Have you been wanting to learn more about Idaho’s Bounty Co-op ?

Jamón ibérico, Iberian ham, also called pata negra, is a type of cured ham produced only in Spain. I was introduced to this cured ham which sells for $270/pound when I was hired to photograph it at Cristina’s Restaurant in Sun Valley, Idaho. I usually don’t fuss with the food that I photograph very much. I like to capture the beauty that naturally comes out when someone first places it in front of my camera. You bet I did not move, touch or fuss with this very special ham when Cristina placed it on the table in front of me. This beautiful plate was quickly enjoyed by a table next to me as soon as I wrapped up the photoshoot.

Read about this year’s gardens in this week’s Idaho Mountain Express Newspaper.

So needless to say I loved my time in the peaceful gardens today. Above is one of the several new interpretative signs in the gardens. Yes, you may have noticed this is my photography on the Allotment Gardens sign.
