{oh joy eats lunch with} james ransom... 10 May 2012


Who James Ransom—still life, food, and interiors photographer and contributor to Food52

Where Inwood/Washington Heights, New York City

Time 1:45 pm

What's a typical lunch for you? I usually go for something light and easy, like a ham and cheese sandwich or a yogurt with fruit. If I'm lucky to be on a shoot that's catered, I always end up eating way too much of whatever they bring, but I'm trying to be more careful about that this year! Today I'm working from home, and I happen to have the ingredients and the time to cook {which is rare} so I made my favorite dish—linguini with alfredo sauce and steamed asparagus.

What's your dream/ideal lunch? A nice cut of Argentine steak cooked over a wood fire at a grill in Buenos Aires, a side of Ensalada Rusa {potato salad with carrots, peas, and hard boiled egg in mayonnaise}, and homemade flan.

Dessert with lunch? Most definitely. I could really go for a perfect piece of coconut cream pie, but I'll probably have to settle for a cup of mint tea with sugar.

Thanks James!

table toppers... 9 May 2012





I kind of have an addiction to table linens. It's as if I think I'm going to have twenty people over at once for a dinner party one day and everyone needs their very own set. Needless to say, I'm always lusting after fun and graphic napkins like these ones by Anna Joyce. I love that they can be mixed-and-matched and look just right when they aren't match perfectly! — Joy

Who  Hannah Queen, photographer and food blogger

Where Blue Ridge, Georgia

Time 3:30 pm

What's a typical dessert for you? I never order dessert out, so when I eat it, it's usualy something I've baked at home. My desserts are pretty simple and not too sweet. I love things like honey tapioca, lightly sweetened fruit pies in the middle of summer, and tart citrus desserts in the winter. This is a leftover maple buttermilk tart that I created for a blog post. It has a hazelnut crust which is my favorite thing ever. I topped it with extra whipped cream and toasted hazelnuts. 

What's your dream/ideal dessert? A dessert picnic in the middle of a forest. Little tarts, jam cookies, and towering cakes—I'd invite all my friends.

How often do you treat yourself to dessert? About once a week, or whenever I need to write a blog post! 

Thanks Hannah!
