I’m doing some fun workshops this year to help people with the basics of food styling and basic phone photography. Let’s face it almost everyone has a phone with a camera and they have it with them most of the time, so it’s quick & easy to use.
This topic could go on for ever & it’s also very personal too – What style of food photography do you like? What draws you to a picture in a recipe book, foodie magazine or to double tap on an instagram image? It’s important to develop your own style and it may not happen straight away, the first thing is to just start and have fun practicing too!!
2 images almost the same and each person will choose a different favourite for a different reason. Which one do you like the best and why?
This is just the start of what is to come, so stay tuned for more updates on this post…………..
Don’t tell me you have never heard of a “Truffle Off”?? Ok so I made it up, because my friend Rita & I both bought a 20g truffle at the same time & didn’t realise it so we decided to have a truffle off & cook as many different things as we could with our truffles. I will update my pics as I go through the delicious challenge. Bring it on!! YUM!! (If you need more truffle drooling see post from 2017 truffle season)
Hooray for truffle season!! I am in love with truffles, the aroma makes my head spin & my taste buds salivate. So what should you do with your truffle to get the most out of it? I just love truffle infused eggs for making the most delicious & decadent scrambled egg, it’s actually one of the only scrambled egg recipes I really enjoy 🙂
To infuse the eggs, place them together with the truffle in the fridge in a large glass jar with a lid & some paper towel. you should change the paper towel every day or so. I love this job because you get to smell the truffle again!! Aromatherapy to the max!! Truffles also go well with fresh pasta & I love making truffle butter to just simply spread on a piece of toasted sourdough bread!! This year i used some of my truffle infused eggs to make a steamed omelette!! Only the best omelette I’ve ever eaten!!
A few of the recipes I made this year are from The Truffle Cookbook. (The launch lunch of this cookbook is definitely in my top 3 meals of my life!! It was a truffle feast where I went into a truffle induced coma & had truffle oozing from my pores for the next day!!) I buy the 2nd’s truffles to keep the cost down & thankfully this year there was a 15% special due to them having such a good season!! Happy Days for me!! This truffle cost me $100 delivered (delivery was $20).
