I love Sophie Dahl cookbooks, so this weekend’s Cookbook Review is Sophie Dahl’s From Season To Season.
I love that she divides her chapters into seasons and starts with Autumn… my favourite season, mainly because its all about scarves and boots for me. The lighting on the photography is very natural showing that shadows are equally important as light. The food styling is very honest, not overly messy but still very natural. The propping is very lovely, lots of textures – sometimes lovely fabrics other times old scarred chopping boards or a wooden surface. The plates and fabrics are a mix of old and new… not to vintage but they have a nice retro, homely feel.
On the whole it’s a lovely book, I don’t cook from it much but I do enjoy the photos and the nostalgic stories that she writes to go along with the recipes.
