CLMarch2015_Cover1

On a cold November morning, we crept down, almost like thieves in the night, to DC on a very secret mission to photograph the first lady, Michelle Obama. Who turned out to be everything I’d read about, and more: gracious, smart, disarmingly funny and refreshingly down-to-earth. It was a memorable day, and a day I’ll certainly never forget. The March 2015 issue with Michelle Obama on the cover, is out now. This is the first time we have ever run a person on the cover in the 27 year history of Cooking Light, and I’m so flattered and thrilled to have been the Creative Director on this project. Thanks to photographer Peggy Sirota, and her team, Erin Clinton. Producer: Amy Delaune, Food stylist Chris Lanier, with Anna Hampton, and of course our editor, Hunter Lewis. Who’s vision it was, right from the beginning. Great work team!

My goal with the current Chicken feature on newsstands right now was to elevate the humble weeknight meal, with a combination of props, both still, and organic. The combination of wooden cutting boards, worn tin surfaces, old cooking books, and whole veggies, like carrots, onions, lemon skins, and herbs, instantly created a comfy, soulful feel.
