In celebration of citrus season, I give you the image above which was taken for a Whole Foods Market Cooking shoot. Does anyone have a nice recipe for a citrus marmalade? Speaking of citrus did you guys see the beautiful post from Aran? She is in the heart of it, so jealous. I am going to attempt homemade english muffins and what better then a citrus marmalade to go with.
In part of my new years resolution I mentioned I wanted to try and make more from scratch and buy less things packaged. Which I already do very little of, I guess I should clarify that a little. Making my own breads is a challenge I am looking into. The only thing I bought canned was beans and that was mainly because I decided what I want to eat the day of. Being better about having beans soaked and even freezing them in big batches is something I am going to start doing. While I cant make my own milk, I can make some cheeses and butter. I would love to try making fresh mozzarella, ricotta and other fresh cheeses. If you have any great recipes you would like to share I'm all ears. I've wanted to make my own preserves for ages, but space and storage is a problem. Also pickling which I intend to explore in the Summer months. Soon enough it will be ramp season! This month is already flying by. I few things I forgot to mention.
If you have the latest copy of W magazine, I have a little photo that I took for Maialino on page 20. I'll take it :) You can also see it online here.
I also had a nice intervew where I share my insights on photography with Digital Photographer.
