I’ve been in Atlanta for a few weeks now with my clients for a new film, and it has been an absolute blast so far! Among lots of hard but super rewarding work and many fun activities, I became a proud member of the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. I’ve been going about once a week, as I absolutely love being around the dozens of tropical and other trees and plants, and learning about them. Seeing all these beauties reminded me of all the exotic fruits I’ve tried in the past, and even gave me some inspiration to create new recipes.
Please check out the beautiful gardens and landscapes with me through these videos. Among other things, you’ll see Indian curry and cinnamon trees, a Yerba Mate tree, and a Tropical Conifer Tree from New Caledonia (that only grows there), which looks and feels uncannily like rubber!
