The weather has made me cry multiple times in the past two weeks.
I’m not kidding. Pure tears of complete joy.
Everything is golden and red and yellow and frosty and fresh and mossy all around me.
I smell the leaves and watch them fall, all of my favourite colours are all around me all at once.
I feel confident and colourful and cozy in my jeans and leather boots and wool sweaters.
These are the days of the year that I live for. The weather is perfect, the produce is perfect, and oh so beautiful!
And what a true blessing that my work allows me to cook and photograph beautiful food and smiling faces in magnificent locations. Man am I lucky!
For two days last weekend, I was in Tirol Austria, in the tiny village of Steinberg, staying at the Mesnerhof Camp, In one of the most beautiful renovated old farms I have ever seen.
I have been here twice before, for exactly the same reason, exactly 2 years ago. And every time it is just as magical, or maybe more, as the one before.
I worked the weekend with Christina, my long time friend and yoga instructor, planning, prepping and cooking meals for 25 people over two days. So even though I spent most of my time from dawn to dusk in the kitchen, I was able to sneak in a few moments of silence and photos at sunrise and sunset in order to capture this place, and all of you great people in the atmosphere to it’s fullest.

I don’t have much to say because looking back at the photos just makes me speechless. Celebrating these fall days with all of you is something so special to me. Cooking for and being around you all continues to bring me so much joy. Man is community and “being together” and bringing people together “to gather” at the table so important. Man have we missed out this the last few years.
Thanks Chrissy for letting me participate once again, as well as to Annabelle for helping me oh so much in the kitchen. I couldn’t have done it without you.
