I always love trying new food, especially when it comes to entertaining. We were chatting with food stylist Mariana Velasquez at an event where she was speaking about food styling and taste making. While Mariana being a food stylist is a job description that most understand, she’s also a taste maker. She considers style and trends not only with her ideas about food, but also beyond the table, plus she’s incredibly fashionable and stylish, making chic look effortless.
We invited Mariana up to Stony Ford to see what her ideal menu was for a summer afternoon. Over the next few weeks, we’ll share the entire meal, including all the recipes. Let’s start with these waffles! As soon as I saw this recipe I knew it would quickly become my brunch secret weapon. There is way too much zucchini in the garden (we had no idea three plants were to much for two people). And my love for smoked fish runs deep, but I never know how to eat smoked trout, except the typical New York bagel get up. Then the recipe turns into a triple threat with the poached egg. What more could one ask for in the perfect brunch recipe? Perfectly savory.
