No food book could be complete without the finishing touches, from vintage plates to pots and pans in all shapes and sizes, even down to the clothes I wear when shooting the recipes. There’s a lot more that goes into it than you think (check out this blog post to see more)!
Now the book is finally out and on book shelves in shops and virtually, I thought it would be nice to share some of my favourite props, clothes and trinkets with you all.
*1 – Anyone who’s been following me for a while will know I have a bit of a penchant for patterned tiles. We were fortunate enough to have some beautiful tiles donated by the kind folks at Fired Earth to use while shooting the book.
*2 – Ah Le Creuset. A staple of many a cook’s kitchen and for very good reason; you can’t go wrong with a set of their pans, they’re virtually indestructible! One of my favourite things are the mini casserole dishes, great for portioning out stews at dinner parties, serving soup and making pasta bakes look pretty. You can even use them to make many a sweet treat too.
*3 – I like to think of myself as a bit of a stationery aficionado and I’ve been a big fan of Present and Correct for a while now. Special thanks to Neal for sharing some of their beautiful bits and bobs with me. If you don’t know where to start, how about some of these lovely food-theme notecards?
The lovely people over at Penguin have teamed up with Present and Correct to offer one lucky person a chance to win their very kitchen notebook set. For full details of the competition and how to enter, head over to the Happy Foodie website.
*5 – I absolutely adore Leila’s General Store in Stockholm (see previous snapshots here), such a beautiful array of products. I recently bought myself a lovely retro green juicer last time I was there.
What’s your favourite thing you’ve spotted in the book so far? Let me know.
