What I took away from the experience is that no task is too small for absolute attention to detail. That attention is what leads to the perfectly turned down bed, seamless wine service, and a “wow” program for each guest… If a person has the interest, it is clearly possible to do something nice. But is *nice* enough? What is your definition of quality and service? Greatness is a whole other level, and it’s something that isn’t so easy… My relatively short time at The French Laundry made this clearly evident. I discovered that achieving greatness at any organization requires someone almost fanatic at the top.

permalink I loved shooting Helene and Spencer Marshall of Marshall’s Honey today. I’m a huge fan of honeybees and it was a wonderful experience getting to know such a sustainable (and delish!) spot run by very cool people. Fun fact: Marshall’s Mt Tam Wildflower Honey was our wedding favor since we were married on Mt. Tam!

permalink My photoshoot today with Connie Green, fungi forager extraordinaire, was amazing! Connie is truly one of a kind and meeting her was very special. She was even sweet enough to send me home with some hedgehog and black trumpet mushrooms plus handmade black truffle butter. I’m in heaven right now!
