Creating these recipes and documenting the process for Bob Cut has been very fitting for the heavy rains the Bay Area has been experiencing. In lieu of stronger seasons, and in this drought no less, the rains have been welcome. So here we have two recipes, a classic apple cider and a fragrant cardamom pear cider because one must take advantage of the Bosc pears this time of year. Stylist and good friend, Danielle Wallis and I had such a great time with this shoot, from sourcing the props, looking like loons at Rainbow Grocery by critically inspecting and picking out each piece of fruit haha, to the day of shooting. These drinks are perfect for a cold rainy afternoon curled up with a book or sharing with friends. Enjoy!
