I usually wait until I’m sure the last of the warmish days are gone to really embrace fall produce. It’s not that I don’t love apples, squash, parsnips, beets and other rooty things that store well, but I know I’ll burn out on them come February! I’ve done a good job of putting them off this year as it’s been quite warm and veggies like fennel, cauliflower, broccoli and collard greens are still relatively plentiful at the farmers’ markets. Despite the unseasonal warmth, I recently gave in and started cooking with the late fall goodies. Here are some photos of them in all their glory and some of the treats they get turned into.
I’ll also take this opportunity to announce that a selection of my stock food images, including this brussel sprouts image and the pie image below, are now available for licensing via StockFood. You can find my portfolio, which includes many images of food and dishes from my own garden and kitchen, here. Images will be added regularly. Come on, I know you’re in desperate need of a high-resolution photo of black radishes for your company’s annual report! Seriously though, knowing that someone somewhere may be able to make use of my food photos has been further incentive to keep making compelling images of the incredible local food we have available to us. I mean, really, how can you resist all this beauty? Buy local. Eat local.
