If you had asked me a month ago if I ever in a billion years expected to be looking at my photo (twice! in the print edition anyway) and my recipe in the New York Times, I would have said you were crazy. But thanks to the wonderful folks behind food52 and Times reporter Kim Severson, there I am. And wow, I don’t know how I’m going to get any work done today.
I’ve never been comfortable having my photo taken, but can I just say that Mike Mergen is an absolute peach and a wonderful photographer, who made me feel incredibly comfortable during what was one of the more surreal days of my life. (Unfortunately, he also captured my horrific knife skills – my hands were shaking so hard I’m surprised I didn’t lose a finger!) So yeah. The Times. Think we’ll uncork something fizzy tonight.
