Zongzi or also known as Bacang, is one popular Chinese rice cake dumpling. Heaps of glutinous rice filled with meat, sausage, salted egg yolk, mushrooms, water chestnut then wrapped with bamboo leaves into tetrahedron shape.
I like to imagine the zongzi among traditional Chinese or Oriental props. So I styled the zongzi traditionally with vintage china and bamboo containers. The vintage china and stacked bamboo basket were passed down from both my grandmothers.

Salsa Borracha "Drunken Salsa" from my mom's family recipe.
It's a traditional salsa in Mexican cuisine, usually served with queso fresco or sliced avocado.
Made with roasted Pasilla Chiles, tomatoes, onion, garlic and the addition of some alcohol, some recipes call for pulque, tequila or beer. The alcohol is cooked off and gives it a delicious flavor.
The image was created to illustrate the recipe from my mom's book.

I call this photo my green goodness. I am a lover of monochromatic scenes and as part of one of my recent courses with Rachel Korinek, I was inspired by one of her photos featuring greens so much that I decided to have a go at creating a chromatic scene myself.
This is my homemade Blue Matcha Ice Cream. I used dried Butterfly Pea Flowers, removed the stems, milled the flowers and created Blue Matcha powder to use in the recipe. It has a very different taste and there is something satisfying about creating something unique from scratch. I scattered the Butterfly Pea Flowers in the scene and placed the spoon diagonally to draw the viewer to the bowl where the hero food sits. This was shot with a very large aperture and natural light.
