This shot is a simple study of fruits and lavender in ice, showcasing the vibrant and refreshing colours of late Spring/early Summer. Tiny segments of orange, lemon, kiwi fruit and and lavender heads were frozen in normal tap water to give the opaque finish.
Short ribs has always been one of my very favorite things to eat. I had it first at The Test Kitchen in Cape Town a few years ago when I worked there as a waiter. One of the chefs made it for the staff one afternoon and I was instantly hooked.
Star anise is the true the star of this dish in my book. Though subtle, magic happens when it simmers away in the stout and beef juices.
I work with natural light and a documentary approach to all my food photography, so this image was captured in realtime, as Chef Joshua Overington plated his dessert for our photoshoot. His stunning creation is poached pear in a nougatine crust, faisselle normande and Corsican chestnut honey ice cream, for Le Cochon Aveugle in York, UK. It was delicious!
'Urban Plates' is the new-age style eatery that's become super popular in Southern California. Boasting of daily scratch-made fresh salads, soups, sandwiches and entree plates with Artisan drinks, this brand new La Jolla eatery was a definite pit stop on the opening weekend. The Vegetarian Seasonal soup of corn and peppers was as delightfully flavored as it looked. Of course, was awesome fun clicking this cup of warm comfort food.
This refreshing salad with quinoa, melon, chili and cilantro is my favorite side dish with lamps skewer. I spread them with some basil oil – that's how summer is supposed to taste.
Me and my colleague, Erica Angelone, are running our blog www.krautundrueben.ch since 3 years. We're producing our posts at home and we're foodies, but not professionals in food photography. We're producing our blog post in our homes under real live conditions, with hungry dogs and curious boys...
In the end of the day, our recipes have to be simple and for everyone. We're foodies with passion but also for nice food photography and simple recipes. We love to cook, to receive, to taste and we enjoy food, live and the precious moments with friends and family.
One of the most important elements of enjoying food is knowing that it looks so tasty. This turkey and avocado wrap represents the simple combination of ingredients that are required to make a delicious snack, and the black and white contrasting effect on the image only emphasises the bright colour of this summery food. Its great to remember that a healthier option can look and taste yummy too!
This photograph was taken at our favourite St Andrews lunch venue Blackhorn, who specialise in creating beautiful handmade burgers, wraps and salads using only fresh and local produce.
A friend of mine asked me if I would be interested in photographing food for Kone Restaurant on South Beach, Miami, Fl for their website and menu. I had never photographed food before, so I jumped at the opportunity. This photo was taken outside on a table using natural light.
Pumpkin stuffed with fall vegetables came as an unexectedly delicious meal - something perfect for that time of a year when we want to eat our favourite comfort food and spend all days on a sofa. And that was exactly what we were looking for as we were working on recipes for the cookbook - I'm super happy I could be a part of this project!
I wanted to create summer to the plate.
In Finland we eat quite a lot fish in the summer time. Smoked salmon is one of the most popular dishes. So, the salmon is the hero of the dish, I created "grass" from tatsoi and baby rucola with some eateble flowers to boost the feeling. Shot with one flash and couple of flags and reflectors.
Grapefruit Chicken.To BBQ or not to BBQ. That is the question.
Fire means flavor and can transform the simplest meals into a memory that lasts forever. Not everybody has the time to build a fire and wait for coals though, and these fancy grilling machines costs a lot of money, but there are simpler ways to get that charred effect.
I bought a griddle pan and use it all the time and it has literally transformed the way I cook.
This roasted chicken I made last night was one of the most delicious things I have ever made (if I may say so myself) and it took no time to prepare.
