Quark may be new to America, but it has been a culinary tradition in Europe for centuries. From my home country Germany (quark) to France (fromage blanc), from Norway (kvarg) to Russia (tvorog). It has been a staple in my childhood and I was super excited when Misha's Dairy hired me to photograph their campaign to introduce quark to the American market.
On the team were Liz Mazzei (art director & producer), Laurie Knoop (food styling) and Mia Müller-Schöll (assistant). We had a lovely shoot at Misha's Headquarters in Manhattan with co-founcer Kamilya. You can find out where to taste and purchase their products on their blog.
Breakfast is of course the best meal of the day. Cheese magazine Culture hired me to shoot a series of breakfast recipes involving cheese. What could be better. You can find the magazine online, at newsstands or at Whole Foods Market.
Just in time for Valentine's day my Winter Recipe booklet came back from the printer, woo-hoo! The collection features my favorite recipes from last year's photo shoots.

ps: if you are up for an extra special treat take a look at this video of my daughter going through the pages:
