Edible Hudson Valley was kind enough to publish the inaugural Pantry Portrait featuring my friend, Julia Sforza of Half-Pint Preserves in their Fall issue that hit the stands this week.

Earlier this summer, I visited Julia at her home in Ulster Park. She walked me all around her gardens - a hodgepodge of beds spread throughout her yard, gave me a tour of her preserve-stocked basement, and fed me the most delightful homemade lunch.
In return, I wrote about her brilliant preserves, her lyrical, earthy writing and her delicious food. And my photographer friend, Jennifer May took some lovely photos to accompany my words. One of them even ended up on the cover which is always a nice plus :)
You can read it here or, if you're in the Hudson Valley, pick up a copy of the magazine (it's free).
I hope to be able to share the next Pantry Portrait with you sometime this winter (but let's just pretend that winter is not coming, shall we?)
