This is the Feast 50 issue, and there are tons of amazing photographs of food and beverages by myself and the other amazing photographers that I have the pleasure of working with.

When I was growing up there was a black walnut tree growing in an alley at the end of our property. All that I knew about it was that it dropped messy green golfball-sized seeds everywhere which would stain your hands black if you tried to break them open to get at the nuts inside. Now that I am a grown-up I’ve discovered just how awesome black walnuts are. Despite the fact that they are a pricey due to the difficulty in hulling and their relative scarcity, they are one of my favorite nuts. Their distinctive rich flavor is something that I look forward to each fall.
These cookies will turn your kitchen in an art gallery faster than you can say abstract expressionism. Instead of oil paint you’ll be dripping, splattering and flinging delicious dark and white chocolate onto these incredibly sweet, decadently buttery coconut oatmeal lace cookies. There’s not wrong way to do it, and in the end you’ll have something that could be hung on a museum wall … if you can resist eating them long enough!
