A TEXTILE-TYPE DESIGN

A textile-type design using a selection of fruit and veg I had to hand; watermelon radish from my parent’s garden, the last of the yellow courgettes from my greenhouse, long green peppers and pomegranates from a recent photo shoot , purple heirloom carrots (a gift from my Mother’s kindly friend) and some forgotten figs I found in the fridge. I love how each ingredient has its own little back story and how sometimes a seemingly random collection of things can inexplicably make a harmonious whole!

Afterwards I teamed them with a crispy ‘savoyed’/bubbled leaf lettuce from the garden, some shaved Florence fennel (curled in iced water), fronds of bronze fennel and a zesty citrus and pomegranate juice vinaigrette dressing and they turned into a lovely Wintery salad.
