Spain, I have had you on my mind for a few months now.  I blame it on the fact that I have been dying to take a vacation, and now a few fun travel events are teasing me.  First was the arrival of a gorgeous new cookbook written by Jose Pizarro, I cannot wait to tell you all about it.  I will say this, I love that the book is broken down into segments of Spain, and that I get to taste a little of the whole country.  Just makes it even hard to decide where to go first!

Second, I have been shooting some recipes for Lava Lake Ranch.  They are in our opinion the best lamb in the USA, and now they are raising grass-fed beef.  The first recipe I shot for them are these outrageous Spanish meatballs.  If you love to cook tapas, add them to your menu.

Third, my friend Tim, pinged me a couple weeks ago with the lure of Spain.  Tim Clinch is a world renowned food photographer, and I had the honors of sitting in during one of his food photography workshops in the Gascony region of France.  I cannot say enough wonderful things about the experience as well as shooting alongside him.

I learned so much about shooting, telling a story and editing, then I have in a very long time.  For 2013, Tim is teaching with his same hands-on approach in Andalucia, Spain and Kotel, Bulgaria.  I am definitely teetering on hopping over to Spain for one of the workshops;  I can only imagine the delicious things waiting to be shot!
