Fall 2009 in Atlanta has been dismal weather-wise: gray, rainy, uninspiring. Where better to add color and excitement to my life than through food. Here’s how I tried to accomplish my enlightening:
Starting simply with raw vegetables, salad adds an oomph of color with ease.
Pure Food and Wine in NYC takes care in it’s presentation of vegetarian plates.
I handed the staff at the St. Regis a plastic bag of peaches, and they gave them back to me the following day, looking like the above.
Dekalb Farmer’s Market mesmerized me with juicy, red strawberries.
Cafe 101 brought life to shaved ice by putting a variety of fruit as a topping.
And lastly, a special rehearsal dinner groom’s cake presented the full gamut of the rainbow.
