Rose and Currant Meringue. "This is almond meringue with rose cream and red currants from the cookbook Plum Gorgeous: Recipes and Memories from the Orchard by the talented writer and stylist Nani Steele. It was, to this date, my favorite book to shoot because it was just me and Nani talking, styling and collaborating on location. We were free to be as creative with the photos as if each one were a painting, and we had the luxury of a wonderful client, Andrews McMeel Publishing, that put complete trust in our abilities to deliver a visual poem to seasonal orchard fruit. It was a very rare, cathartic experience."
