More Fine Cooking by Carrie Purcell

For those of you who don't know Big Leo food stylist Carrie Purcell - where on Earth have you been? Carrie's recent work for the August/September 2010 issue of Fine Cooking Magazine, joins her with the talented food and lifestyle photographer John Kernick whose entertaining shoot entitled Bites for a Summer Night showcases "acepipes" or Portuguese small plates.  Not to be confused with tapas, these dishes are far more interesting and substantial and beautifully styled, of course. In the same issue, her coolly-crafted food illustration opens for 10 Ways to Eat Less Meat shot by staff photographer Scott Phillips. You'll be seeing a lot more from Carrie in the coming months with her contributions to Health, Prevention, The Nest, as well as Bertolli and Palmolive and whole slew of personal projects!  To keep up with her amazing skills, check out the Pictures and Pancakes blog she rocks out with her photographer husband, Andrew Purcell.   Happy (almost) August!
