Thursday night found me heading to the Main Branch of the Cleveland Public Library to attend the 7th Annual Lockwood Thompson Dialogue entitled, "A Conversation about Food" with food photographer Penny De Los Santos, chef and co-owner of Blue Hill at Stone Barns Dan Barber and mediator (and Cleveland Heights native) Michael Ruhlman.
De Los Santos shared a couple of stories about some assignments she's photographed (one in particular is a spread on Ramadan she did for Saveur mag), but the meat and potatoes of the dialogue was Barber, who could have lectured for hours. It was fascinating. Somehow I went in expecting a little bit of insight into the food scene of the 00s, but I left with my so much more. Thanks Cleveland Public for a great lecture!
