truefood Last month I worked with Wagstaff Worldwide photographing the opening of two new True Food Kitchen restaurants in Palo Alto and Walnut Creek. The healthy food chain is owned by Fox Restaurant Concepts in partnership with Dr. Andrew Weil and has healthy, interesting food that I loved. I’m hoping they’ll come to San Francisco soon.

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.

I love to photo cocktails (and drink them) and I’ve been lately I’ve been doing both for Oakland Magazine’s cocktail column. In every issue the writer finds a delicious drink and gets the recipe from the bartender. I also photo cocktails for Oakland Magazine restaurant reviews too. Between the two, I thought I’d share some favorites…

Of all the cocktails photographed here my favorite was the Pimm’s Cup. It’s made from Pimm’s No. 1, a spirit from Great Britain. You can get a recipe from  www.foodandwine.com, but it’s so dangerously easy  why even bother. Just mix Pimm’s with ginger ale or lemon-lime soda one to one. Add fruit— apples, oranges, cucumber, mint and ice and you’ve got a great way to end the day. Or, for the best version, stop by East End Restaurant and Bar in Alameda.

Check out the recipe for the Featherweight from Oakland Magazine here. It’s perfect for a summer evening.

20140630_0003I worked for the San Francisco Chronicle for the first time earlier this month photographing Chef Stephen Barber of Farmstead in St Helena. Barber, who has loved barbecue since he was a boy, shares his tips an a recipe for a spicy rib rub here. YUM! BBQ

Here’s a fun job I did recently for Marin Magazine–one of my favorite subjects–cocktails! I was really excited to see a shot picked for the cover and then a of couple of months later a food cover too. Thank you Marin Magazine!
