One favorite recent long-term project I’ve been working on is producing a series for Apiece Apart profiling inspiring women. Working across careers, and living all over the world, the women are bound by living self-made lives (in whatever terms it means to them). It’s been truly inspiring to interact with these women: photographers, musicians, chefs, entrepreneurs, designers, and artists of all kinds. I’ve mentioned this series before, but here are a few favorite features (and photos) from the fall:

Emily Johnston

Christine Muhlke

Adele Stafford

Camille Becerra

Kai Avent-deLeon

Kazu Makino

Elisa Restrepo

And a bonus salad recipe from Camille Becerra that I can’t get enough of:

In salads, I like to approach pairings by looking at the fruits and vegetables in front of me and think about how they will work together — not only in flavor, but in palette. For this very simple one, I mandolined celery, fennel, persimmon, and Asian pear onto a plate, and drizzled it with Citronette, a French citrus dressing, which is very easy to make: it’s straight lemon juice, and you add some honey, which you keep adding until it tastes like a sweet lemonade. At that point, add some salt and whisk in a neutral, soft oil like grapeseed or canola, until it has some body and a good weighty consistency. Sometimes I even sprinkle a tiny bit of chile at the end — not so that it makes the dressing spicy, but so that it has a nice backend depth and sits on your palette a little longer.
