Food Palette: Winter Persimmons

I’ve always been fascinated by this illusion: place one color next to another, and watch it take on new meaning and intensity. Color inspiration can come from anywhere – textiles, everyday objects, nature, and of course, food. For my post series Food Palettes, I explore how the color of food can be both appetizing and creatively stimulating.

This week I spied some particularly lovely persimmons at my local grocery. Such a beautiful and underrated fruit! There’s an almost velvety texture to their tight skin that’s very regal and old-world. When I look at them I can imagine dining with nobility in centuries of yore!
