I was asked to photography Michael Mina for Ocean Drive magazine. They wanted a shot of Michael with a tool that he uses often as a chef. When he arrived, the only thing he really wanted to be photographed in was his 49er's jacket. I'm not really sure how that applies to his being a chef, but given that he's a long time 49er's fan, I'd say its a good time to show off the colors. Thankfully I was able to talk him out of it (the magazine was really hoping I would get him to choose something else). He ended up going with a truffle slicer and a truffle.
I've never really used an actual truffle. I've used truffle oil and truffle salt. I didn't realize just how potent smelling those things are. I do love Macaroni & Cheese wit truffle oil though.
