We recently had the honor of working with Design Within Reach on their holiday campaign, among other great creatives like Of a kind, Pouring Ribbons and Designers and Books. We were asked to create a holiday recipe for which we chose a crostini of ricotta, shaved squash, prosciutto and pomegranate. We think this is the perfect holiday starter, perfectly bright and seasonal - it is also great for lunch with a side of market greens.
