A few more scenes from last week’s photo shoot. Here I am pulling a sweet potato souffle from the oven. It puffed up gloriously and went down the hatch scrumptiously!
The edges browned just the way I’d hoped they would and, having NOT folded the egg whites in as fastidiously as I had the previous evening when prepping for the shoot, the souffle baked up perfectly. Hot perfection in a bowl, folks.
Behind the scenes. I’ve always been intrigued by food photography and food styling and it was a real treat to see what the process of making food pretty for picture-taking involves.
The strange thing sneaking into the frame at the top left is a blowtorch, used to sizzle up these pumpkin creme brûlées. While I can’t share with you the final pictures (have to wait until publication next April), I can assure you that they are grand. You’ll be licking the page, without shame or remorse.
