Holiday Gifting at the Farmer’s Market

Every Saturday morning, when my schedule permits, I’m a regular at the Santa Fe Farmer’s market. Usually, it’s for what I call “supplies” – whatever is fresh, eye catching, and fits my recipe plans. The added bonus that I’ve photographed many of the farmers on their beautiful farms, and it’s a chance to catch up […]

Radical Homemakers Harvest Swap

My friend Erin O’Neill and her colorful posse of gardeners proudly wear and promote their roles as homemakers – albeit of the radical persuasion – with such wholesome yet radical ideas as trading the bounty of their produce amongst each other, creating a barter economy outside the whole cash-capital-tax paradigm. For the third year in […]

Cheesemongers of Santa Fe

One of the trade-offs of living in a relatively small town is access to the proliferation of choice and ingredients available in the big cities. Lately, the culinary horizons of Santa Fe seems to be expanding, first with the Real Butcher Shop, and now, with its very own dedicated cheese shop, the Cheesemongers of Santa […]

Hunting the Elusive Porcini

For years, I’ve been wanting some insight into the mysterious undertaking known as “mushroom hunting”. There is fungi subterfuge and vows of secrecy – true devotees protect their favorite hunting grounds with territorial discretion. I was thrilled to discover my friend Erin O’Neill is a “Bole” aficionado, and thanks to a gloriously monsoonish summer, the […]

Gruet Winery of Albuquerque

As a New Mexican transplant, I have a pretty fierce pride about what happens here. Sure – you’d hardly blink an eye at the idea of an award winning winnery in Northern California. But New Mexico? Seriously – I still field this question when I call customer support for various products: “…New Mexico? That’s in […]

Interview about Smoke and Spice

In July, Wonderful Machine interviewed me on their blog about the Smoke and Spice cookbook. It’s always an interesting exercise to consider questions – I always find myself surprised at the new perspectives I find answering a question, describing an experience I thought I already knew quite well. Somehow, in the act of answering, new […]

Smoke and Spice

I think every photographer secretly hopes to have a book of their work at some point in their career. Thanks to well known New Mexican cookbook authors Cheryl and Bill Jamison, I had my first opportunity last year, creating all of the recipe, atmospheric and cover images for the 20th Anniversary edition of their James […]

Duke City: A Layover Primer

When I have clients coming into Albuquerque for a project, I like to share a little local flavor during the brief time they usually have before/after a project for a little speed-style exploring. I have a list of things to eat and do, which goes a little something like this: (disclaimer – I’m no tourist […]
