Beth and I had never worked on a project of this scope before. I art directed and designed the cookbook, Beth shot all the photography and we worked together styling all the food. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity for everyone involved. We were all so proud to share our favorite dishes. A bonus about working on a cookbook? You get to taste everything!
The following photos are some of my favorites from the book.
Mira's Summer Salad » recipe by Mira Mdivani
This is the perfect time of year for this salad
and like Mira likes to say, serve it with
"some good bread."
Calamari Salad » recipe by Marwan Chebaro
Shrimp Kebabs with Pineapple Fried Rice
» recipe by Simran and Michael Nutter
Beef & Guinness Stew » recipe by George Vial
Not only does he provide recipes and cook
yummy food, George also came up with
the title of the cookbook!
Brigadeiros » recipe by Monica Mingucci
Fondant au Chocolat » recipe by Laurent and Kathy Denis
Laurent and Kathy publish
