I am honored to have been asked by Real Food, Real Kitchens to participate in a photo shoot for their upcoming cookbook. Jammi Sloan Yorke came by our place in Bay Ridge yesterday to photograph me preparing my *twice award winning* seafood chili. 

Family, food, culture and history; these are the essence of Real Food Real Kitchens, a cooking series that goes into the real kitchens of everyday people and explores one of their most cherished traditional family dishes. Real Food Real Kitchens tells the intimate story of a person, their family, and their culture and how food creates an emotional bond that connects them all together.

Looking forward to the release of the cookbook in the fall! For now, check out this quick snap, and keep updated via their website at http://realfoodrealkitchens.com
