Fresh Veggies for Diabetes Forecast

Until we received the manuscript for this story I didn’t know what “celeriac” was. Honestly, I would have guessed it as some kind of food allergy disease. Turns out it’s a diabetic friendly root super veggie. I love learning new things.

Here are a couple of spreads we shot for this Healthy Harvest feature. We’re fortunate to have a nice bit of flexibility with this client…and always appreciate the opportunity to dig deep into our prop room to pull out surfaces with texture.

Chef Trey Cioccia – The Farm House

I think there must be a little bit of Will Rogers in me ’cause I never met a “chef” I didn’t like. Trey is no exception. We had fun with him in the studio…particularly when he showed us how he grows fresh sprouts. I won’t spill the beans on his secret but I’ll let ya know you already have what you need to do it in your own home. It literally was surprising.

Here he is, and here’s his “arugula, chicken liver, biscuit, boiled peanut, bacon vin” dish. There’s certainly good stuff to be had at The Farm House in Nashville—I witnessed it in person.

What fun it is to work with a smart entrepreneur—even more fun working with a smart entrepreneur with fantastic burger skills. That’s Dallas Shaw and he’s behing Hoss Loaded Burgers here in Nashville. We spent a fun day with Dallas and his burger making skills to capture a few of his featured creations. Here are some of the results from out shoot.

Nice Thai

I’m not really sure how my brain works, and I’m not sure I’d be up for getting a professional diagnosis either—I’m content being nuts. I’ve been having fun with my boys as we play with words. At least I’m having fun…my boys probably consider it abuse…or dare I say, pun-ishment. I enjoy pointing out the contrast between what we hear and what we mean.

I was struck with this idea of “tie” food a while back and below is how it finally manifested itself.

Chef Keith West’s Bao Bun Slider from Gray’s On Main

There’s an old drug store on Main Street in Franklin that has been converted to a wonderful restaurant. That’s Chef Keith West’s domain. He came to the studio for a short visit to allow us to shoot (and taste…but don’t tell anyone) his Bao Bun Pulled Pork Sliders.
