our state | vivian howard

I was joking recently that I should get an apartment in Kinston, North Carolina  – I have been there 6 or 7 times this year alone for various shoots involving the wonderful and talented Vivian Howard.  

We are so excited to have the November cover of Our State magazine featuring Vivian’s famous blueberry chicken. It’s this yummy chicken that launched Chef & the Farmer on it’s way.  

There were so many good shots from this shoot that just couldn’t fit in the Our State article so we wanted to share a few of our faves with you.  The food shots will make you want to head straight over to the Chef & the Farmer or the Boiler Room for something scrumptious – if you haven’t been . . . make it a plan!  You won’t be disappointed. 

Stay tuned for a Behind the Scenes on the set of A Chef’s Life post coming soon!
