While flicking through my photos and sorting and backing them up, I love finding little series like this one of crayfish with a cheese sauce, to see how I faffed about to get the dish looking like I want it for the final photo to go in my book Seafood Everyday.
It is a lot of work -cooking, styling and photographing to get all 80 of the the recipe photos how I want them for the book and a endless hunt for new and unique props. I am currently loving all the handmade Tasmanian props I own or that are kindly lent to me for photos- pictured here from Sea Soul Studio and Linen from Yolanda Zarins, with a Ridgeline pottery plate. Self publishing a cookbook is a lot of work but it is also rewarding to be able to have full creative control over your book.
And the location photos are fun, Arwen and I had lots of fun setting up a breakfast at the tessellated Pavement in Eaglehawk Neck any excuse to drink lovely wine at 8am on a Monday morning!!
I am thrilled with the response to this book, here is a story published in The Mercury last weekend.
you can order your copy here or purchase it at bookshops, Fullers, Dymocks and other outlets such as The Bangor Wine and Oyster shed, Tassal Salmon shop, Mures, The Murdunna store and Havneabite in Eaglehawk neck.
