    This looks amazing! Love the video! I have a cheap little point and shoot camera, soooo I don’t think it has RAW. :/ Thanks for the tip though.
    The salad looks amazing! I rarely eat salads, but this one looks like a must try! Especially because of the peaches! ;)

      Nothing wrong with that!! At the end of the day, it’s still the photographer that matters ;) Thanks, Anne!

      Thank you so much, Aysegul!! And I love your blog — I just came across it a few days ago! That stroganoff is gorgeous.

    Grilled fruit & arugula salad, huh? Soul mates ;) Well, this salad is absolutely gorgeous and your pics are, as always, phenomenal. That light! Shooting RAW really makes the difference and I think people are without a reason afraid of it. It makes just everything so much more awesome and give you more space and possibilities to get the best out of your shots. Sending you lots of love and hugs to Brooklyn!

    P.S. Read your guest post on Adventures in Cooking today. Girrrrl! You totally nailed it.

    Barrata is the best. Just used a whole lot of it yesterday, but I still have some so this salad has to happen. I love cheese and fruit together so much.

    And the video! I of course love it. You two rock as a team!

      Oh my gosh, me too! Fruit and cheese wasn’t not something that seemed intuitive to me but ever since I first had it as a pairing, I’ve been hooked. Thanks so much, Tieghan!

    Wow!!! So nice) the whole post is so summery) I like the video and photos…and since i am a peach and cheese fan, this is the salad of my dreams)

    I also shoot only in RAW, once I was shooting a dawn, and when opened my Lightroom, realized that all the photos were taken in JPEG. But, actually, the dawn was so beautiful, that the photos didn’t need a lot of editing )

      Thank you so much, Maryna!! And omg, that must have been the worst feeling! But yay for the photos being just right as they are :) mishaps like these are a good reminder that at the end of the day, it’s more about what you’re shooting and not the equipment you use :)

    Yes, barrata basically changed my life. I had it for the first time at Verjus, the best lunch spot in Paris on a sandwich with very similar ingredients to your lovely salad.

      Oooh, I’ve heard such amazing things about Verjus! I’ll have to keep it in mind if I’m ever back in that magical city. Thanks for stopping by, Anna!

    i think burrata might be my spirit cheese. so freaking good. now if only i could find it in the middle of nowhere…!!!! i might have to make a middle of nowhere version of this with plain jane mozzarella :) gorgeous photos, my dear!!!! happy thursday to you :)

    • tworedbowls says:

      August 7, 2014 at 11:22 pm

      omg YES spirit cheese!!!! I’m pretty sure I’m just Kraft singles….. or maybe not even. More like the green can parmesan. xD Happy Thursday to you lovely lady!! <3 <3

    This is so gorgeous. And the video too!!! You guys are so talented. But oh my goodness – this salad, with the flavored oil and vinegar, and the burrata … omg. Sadly I don’t think I can get burrata anywhere near me, and I’ve never had it. It’s times like this that I wish I lived in Brooklyn. And then we could be neighbors and have brunches together and stuff, like Brooklyn people. I have a fantasy life where I live in Brooklyn…. anyway I’m rambling but this is beautiful and I love it.

      No!! How sad! I actually found it randomly in a Key Foods the other day and was so surprised — maybe Whole Foods or something? Or Plan B(rooklyn), just move here and make the fantasy life a reality! :) Thanks so much for the sweet words, Sara!

      Haha! We live several floors up, so we can’t clean them ourselves, but yes, I think our landlords had just had someone come before this! :) So fresh and so clean clean.

      That’s so funny you said that, Jane! I never noticed! In my family, my dad is the one with the steady hands — he was a star in his med school class. Maybe the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree after all… (Except I could have neeever ever gone to med school!) Thank you so much for watching and for stopping by, friend! Give Piri a big big kiss for me :):):)

    Burrata is my jam. Love love love. I like to eat mine very similar to this, with grilled apricots, basil pesto and arugula. It’s so damn good. Can’t get enough. Your pictures are gorgeous and loving the grilled peaces! XO

    • tworedbowls says:

      August 7, 2014 at 11:28 pm

      Oh my gosh. Now I wish I had more burrata! Apricots and basil pesto sound heavenly. Thank you so much for the kind words, Liz!

    burrata and peaches, YES! such a perfectly summery salad. i can just imagine the texture and flavour contrasts. and a bonus little sneak peek of your gorgeous legs ;) such a lovely collaboration between you and your (soon-to-be) husband :)

    Hilarious about the raw/jpeg messup. You’d never know with these gorgeous photos! The video was lovely + so fun. What a fun thing you guys can do together! And this recipe………..feeeed me.

      Baha, so funny right?! I want to think it was a good reminder to calm down on post-processing once in awhile :) I wouldn’t be surprised if I sometimes rely too much on editing software. And yes! It was so so fun! And the editing process too (although I was suuuper glad I didn’t have to be the one fiddling with clip times and aligning it with the music and all that.. haha!) Thanks so so much for stopping by, Ashley!

    sooooo I still shoot in jpeg because I have an irrational fear of RAW. *cringe* I know, I know, it’s completely silly. Maybe I’ll make it my goal to experiment with RAW this weekend…I can do this!!! (But really, I would have had no idea if you hadn’t told us!!)
    I love the contrast of flavors in this salad. Sweet, peppery, creamy, tangy– it’s got it all!! And the best part of the video is definitely when you cut into that big squishy ball of burrata!!

    • tworedbowls says:

      August 7, 2014 at 11:34 pm

      Yesss! I can’t wait to see what you think of shooting RAW! But actually, I’m kind of loving that you shoot in JPEG! Your photos are so so gorgeous, it just goes to show that the technical stuff only matters so much at a certain point. Thank you so much for the sweet words, Katie!

    Caramelized onions DO make everything better!! OK I am starting to feel like I don’t know burrata at all. I didn’t know it contained, in fact, two textures. This is exciting and wonderful! The way you described this salad I am dying to have a portion on a plate in front of me immediately. Beautiful. Keep those videos coming! I love them!

    So lovely!! (As always) I love anything with peaches and you have me sold when you added burrata. Love the video.. So much talent my dear!

    ughhh, this salad!!! there’s nothing i love more than fruit with greens – i’ve been obsessed this summer! and the burrata (!), totally takes me back to the days where i lived for mozzarella and all its off-shoots! there’s a restaurant called, Frank in the e. village that has the BEST buffalo mozzarella i’ve ever eaten, they serve up super simple w/ some tomatoes + basil – the best!

    beautiful shots as always, cynthia! way to make use of that lovely window and light! and the (two red bowls productions) video?! there are not enough exclamation marks to convey how lovely it is! wishing you both the loveliest of weekends! xo

    I’m soooo loving these short-videos!! And peach + burrata, a match made in pure summer heaven. XO

    Never tried burrata with peaches but definitely will do. In Apulia, where they make they best burrate that you can find, they also sell only the creamy inside of the burrata. It’s called stracciatella (like the ice cream) and is pure heaven! If you ever happen to be in Italy, keep an eye open for it!

    I can’t get over how beautiful this recipe is!! Love the addition of zesty flavors too. I love burrata but have only tried it about twice. The way you described it is utterly perfect–like a soft pocket of cheese literally encapsulating another cheese! Mmmmm <3

    This looks truly amazing Cynthia. I really can’t wait to get my own burrata right now and the combination with grilled peaches must be insanely good. Plus, I love love love your shots. The light, the scenery, the food; everything!

say hello!
