Behind the Scenes: Cookbook Cover Photo Shoot

Behind the Scenes: Cookbook Cover Photo Shoot

Friends, I am very excited to let you know that the work on my first cookbook is progressing! We recently had a cover photo shoot session.

My friend Viktoria, who has the sharpest eyes and is great with food styling, helped me style the dish we chose for the cover. Alan De Herrera, an amazing food photographer, took the photos. A myriad of them, so we could choose the winner. I would have never thought that a photo shoot for one single cover could take this much time—the time and energy we put into the work was tremendous! We all were exhausted at the end of the session, but agreed that the result was well worth it! We have the cover photo now! Thank you, Alan and Viktoria.

Here’s a glimpse at our photo shoot. Stay tuned for more updates!

Lights, camera, action!

Hmm, let me see how it turned out.

Food stylist to the rescue! Viktoria giving a new life to the dish before the next shoot.
