I was delighted to have the chance to photograph one of Portland’s newest restaurants, Tempo Dulu, for the September issue of Down East. Owners, Raymond Brunyanszki & Oscar Verest, have created an incredible space in their Southeast Asian restaurant at the Danforth Inn. The food prepared by chef Lawrence Klang is truly wonderful, and was so much fun to shoot. Rounding out the talented team at Tempo Dulu are the inventive bar manager, Trevin Hutchins, and the wonderful general manager, Liz Totzeck.

august in vermont

Some of our happiest memories have taken place in the state of Vermont. We traveled to Woodstock right after we were married last year and have made a point to plan an August getaway there each summer since our first visit to the Green Mountain State in 2012. August is a truly wonderful time to be in Vermont – you can jump in picturesque swimming holes after a good hike and eat all of your meals outside. It is heaven!

Next month can’t come soon enough!

chris gould for food & wine people’s best chef!

Back in January I received a phone call from Paige & Chris Gould, the owners of Central Provisions, about shooting some imagery for them to use in this spring’s People’s Best New Chef contest sponsored by Food & Wine. It was all very exciting, made even more so because I had to keep the fact that he was up for the award a complete secret and not tell a soul. Food & Wine just released the list of New England contenders last week, and I couldn’t be happier to see Chris’s name (and photo!) among the region’s most accomplished chefs.

Click here to vote for Chris and his fantastic team at Central Provisions! Voting ends April 8th and the winners will be announced on the 9th.
