Hello! Zoe here again...
With the long summer days and warm weather has come the fruit season, and in full force! While the CSA runs, I joyfully plunge into apples, pears, peaches, nectarines, and especially plums. The many varieties of this sweet, juicy fruit have never failed to delight me for my many years at North Star.
As random and ludicrous as the art can be, food arrangement is fascinating. My family has always had great food artists, and many masterworks, such as this, have been born from suppertime musing. However, a more elegant, less personifying arrangement—such as a bowl of plums—often carries more artistic significance, even if merely due to lack of laughability.
Enjoy the flavors of the season...but don't forget - it's ok to play with your food!
