liner notes

Winter is in the air but not on the ground, yet it’s time to be tinkering with turkey again.

Rob Fiocca makes great food images; we also “break bread” at studio snack time in a glorious, real food style. You really do have to love food to make pictures of food that sing….and it makes us all very happy (and well fed) on set each day to share (and gently compete) for breakfast-making accolades.

It’s also warming to know that the Nook, my little cottage hideaway, will have guests soon, despite the hike and the cold. ¬†Lynn & Michael are returning with their dog Arthur, and promise to send me pictures to post in my Doggie Guestbook, “once processed”. They take photos with film; a nostalgia in this time of digital captures, and the catapults of techno must-do’s.

Now comfortably on the other side of a nasty computer crash (thanks to uber-neighbour Pat L for all the help !) , I am finally laptopping again…between photo shoots, leaf rakings, and recipe testings….hmmm baked beans). But that unplugged feeling remains close at hand; it makes me especially thankful to be online (and also off-line…but when I choose so).

But hey….Is anybody looking for a Winter getaway? My friend Stefano Barbera took the shot ( below) last New Years when snuggled in for a week with a friend. Are you possibly a writer looking for a place to spend some quiet time away from it all ? (Book early, and the turkey might also be included…winter picnic style).

Don’t forget to thank a farmer… and stay warm everybody.
