The Best Mistakes

are the ones that net you newfound knowledge. Such is the case in finding Lisa Hamilton.

If you remember last week I posted a bit about Chris Cosentino Astor Center "Head to Tail" offal tasting dinner, and I snagged a picture from Michael Ruhlmans website that I thought was done by Michael Harlan Turkell. Turns out I was wrong.

Chris Cosentino was kind enough to email me quickly in reference to a correction, and sent me a link to her page.

I haven't had a chance to look at it in detail until this evening, and I suggest you give it a few moments of your time. Lisa Hamilton is not just a great photographer of things culinary, but also an author. She has written a few books, one of which I am very interested to get my hands on; "Farming to Create Heaven on Earth," explores the Japanese spiritual farming and food movement called Natural Agriculture."

You can tell that there is love and respect for food there, so go check it out!... besides she's got a great shot of tripe and pigs heads! who doesn't love that?

There is something wickedly delightful about the pic Lisa has next to her bio....
