Around the World in 80 Dishes

There’s no denying that food and travel go hand in hand. One of the most exciting things about going abroad is experiencing exotic flavours and indulging in different foods that we’re not used to sampling back home. Today, many of us are fortunate enough to enjoy our favourite cuisines in our homelands, thanks to an abundance of international restaurants; but an increase in international food stores, as well as more global ingredients appearing in regular supermarkets, means it’s easier than ever before to re-create these much-loved meals from the comfort of our own kitchens. There’s nothing quite like serving up an aesthetically pleasing masterpiece and knowing you’re responsible for its heavenly aromas and rich flavours. Around The World In 80 Dishes is the ultimate companion for any foodie – a collection of the most mouth-watering recipes from every corner of the globe, including fascinating insights into their origins. The most difficult problem you’ll face will be deciding what to cook next!

Don’t Eat The Props

I never would have guessed that I would be a professional food photographer and stylist. I’ve always gravitated towards people and dramatic costumes and makeup as my muses. I quickly learned that I can have just as much creative flair with food and, also have a subject that doesn’t talk back or cancel a session. It does, however, expire.

My advice to those starting out is to find and make as many of your props and surfaces as you can. You also don’t need brand new equipment or gear. If you do your research, you can find good deals on used equipment or even rent before you buy to see what you like. Some of the surfaces I like to shoot with the most are ones I’ve made myself. They are also guaranteed to be unique.
