I know it has been very quiet around here! I have been really struggling to keep up with the blog but luckily, my friend Nik from A Brown Table is filling in for me today. Nik is not only amazingly talented, he’s one of the nicest, most genuine people I’ve ever met. If you’re not familiar with his blog, stop what you’re doing right now and go check it out. It’s amazing. Nik not only takes stunning photos, he makes the kind of food that really excites me. He uses bold, interesting flavor combinations in new and unusual ways. His blog has been receiving a lot of well deserved attention recently and I couldn’t be more excited for him! He recently won the 2015 IACP award for Best Photo Based Culinary Blog. And now he’s up for a Saveur Award for Best Food Photography. If you get a moment, please vote for him! But first, enjoy the stunning ice cream recipe he’s created. Take it away, Nik!
