Where the hell have you been?

Does this sound like you?

"So Kate, what the hell?  You just get a couple of photo gigs with the City Pages and Heavy Table and forget about the people who helped you get there?"

No!  No, I haven't forgotten you!  There's an explanation that I've completely neglected to mention to you.  An AWESOME explanation, at that!  Back in January you remember this post, where in exchange for taking pictures I was able to enjoy the new winter menu at a place called Heidi's.




And then this happened in February:




Which was quite sad, really.


But Stewart and Heidi really appreciated the work I had done for them back in February, and it just so happened that Stewart had been approached about writing a cookbook and asked me to be the photographer.  Uhhh... What?  I'm still in disbelief about the whole thing, and as of next Tuesday, the entire thing will be wrapped up.  Hence, the absentee blogger.  I can't share any images with you from the book, but I can tell you the food is delicious and that I'm very proud of the work I've done artistically (and of course I'll encourage you to purchase the book come October).  Until then, I'm working on getting back into the cooking and photographing groove I've been missing out on a personal level for the past few months and bringing you the snobby food posts you've grown to love from yours truly. 


Fire in the hood.  

I ran over to South Minneapolis yesterday afternoon after being alerted that Heidi's and Blackbird were going up in smoke.  Thanks to the wonders of the internet I was able to live blog the situation on the Heavy Table.  James Norton and I each wrote a follow up perspective which were published today.  Please keep all of the employees of the five neighborhood restaurants and shops that were affected by this devistating event in your thoughts.  Additionally, if you happen to know about any food related employment opportunities in the Twin Cities for stranded employees, give Stewart Woodman a shout.
