Last week was spent in a verrrry fun shoot for Megan Gordon's upcoming cookbook, "Whole Grain Mornings" (Ten Speed Press) to be published late this year.
One of the hardest parts of a cookbook shoot, in my opinion, is waiting to share the photos that come out of it. In this particular shoot, that is definitely the case. Megan's book is full of delicious and tempting recipes for whole-grain breakfasts. Beyond the natural beauty of the food, the styling direction on this project was totally up my alley: lots of neutrals and earthy color pallets along with a natural and relaxed approach to the food styling. I am so proud of the photos from the shoot, and I cannot wait to share them here....many months from now when the book comes out.
In the meantime, here are a couple teasers taken on my phone. The first is of my awesomely talented food stylist, Julie, working her magic. The second is the aftermath from one of the most delicious recipes in the book, (I ate many of those fritters you see below.)
I must give a shout out to the fantastic team that was involved in this project: Megan, one of the most lovely people you could ever hope to meet, Betsy, art director extraordinaire, and Julie, the rockin' stylist who made everything look beautiful. I could not have asked for a better group with whom to collaborate. Also, thanks to Shannon, my wonderful intern who helped things run smoothly in about a million different ways. :)
