Hello, friends! Here’s a selection of images from Samin Nosrat’s most recent Tartine Afterhours. If you’d like to see some front of house images, you can take a gander at a few from a dinner I attended last year. This time around, I hid out in the kitchen most of the evening. It was SO FUN. And inspiring. I’m amazed by the stamina of people who spend their evenings in kitchens. It’s hard work. Thanks for letting me hang out, Samin!

  • Holly Bingham - Wow!Everything looks great, but I especially like the potential of the tart.. Is that spinach?ReplyCancel

  • Kimberley - @susan! Not a secret at all – I use a Canon 5d Mark ii and mostly the 24-70/2.8 lens.
    @Holly: That tart is called a torta pasqualina! Samin talks about it a little more on her website if you follow the Tartine Afterhours link. And yes, spinach!ReplyCancel
