I am so excited to finally share a project I worked on last spring! As you know Portland is known for their food carts. It's not an exaggeration when I say they are infiltrating every neighborhood at this point and I am not complaining! One of the most acclaimed food carts is The Sugar Cube, operated by Kir Jensen. This cart is devoted to sweets only. From delicious ginger drinks to salty chocolate brownies, The Sugar Cube will have you breaking all your diet rules in seconds. Kir has been writing a cookbook (with Danielle Centoni) for the last couple of years and last spring, my favorite photographer on the block, Lisa Warninger, was hired to photograph it. Lisa asked if I'd come along and provide some set and prop styling.
We spent three busy days shooting the cookbook and additional days and weeks, prepping of course! Big thanks to the lovely Lauren Willhite for being my right-hand girl! It was one of the most intense shoots I've worked on, but definitely the most rewarding. I claim to love mostly savory food, but Kir's treats changed me. She's a master at mixing the sweet and savory and I love her for that. I probably gained 10 pounds on the shoot! The honey truffle popcorn recipe, pictured above, is my absolute favorite treat from the book, but I can attest that everything is amazing.
I love these tiny Kraft paper boxes and thought it would be fun to freshen them up with some paint and waxed twine to make cute little candy boxes. They'd be adorable for a little party or sweet for a wedding. See the full story over at Project Wedding. Thank you to Kelly Searle for assisting!
My flower friend, Liza, formerly of Quince here in Portland, just launched her new flower website for her Brooklyn business, Peartree Flowers. Her work has always been so effortless with an emphasis on thoughtful color combinations. Take a peek right here! Congrats, Liza!
