In Fall of 2016 Garden Collage published a gallery of recipes called “Five Creative Ways To Use Fall Apples”. GC Graphic Designer and resident in-house chef Eidia Moni Amin stepped up to the plate for this piece, baking an Apple Tart that has since become iconic amongst the staff.
Molly’s take: “Eidia has such a talent for art and cooking. For the ‘extra apples’ piece, we wanted to craft a story about how to creatively utilize an abundant harvest– since apples typically grow in excess, and one can only eat so much applesauce. The fact that Eidia devised these ‘apple roses’ out of thin air never ceases to amaze me, and Andie (our Photo Editor) captured the resulting tart beautifully. This image made me want to take a picture, pin it on my wall, and cry all at once. This apple tart captures the beauty of a common garden ingredient in new and unexpected ways.”
