One of the things I’ve discovered since become a full-time freelancer is that it’s really important to reach and out find people with whom to collaborate. When you work in an office, teamwork is often assumed. When you work from the solitude of your living room, it takes intention to forge alliances.
What I have to share with you all is the product of one of these intentional alliances. A few weeks back, Tenaya Darlington (author of the blog Madame Fromage and the forthcoming book Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese: A Guide to Wedges, Recipes, and Pairings), Jason Varney (he blogs at Fussing with Forks, makes some of the most enticing food photography I’ve seen and is an Instagram wizard) and I teamed up. The results of our efforts are these four digital pages. They contain cheese suggestions, preserves and drinks to go along with those cheeses, and really gorgeous images.
Our hope is that you’ll take this mini-magazine, and try out the pairings and recipes. Gather your friends around a table, fill jelly jars with port, balance persimmon chutney atop a few crumbles of Stilton and appreciate the autumn.
