I am very happy and excited to be able to tell you about my newest project! In fact I should be calling it “My Dream Book”. The book will be called RIPE: Satisfy your lust for fruits and vegetables with 75 fresh recipes and hundreds of simple combinations. It will be a colorful, photo-heavy book dedicated to fresh produce. Yes, this means I get to spend endless hours photographing fruits & vegetables! And to top it off I get to work with the very talented & witty food writer Cheryl Sternman Rule. Those that know me well know how much I have always loved fresh fruits and vegetables (well except for peas at a very young age). And yes, it’s true I often eat salad for breakfast. So it’s probably unnecessary for me to mention the hundred other reasons I adore fruits & vegetables and why this makes me so happy. But I would like to add how ecstatic I am to be collaborating on this book with Cheryl as I know my photography is going to be driven so purely by passion and I know the strength and charm of Cheryl’s words & recipes and I know how they will be the perfect platform and compliment. To help understand my happiness I suggest visiting Cheryl’s blog: 5 second rule especially if you’d like to read her post about our book deal!
A huge thank you to Jenni Ferrari-Adler of Brick House Literary Agents in New York and to Geoffrey Stone of Running Press for giving us this opportunity to produce this unique book!
