Sometimes you meet someone and you immediately KNOW this is a good, wonderful human, Dorie is that. She is warm, inviting, humble, and kind. I had the privilege of photographing her in her New York City home for a feature in The Kitchn, just in time to celebrate her new book, Everyday Dorie. After she’d made sure none of us were hungry, thirsty or in need of caffeine, she graciously stood and sat for portraits and whipped up what she calls her Ricotta Spoonable.
What you can’t see in the pictures is all the water we spilled. There was some strange joojoo going on that day, which, Dorie told me later, didn’t end after the shoot, but we laughed and all was well.
My favorite picture is the one at the end of this post. You can see how loving she is.
