Patricius Winery at the Hungarian Consulate, NYC

I had the pleasure of attending a wonderful wine tasting at the Hungarian Consulate showcasing Patricius Winery from the Tokaji region of Hungary. Ancient, noble, sweet, distinct, renewed, complex and growing are terms that apply to this region, the wines, the wineries and the people who are reviving these wines to their former glory.  Katinka and Arno were amazing hosts and I appreciate them sharing their story and delicious wines.

Family Food Fotography

My daughters and I explored a couple different styles of photography, portrait and macro. Here are some of the photos that we got from playing with the macro lens. We started with skittles, a favorite food-like stuff of children, and then moved onto sardines, a favorite food of fathers. We also stylized basic pictures of spices and herbs working with aperture, lighting, and background.

Quail Hunter’s Birthday

A long time member and friend of the family’s birthday was today. I was told to make it special. This is lunch, and these are gentlemen hunters. Rustic and refined autumnal lunch is in order.

Bone in Pork Loin Roast with pickled peaches and glaze, maple braised butternut squash, sauerkraut, and apples.

Dessert was hummingbird cake.

Delicious.
