2017 Best Things I Ate


Foodie [foo-dee] noun.

a person that has the unique ability to turn a casual meal into a passionate, life changing experience.

As a self-identified foodie and amateur gourmand, I'd say my love for the culinary arts trumps all else. There's power in the magic of a good meal. Regardless of who you are or where you come from, a good meal is one of life's most universal pleasures. A great unifier. A great passion we all share.

We all HAVE to eat.

And 2017 proved to be one of the most delicious years of "eating" I've had yet. Between my professional shoots and personal visits to all sorts of bucket list-worthy restaurants, I've built one stunning food diary of 2017. It makes my mouth water just looking at it!

Everything from the perfect french toast, to authentic tacos in Mexico, to some truly delicious dishes all across NYC (legit bagels & lox, anyone?), to my new favorite pizza in Chicago...

It truly was one delicious year!
