A whole week of cupcakes… don’t mind if I do! These are my Lavender Cupcake, topped with handpicked Lavender from the Hitching Lavender fields. I mixed the icing colour myself by using pink and blue (to match my hair colour) into a basic cream cheese icing recipe.
What a great day to celebrate! Indulge!
Make the most of figs whilst they are beautifully juicy and in season. There are lots of lovely recipes on the interest to inspire you, I’ve made a tasty dish of figs halved and cooked for 10 mins in the oven and served warm with Camembert cheese, honey, fresh thyme and walnuts. Y.U.M!
September is sourdough month a campaign organised by the Real Bread Campaign with the aim to encourage more people to bake or buy sourdough. Give it a try… dunked in oil and vinegar or simply with butter.
Finally my favourite month has arrived!
Just realised I haven’t posted in over a week…sorry! Last week was crazy busy, as is this week.
So one of my jobs last week was shooting the new Chiquito’s menu. We shot it in one of their restaurants, whilst diners sat around us having their breakfast, lunch and dinners! Chef cooked it fresh as it would be served in the restaurant and David the food stylist gave each dish a few tweaks here and there just to make sure it looked perfect yet remaining authentic. Lovely job, wonder colours and textures.
Here’s a couple of their dishes – Tacos and Enchiladas, and a phone snap of the restaurant.
It’s gone all cold and rainy here, where has summer gone?! There’s only one thing to do to make a grey day like today cheerful… have some bright green, cosy, warm pea soup 😀
Last week I had the privilege of working with and shooting the talented Michelin starred Tanner Brothers. I shot the plated food and behind the scenes in the kitchen, as well as people enjoying the food.
This was one of my favourite shots from the shoot… I love the steam, the rustic setting and the drama of the shot.
Today in National Watermelon Day in the US but it looks like we too have adopted it here in the UK. Watermelons are available in all the supermarkets at the moment and only £2 for a whole one, they are tasting super sweet right now so are delicious just chopped up and eaten as they are, but it you get a little bored of they try this little recipe…. Feta cheese, balsamic glaze and fresh mint…YUM!
