continuing with the Food Photography topic we´ve been on lately, today I
bring to you photographs of something really delicious and, actually,
quite simple to prepare: Lemon Chickenwith Fine Herbs.
As usual, you may find the recipe on cooking websites or over at Gichef's Blog; but here, you can check out the photographs I shot, both, before the chicken was cooked and after.
I believe the Fine Herbs give the Lemon Chicken dish a whole new look
and, even, kind of a fine look. You can easily cook this to entertain at diner
parties and appear as an amazing cook and host.
year, my sister has been baking a lot as we are spending most of our
time home and well, you gotta kill the boredom somehow, right? One of
the things she has baked more often are cupcakes, with many different recipes, hence, many, many variants of them in both, flavor and looks.
For this season, she decided to bake some cupcakes for her friends as Christmas presents;
needless to say, they were quite popular, and delicious of course, but
also, very pretty looking. This time, chocolate was the cake flavor for
all of them and, as for the frosting goes, for some of them, she tried
some simple icing; some butter and some chocolate. For some others, she
tried with some fondant, which was cool because she was able to add some
writing and little drawings in some of them in order to personalize
them and make them an even nicer present.
of the coolest things about cupcakes, is that you can get a thousand
combinations to play around with the cake flavor and the
frosting/icing/topping, so you can get many original variations for each
special occasion or just for fun.
In the end, all of the effort was worth it and the cupcakes ended up looking (and tasting!) amazing! If you wanna get some cupcakes, Gichefis up for catering for
your party, special occasion, or simple guiltless gluttony, so feel
free to contact her! And if you actually bake your own and want to get
some Professional Photographs of them, contact me!
Once you have tried French Macarons (the Parisian ones, the real deal) is kind of hard not to be obsessed about them, especially if you're into French Patisserie. My personal favorites, although probably not as worldly famous as the Pierre Hermé ones, are the ones from Huré, which slogan is "Createur de Plaisir"...and OMG, aren't they real pleasure creators! But well, we're only focusing on Macarons today.
So, me and my sister are totally obsessed about them, so much we decided to try to make our own coz, you know, you cannot be traveling to Paris everytime you feel like having macarons!
We went through a ton of recipes and watched many, many videos, after which, we almost felt like it was too easy to make them...wrong! It seems way easier than it really is, however, for our first attempt, I don't think it was THAT bad...I mean, it could have been worse.
Here is the visual documentation of our attempt. I don't put up the recipe here because you can easily find it online or you can always go to Gichef's Blogto find it.
Stay tuned for our future attempts which, hopefully, will turn out (almost) like the real deal!
