Happy New Year to all! Wishing all my visitors good health, peace, love, prosperity, and good fortune in 2014.
I begin this year with a couple of pictures of the parsnip. Why a parsnip, you might ask? Because one of my fav art directors, Jamie Laubhan-Oliver, called me with a last minute request needing a shot of it. And in my humble opinion, It’s a pretty shot, and because I haven't posted anything since October! And because somewhere in the universe, this handsome vegetable is a symbol of fertility, or good fortune. Perfect foto for the new year!
Finding it in December was not easy though. No luck at at the local grocery stores. Adorable and perky Kelley, better known as Jennie Kelley, of MasterChef fame, knew exactly where to find it, but I can’t tell you where, I am sworn to secrecy.
Parsnip actually makes a great zuppa. And Jennie actually used it that same weekend for her underground restaurant. I’ll have to photograph the recipe soon…
I present to you, The Pastinaca Sativa! Root vegetable of fertility gods, somewhere.
Feliz y prospero año nuevo!
