I am teaching a dessert and wine pairing class called “Say Cheese!” at The Chef’s Gallery in Stillwater, Minnesota, Saturday, February 21st. Here is a photograph of one of the desserts; a Vanilla Bean, Fresh Thyme, and Fromage Blanc Cheesecake with Blueberry Compote. The cheesecake and graham cracker cookie are two separate components as you can see in the photo.
My friend David Schmit came over recently to give me some pointers concerning how to photograph food. He’s the one that took the photograph. He and I were chatting about offering a class in food photography. If you might be interested in such a class, please let me know. Also, if you are interested in learning more about making cheese the star of your dessert, be sure to sign-up for the class on Saturday, February 21, 2009 at The Chef’s Gallery .
