This ‘Weekend Cook Book Review’ is the wonderful Small Plates & Sweet Treats by Aran Goyoaga. This book is one of my all time favourites, Aran’s food styling is so inspiring, every shot is absolutely beautiful.
I first came across Aran’s work from her beautiful award winning blog Cannelle et Vanille, which she started in Jan 2008. Aran is a freelance food writer, stylist and photographer, her blog is filled with her own (gluten-free) recipes and photography.
Aran also runs amazing food photography/styling workshops all over the world in really inspiring locations, teaching people about the subject in locations which really enhance the photography by helping to tell the story of the food… you really need to check out her blog. Her lighting is always very bright and natural. Her styling is stunning, very honest, lots of crumbs and delicate use of scattered herbs that never feel over styled they just look like they have naturally fallen in there place… I love it, this is one of the book I carry around in my props bag.
