Some new food pics!

As a chef, a source of constant joy for me comes from the simple act of creating. Now don’t get me wrong, I love to see peoples’ reactions as I unveil a new creation, but the really good stuff for me is the brainstorming, creation and execution of a new idea…especially when it goes off well. More of these photos can be seen at

This particular photo series was shot on a day I decided I was only going to buy one set ingredient, swordfish.  The rest of the produce and pantry items were simply the best quality ingredients at the market that day…here’s what I came up with:

Swordfish, baby bellas, cherry tomatoes, haricot verts, scallion, peach, chili oil, lemon, thyme and rosemary

At this point all I knew was that the fish was going on the grill…I decided to go with a marinade of fresh thyme, shallots, chili oil, cracked pepper and lemon zest.
