Sip Snap Savor at The Silver Spoon

A few weeks ago, Melissa Schilling from sip snap savor contacted me and asked if I was interested in contributing to her project. She and Philip Wartena are going on tours around the country for the purpose of writing a documentary style cookbook about what people eat at home. In her own words, "sip snap savor is is a road trip project designed to photograph and capture regular people, in their homes preparing and enjoying life's simplest of pleasures. Food."

I hosted them at the restaurant on Monday for lunch. It was a great experience, they are both full of energy and excitement about their project- and rightfully so, as I think it is a wonderful thing. Phil is a professional photographer and she is a wine and cheese instructor soon to become a published writer. We had a lunch of Shrimp Creole, then moved on to the kitchen for a while and waited for the lunch rush to end. Next they go to Austin and I can't wait to see what they discover there. I will certainly be keeping up with their project.

The photo of the spoon above was taken by Phil, he did a wonderful job and I can't wait to see the rest of the photos.


  1. This is a cool idea. Gourmet magazine was doing something similar to this in a video format. Going to peoples houses in Rome and Paris to see what they were cooking and then document how they were cooking it.

    Cool idea :)

  2. Thanks Katia!

    We really enjoyed meeting with you and Mike and LOVEd that Berry trifle.

    Pictures coming soon!

    Cheers and Kisses,

    Phil & Melissa
