Happy Place

stonypoint, ny

Everyone needs a happy place. Mine, for today, is my friend Robert’s house in Stonypoint, NY, which he’s lent to us two weekends running to pick his raspberries and blackberries while he's away. Robert is a master gardener, and his yard is his opus. He’s also a world-class photographer who has a studio-office flooded with natural light. So, if you’re looking for me, you’ll find me in the bramble picking berries, in the studio shooting them, in the kitchen teaching András how to make pancakes and biscuits or on the front porch eating them with mounds of melted berries.

My tip for berry picking: If it doesn’t come off easily, it’s not ready yet.

András' tip for berry picking: If it doesn’t come off easily, you’re not pulling hard enough.

Beautiful pics! I saw your interview on he cooks she cooks and thought it was so interesting because I'm starting to realize that no one wants to see the complicated or time consuming recipes.

Just wondering if you guys ever give tours of the Food Network test kitchens. I'd be interested if you do.
