wish i were (still) there, #3


I'm heading to Spain this week for one of my favorite clients, Virtuoso Life. These two pictures are from my first assignment for them, in the Burgundy region of France. I spent a week on a canal barge, photographing the landscape, food, wineries, and the small local villages. This upcoming trip will be wine-related as well, and I'll be traveling with the writer Jeff Koehler, the author of a wonderful cookbook on paella. Jeff and I met while working together on a story about Barcelona, where he lives with his wife and kids. I can't cook to save my life, but returned from Burgundy with a recipe for gougere (above), a puffy French cheese pastry. Early attempts with Marilu failed to capture the fluffiness (they were more like petite French rocks), but we've since made some great batches.
