The end is near I thought...the end of summer is coming upon us...getting close, becoming a reality, drawing us in as we succumb to the change of the season. The fall is right around the corner and with it comes the great beauty of autumnal ingredients. It is hard to believe but although sad, fall is a welcomed thought. These shots represent the handful of nights and dishes where summer was still on the forefront of our minds and passions whereas we found ourselves surrounded by gifts from the earth via our wonderful farmer; Mark Lovejoy from Garden Treasures. For if not for him and passionate peeps like him, we would be cooking with pure shit. His passion of the earth and all that grows is what stimulates us to create our own desires and present the heart of our own craft. It fuels our passion to cook, thus to serve, thus to please. Hope you can get inspired by what you see to create your own inspirations and perspectives.
