It is a glorious day here in NYC and Thanksgiving is in the air. This is the busiest travel day of the year in the US, as everyone scrambles to get where they need to be. Lucky for me I have a bike, and my family is safely out of the path of bushfires in Port Lincoln. So I needed only to get to the markets today and what a feast there was. If the sheer volume of pies didn’t astonish you the colour of fresh produce did. Red cranberries, purple cauliflowers and black potatoes caught the sun next to orange squash and blue pumpkins. Monster turkeys created last minute envy in those who preordered from the supermarket, strangers chatted to each other about the celebration that would grace their table, and shopping bag philosophy gave us pause…
Many thanks to you all for sharing this fantastic year with me – let’s see what we can do with the next one…!
What no purple carrots! I just wanted to reach into the screen and pluck a delicious looking pie. Brilliant statement in final photo and the model.. what else can I say!
Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving to you both x
Thank you Dallas – you are a wonderful woman!
They’ve got purple carrots at the F+V shop in Lygon Street Carlton..and they look beautiful laid
out in a wicker basket next to cream and orange carrots…..Fitzy your pictures are amazing, I’m
going to make a pumpkin pie this weekend…
Thanks Jenny – you can hardly believe these vegetables are real – and they taste so delicious. I included red beetroots with a rainbow of others in my NZ lamb shanks for Thanksgiving and it came out almost iridescent. Happy baking – pumpkin pie for the weekend sounds yum!
