Behind the Scenes at the Khoollect Studio

The Khoollect Studio has been used for a whole bunch of exciting projects recently. I love seeing it being used in such a creative way – it’s really everything I dreamed of when planning the layout and design of the place. From YouTube videos to cooking demonstrations, recipe photoshoots, and more – it’s such a versatile space to work in.

The first shoot at the studio was for my very own cookbook, The Little Swedish Kitchen, with the brilliant David Loftus, my right-hand lady (food stylist Frankie Unsworth) and the talented team at Penguin Random House.

Showcasing the little garden nook at Khoollect Studio, the team created a collection of summer recipes for the Joule Sous Vide by ChefSteps. I love how the outdoor worktop makes it feel like an extension of the kitchen (thanks for the tip, Kate!) – perfect for alfresco dining too!

To celebrate the launch of my new cookbook, I worked with the wonderful Swedish brand, Clas Ohlson, to host a cooking demonstration for some of my friends on social media. We made use of the kitchen island (ideal for demos!) and the outdoor space, which was beautifully decorated by Aesme Flowers.

Frankie Unsworth (food stylist and Khoollect’s food editor) created a series of promotional how-to videos for her debut cookbook, The New Art of Cooking. Grab your journal and watch them over on the Bloomsbury YouTube channel!

Video Shoots
Various Youtube and Promotional Videos

As well as photoshoots, the Khoollect Studio is perfect for videography for demonstrations and promotional videos. You might have noticed that I’ve added some new videos to my YouTube channel featuring some of my favourite recipes from The Little Swedish Kitchen.

The Khoollect Studio is a daylight photography studio in North West London. The studio is fitted out with a beautiful kitchen (complete with island for workshops/demonstrations), outdoor area, workstation and coffee area. The studio is available for photography shoots, filming, workshops, demonstrations and selected events. Get in touch for rates and availability: [email protected]
