Recently I was going through a series of photographs for a client. The typical regimen for editing photos as follows: increasing brightness or exposure, playing with temperature, bringing out key colors and playing with the vibrance and saturation. I have my own mark on photos. I like photos as if they are from film. There is something so special about those types of photos. But that’s not what I’m here to explain.
The client, a young woman around the same age as me, in her mid-20s, wanted portraits. Like anyone, and obviously any girl, she wanted to hide her imperfections. I just listen and hope that the photos come out just the way she wants. Something she asked me, caught me by surprise though. “Can you not get rid of those scar on my forehead? It reminds me of a time I overcame the worst in my life and I want people to know how proud I am for that very moment.”
That is why I love photographing. Capturing moments, stories, memories. It’s no lie when they say, a picture’s worth a thousand words.
This moment inspired me to share a very special recipe with you. One that is quite often made in my kitchen. It’s one of the simplest dishes, that I did not even think to share. Though it captures one of those moments that brought culinary innovation to my life. Inspired me to appreciate cooking and all that is provides to everyday life and my family’s life. The very, very first dish I learned to cook and cook on my own. I hope you enjoy.
