I had the pleasure of photographing Ember restaurant for the current issue of Edible San Luis Obispo Magazine, and just had to share some favorites from the shoot. Chef Brian Collins, his wife Harmony, and the entire team welcomed me with open arms and made me feel at home while I ducked around the restaurant for an afternoon. I love the creativity that Chef Collins and Sous Chef David James bring to the tables at Ember, updating the menu every month with fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients. Ember’s motto, woodfired honest food,is something I got to witness in addition to the passion and enthusiasm of everyone working there. Always something new to get excited about, do yourself a favor and spend some time at this gorgeous eatery!
I’m back on Made By Girl with a Bourbon Cider Cocktail that will bring big cheers to your holiday season. Step 1: Take your favorite bourbon and steep a handful of cinnamon and spice in it. Step 2: Well, that’s over on >> Made By Girl!
A benefit of working with Edible San Luis Obispo Magazine is all the new recipes I get to try. This is how the Cabernet Gorgonzola Burger came into my life. How could these ingredients go wrong in one of humankind’s greatest creations, the BURGER. What made this extra mouth-watering is the Sriracha sauce and the caramelized onions. There’s a lot of bold flavors going on here. On the side, this Red Wine Apple Slaw was a welcomed crunchy, tangy addition to the dish. // note: I strayed a bit from the recipe and tested wine in the burger mixture. We loved the flavor that comes from adding 1/2 cup wine to the beef.
