Note: This drawing is now closed. One of the things I love about Fall are the new cookbooks. On this same day in 2009 I was on a photoshoot for the next cookbook by the acclaimed Jean Anderson. That’s not too intimidating. It’s not like she’s a legend or anything… Truth be told, at the time Jean didn’t think we needed too many photos in the book. I’m a big fan of food photography, so I asked her to trust me, and now we’re all thrilled with the results. Falling off the Bone was just published, and the photos are mouthwatering. These are actually all my own snapshots from the shoot, but I’m getting so hungry as I look them over and write this.
Thanks go to stylist Lynda White for the amazing props. How lucky were we that we got to play with all this awesome stuff? The real photos in the book were taken by the uber-talented Jason Wyche. You can check out a few of his shots (and some yummy recipes from the book) here.
And of course that’s the skilled Simon Andrews doing the prop styling. (He’s definitely not as serious as he looks in that photo.)
Yum, right? With all that great styling, even my snapshots look a little awesome. Not a lot of people are reading my new blog yet, but I’m doing a giveaway for a copy of Falling off the Bone anyway, if you just post a comment to be entered in the drawing. (U.S. residents only for the giveaway, but feel free to say hi even if you live elsewhere.) Good luck.
