I recently mentioned a road trip down to Austin. The purpose of the trip was to meet with Mel about the paleo cookbook she’s writing and I’m designing – with Dave, Mel’s rad husband, shooting all the photography. What I didn’t know is that we would be eating so much amazing food. The night we got in Mel and Dave generously treated Jeremy and I to Lamberts. Now, if you live anywhere near Austin and haven’t eaten here yet I beg you to do so. Tonight. OH, and we were sitting next to Megan Mullally (better known from her role as Karen in Will & Grace) through the entire meal and I didn’t even notice.
The next day we had breakfast, went grocery shopping, brainstormed, cooked, ate some more, photographed some food and started the beginning of a life long friendship.
After the photo shoot Jeremy and I headed down to South Congress for some food truck action – and how perfect since I’ve got my very own food truck client now too (equipped with a vintage Airstream and all)! So we had some food truck research to do. Research that required us eating some sort of amazing mushroom basil lemon crepe and a mango and sticky rice crepe. Research that almost made me go for a third crepe filled with Nutella and bananas.
I like you, Austin, Texas. But I like your people and your food even more.
