I have a secret.... I love photographing beautifully displayed food. When I'm at an event, and the catering staff has a perfectly manicured food display, I can't help myself - I have to photograph it. What I LOVED about this project with Great Point Kitchen and Events was that I was allowed to style the food as well. And LeNan, owner and head cook, not only has delicious food, but she also has a photographer's dream of styling boards and plates.
We taste food with our sense of smell and then our sense of sight before our the food hits our tastebuds. Great Point Kitchen and Events is a catering company that services Central Ohio. She has a fun story behind the name - but I'm not going to spoil it when you can go read about it on her website. ;)
I met LeNan at an event last July. Her food was so pretty that I couldn't help but photograph it. After sending her photographs of her food displays, she asked if I would come up to her home and photograph a few new items for her menu. And this is what we did together. (And yes, I got to taste all of it too - BONUS!!).
Above is a Mushroom Soup... the perfect necessity for a cold winter's day. And below is a Caprese salad (left), and Green Beans with Mushrooms (right).
Mmmm, homemade Mac & Cheese (above); and two varieties of stuffed mushrooms (below). I might have had more than my share of the mushrooms - but I couldn't help it, they were so good!!
