One of my favorite parts of my new job is that I get to not only work in social media, but since I do social media for the hospitality industry, there’s always a whole lot of food surrounding us! Whether it’s an opening party for a restaurant, a cocktail affair with new & exciting drinks by our in-house mixologist, or a request form our PR agency for BBQ recipes for the summer – it’s a delicious job and for the past five months I’ve been loving it!
With summer quickly approaching, this recipe comes from Chef Caleb Lara, the executive chef at the Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown, Martha’s Vineyard.
Chipotle BBQ Pork Ribs are one of chef’s favorite recipes to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather and I had the pleasure of shooting this photos alongside him!
Not only were these ribs fun to photograph, but they tasted incredibly amazing – Chef Caleb Lara makes both an awesome chipotle barbecue sauce as well as his own spice rub for the ribs, making these extra flavorful!
