Caribbean Belle


Way back in the summer I created a Plum Carpaccio and this particular recipe generated a lot of buzz and hype. It was to be published in France and in New Zealand and also in the Caribbean but the funny realistic thing of it all is I had no idea if it actually was ever published since I somehow never received any copies of the publications. This is also a testament to how things have changed in the digital world, people e mailed me and asked if they could use it and credit me and I said yes and then they vanished, my guess is that they never used it. All this changed today when, lo and behold, my lovely friend Cynthia from Tastes Like Home managed to get me a copy of her article that was published in the January issue of Caribbean Belle magazine. This publication is available online and at news stands - but I think you would need to be in the Caribbean to pick one up.



I scanned in the piece but you can go to the website to see it there as well. In my scanned version I included my Plum Carpaccio picture that they said they could not include because I shot it at too low a resolution (I did not expect it to be printed but I have since started to shoot everything with possible printing in mind) so this is how it would look in my ideal world.



As much as I would have loved to have my photo included in the actual piece I am still happy to have my recipe out there for more of the world to see. Thanks Cynthia.

deb said...

that is so wonderful and it's about TIME!

now with that being said meg and I had a recipe, pretty basic, published in RR YUMO cookbook 2008. obviously we felt honored. However, we never received a copy of that book or a signed copy from RR "celebrity" and it was for a good cause but come on! it was a cookbook for kids and meg should have got kuddos.

anyway its not about us. it's about you.

tanya and are coming soon to NYC and we need a guide? ;)
