So, I don't usually post about my non theatre-related projects, but this was kind of a big one. I started working on The Blossom Cookbook about two and a half years ago. We were unbelievably lucky to find a publishing partner in no less than Penguin Random House, one of the largest publishers in the world. Over the next two years, we meticulously planned, designed recipes, tested recipes (and tested, and re-tested recipes), wrote the accompanying headers and story, and I photographed every single dish. It's been exhausting and stressful, but also incredibly gratifying to see my photos and work begin to coalesce into a physical book.
I'm very proud of the end result (as well as the fact that it's an entirely vegan cookbook), and as of TODAY, April 25th, 2017, it will FINALLY be released to the public, available to be ordered on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or at a bookstore near you! (Seriously, I'd love to see where you find our book! Send me a photo if you see it out and about!)
I'm credited as both the photographer and an author, and I'd love for you to see what we've created!
I'm so grateful to our literary team at Avery and Penguin Random House, our literary agent, and my co-authors for the opportunity. Special thanks to Kiley Caughey for her support (and for putting up with hearing about this for two years), to James Masciovecchio, Daniella E. Benavides, and Christie Carter for testing a few recipes, and to Lauren Morrison Yanchuk and Timothy Pakron for allowing me to bounce some ideas around!
