweet potatoes. Quiet magenta streaks. And radishes! Radishes own pink.

I really think pink is one of my favorite colors in food. It’s not one you would expect that often but looking at those radishes- it’s gorgeous!

It’s still winter, but the colors are there, if we only look for them. I’m loving the color studies, they always make me smile and appreciate the beauty of nature! Thanks for that, Kimberley!
