What’s With The Masthead?
I try to change the photo on the masthead often. Here are the full photos that get cropped to fit it’s size
I took this photo in Nishiki Market, Kyoto Japan. Sembei are fresh rice snacks that are seasoned with all sorts of good stuff.
This is one of the fish stalls in La Boqueria market in Barcelona, Spain. Boqueria is both a good and place to go grab a bite as it is a big tourist attraction and some of the bars/restaurants are really poor. But the produce at the market was all top notch.
This is a picture of all of the odd bits and off cuts of cow, pig and who knows what in the Mercato Central in Florence. For some reason this stall was not being swarmed by the tourists looking for samples.
I snapped this photo while wandering around severely jet lagged on my first day in Singapore. The trip turned out to be one of the most incredible culinary adventures and explains my obsession with food from the Straits.
A fish monger in Borough Market. Easily my favorite place in all of London. Even if you eat nothing it is just such a joy to wander amongst the stalls.
This photo was taken in Florence in May of 2008 while wandering around the streets behind the Duomo.
If you look closely at the photo you may notice that there are at least 5 different types of tomato alone! I had to be restrained from trying to climb into the boxes with the produce.
This photo was taken in 2001 on a trip to Kyrgyzstan. The photo is of berry vendors in Osh Bazaar in the capital Bishkek.
Osh Bazaar is the biggest food and everything you can imagine market in Bishkek. It was my first real encounter with an Asian bazaar and it was madness. The food areas were incredible.
The photo for July was snapped in Chinatown in NYC. I love Chinatown almost as much for its history as much as for the food. It is a great place to wander around (provided you step off of crammed Canal st.)
Prosciuttos hanging from the ceiling of a butcher in Greve in Chianti, Italy.
This is a shot of the window of a sweet shop in Sevilla, Spain. They were like edible jewels.
