The Year In Food » Fine Seasonal Eating

Masthead header


I was delighted to shoot Bon Appetit Food Lover’s Cleanse for a second year this December. (This year with the tremendous help of Stacy Ladenburger – thank you!) The two-week menu plan is fantastic. It’s creative, vibrant, wholesome, interesting and produce-centric with some meat and fish – kind of how I like to eat all year, which is probably why it resonates with me and why I love the project so much. It starts tomorrow! Even if you don’t intend to follow along faithfully, there’s a wealth of inspiration for eating well in the new year. It’s a gem.

Happy New Year, gang!

Here are just a few of my favorites:

White Bean Chili with Winter Vegetables

Tunisian Style Poached Eggs and Chickpeas with Leeks, Spinach and Smoked Paprika

Butternut Squash Tomato Soup with Avocado Radicchio Salad
