Over the last couple of months I have been doing testings with photographers in order to get a food book together to send out to editors for work, I thought I would share some of them with you. These images were taken by Naomi McColloch a young, talented, Korean photographer.
This first image is of a piece of amazing farmstead cheese from my favorite cheesemongers Ann and Benoit at Saxelby cheese in the Essex street market, saxelbycheese.com and essexstreetmarket.com respectively. The chutney is a spicy Indian style mango chutney I made (I love chutney!)
This is one of my favorite ever tarts, it's from a recipe by Francois Payard, it's called Coco Mami and is a simple pineapple and coconut tart that is soooooo delicious!
Home made hazelnut praline ice cream with candied orange peel.
You might be wondering how oranges fit into my "local" philosophy. I will address this at length later but suffice to say there are always exceptions!
