I have always been inspired by the colors and textures of food. The Food Boutonnière series is a collection of meals I've prepared and cooked. I then take the raw ingredients of each dish to make a boutonnière.
Chinese stir-fried vegetables made with bok choy, Chinese leeks, carrots and bean sprouts.
Cucumber and tomato salad with feta cheese, cilantro and a squeeze of lemon juice.
Roasted beets. The greens are the leaves from the beets.
Pea and spinach soup topped with fried bunashimeji mushrooms.
Spaghetti with broccolini, garlic, capers and a squeeze of lemon juice.
Mango salsa with jalapeño, purple pearl onion and cilantro.
