Spain, I have had you on my mind for a few months now……
I blame it on the fact that we are dying to take a vacation, and now a few events have been teasing me. First was the arrival of a gorgeous new to me cookbook written by Jose Pizarro, I cannot wait to tell you all about it. I will just 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 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 were 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. 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!
