I like to help launch small businesses and  Tia Maka’s Tamales was a fun project. Sandra Jimenez has always made tamales for friends and wanted to start a new business. I helped her with photography by emphasizing the homemade quality of her food, the ingredients, the sauces and the deliciousness. I’d like one now, please.

Peerless Coffee is one of Oakland’s oldest coffee roasting company, a family run business started by John Vukasin in 1920. Besides making incredible coffee, the company has a collection of museum quality coffee artifacts, many still in use. It’s always interesting to have authentic artisan elements to work with and to see one of the photos made into a modern poster is pretty cool too!

SierraCover_20150212_0034Sierra Magazine featured four urban farmers from my book Backyard Roots for their annual Food issue! Above, Jonathan Chen,  became the director of the Danny Woo Community Garden in Seattle after surviving cancer as a college student. He worked with immigrants in the terraced downtown garden and introduced a kids program and chickens. Other urban farmers included Alex Winstead, an organic mushroom farmer who began his career as a hobby growing mushrooms in his basement, Rachel Hoff and Tom Ferguson who lived for a year without setting foot in a grocery store and Lee Kindell who introduced kids to aquaponics at his downtown hostel. Check it out at the sierra club.org.
