Food Photographer Sarah Flotard's Go-To Recipe for the Fall Season

In my mind Sarah Flotard has the best of jobs. She is a food photographer and video director. Before Sarah stepped behind the camera, she cut her chops as a line cook for a well-known, James Beard award winning chef. Let’s just say she knows her way around food. Earlier this fall I asked Sarah what her favorite, go-to autumn recipe was. Having photographed food for over ten years, Sarah knows a great dish when she tastes one. Hands down, her fave fall go-to is: pan-seared brussels sprouts with apples, bacon, shallots and rosemary. “It’s the sweet fresh apple combined with the nutty taste of brussel sprouts and the savory bacon strips that make it so yummy," she says. Sarah shoots consistently with client PCC Community Market. This recipe is from a photoshoot she did with PCC to promote fresh fruit and vegetables for the holiday season.
