So here it is, the full spread from my last shoot with Maria magazine. And I am very sad to say it will be our last shoot with the magazine as it recently announced that it will no longer be published, like so many others. I loved working with Yvette (recipe writer + food stylist) and Jeroen (photographer), and I would really like to keep working with them as we make a great team. So, if anyone out there needs a fab food production team, please email me. Yvette and I have a number of awesome stories suitable for international publication that we are itching to produce, and if you'd like to see our previous work please click here, here, here and here.
This shoot, as Yvette mentioned in her post in the (blog)house kitchen, was shot at her mother's beautiful home. I had just arrived back from sunny Sydney and had developed an horrific flu. I was barely able to walk, it was the middle of winter here, and I needed to create a Springy atmosphere! in the freezing cold! The pressure was on... but I made it through the day! with thanks to Yvette and Ms. v. Boven helping me through with plenty of hot cups of herbal tea while I stood outside with Jeroen "creating Spring". By the end of the day I flopped onto the couch while Yvette and her mum cleaned up. I felt so guilty for not helping! But I was in no shape to do so and they wouldn't let me. Bless their little cotton socks!
Here is what we produced, I do hope you like...
I will tell you more about the menu and the story of the shoot next week, with some behind the scenes. For now, I give you these, and two of the recipes in English, posted in the (blog)house kitchen with many thanks to Yvette.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! I am going to indulge in a computer-free weekend myself, which I will be sure to tell you all about next week. I will also be gorging on chocolate, but what's new! Lately it's with no thanks to Green & Black's making the most delicious easter eggs ever.
See you back here on Tuesday, mes chers amis!
