Simple suppers for Coastal Living magazine

Hello friends,

I just returned from an amazing Ace Camps trip to Whistler, BC where I taught a food styling and photography workshop. Weather was beautiful and the landscape breathtaking. I will be sharing photos with you here soon.

In the meantime, I wanted to tell you about a food feature I wrote, styled and photographed for the September issue of Coastal Living magazine. The story titled “Simple Suppers” is all about late summer dining.

Seasonal, colorful, and perfect for entertaining.

I worked on this story a few months ago and it feels great to see it printed and on newsstands.

Two of the recipes featured, the lobster and apple salad and yogurt and coconut panna cotta with roasted nectarines, are straight out of my upcoming book Small Plates and Sweet Treats.

There are three other original recipes: tomato and goat cheese tarts, zucchini and mint gazpacho with radish salsa, and berry and hazelnut galette.

Some of my favorite late summer dishes that I cook for my friends many times.

You can find the September issue of Coastal Living in newsstands now. I hope you have a chance to see it.

I will be back soon with images and stories about our Whistler workshop. Oh, and I will tell you about my upcoming trip to Alaska too.

Be back soon!

  29. Very pretty, clean, and coastal-feeling indeed! I visited Door County, WI this summer, which is not by the sea but feels as if it is, with Lake Michigan being so big, and I have been drawn to all things nautical ever since!
