Happy Holidays and Good Fortune...Pickle

Posted on December 24, 2014 by Michelle in Holiday

There is a tradition, strange as it may be, that whoever finds a hidden pickle on Christmas morning receives a year of good fortune. We've hidden a few "fortune pickles" in this dinner scene -- can you find all five? (If so, you're way smarter than we are.)

Thanks for making this year a great one for K&P. Happy Holidays!

They say the Greatest Generation is the most loyal, selfless and hard-working  of all. With each passing year and the rise of new generations, it's easy to forget the men and women who so greatly influenced and sacrificed for today's luxuries.

As the holidays approach and we turn to gifts and sales and TV commercials, it's also easy to forget that today marks a very tragic event in U.S. history -- the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

What is it about eating that brings us closer together? National Geographic recently explored the topic in-depth in "The Joy of Food". The article is, in typical NatGeo form, complemented by beautiful photography.

As a food studio, we spend so much time in the details -- building sets, styling food perfectly with tweezers and enhancing the image to its final perfection that we often forget the bigger meaning behind our shared meals.

I'm not talking about the mom who dutifully wakes up at 5 a.m. to put the turkey in the oven and frantically cook while her husband relaxes on the couch watching football until she realizes, five minutes before guests arrive, that she has flour in her hair, hasn't showered yet, and oh dear God the cat just threw up.
