Today I had the honor of doing a photo shoot with the Founder of Art Culinaire, Franz Mitterer, and their AMAZING photographer Steve Legato. (Let me take this moment to say if you love food and don’t subscribe to this magazine stop reading this now and SUBSCRIBE!)
The story was on trifles. I was asked to do one traditional layered trifle and 5-6 trifle inspired dishes. This has been a dream of mine since the bringing of my career. Not to date myself but that’s 11 years of waiting for this day. Needless to say I was honored. I wanted to really go all out and do desserts I have never done before. The night before the shoot I could barely sleep, worrying if everything would go smoothly the next day. It did! And a big thanks to Alex and Chris, my amazing sous chefs from Buzz and Birch & Barley who worked late Sunday and early Monday to help me pull this off!
