This is a poloroid from my first photoshoot as an art director. I was so incredibly nervous! The shoot was a success because of the amazing team I worked with that day—[ Sarah Cave, stylist;
Beatriz da Costa photographer; Christine Albano, food editor. ] I keep it on framed in my living room because it gets more beautiful as it deteriorates, and also to remind me to do scary things. Like write things on the world wide web.
P.S. Avocado Gelato—one of the recipes from this story—will rock your world. Christine garnished ours with a squeeze of lime and salt.
