A well-lit kitchen





Scenes my well-lit kitchen this week, as I work with a team of talented people in our house to cook, shoot and eat amazing food.  Well, it hardly seems like work to me...but it is.

The days start early to get the Rayburn blaring, the crew arrive to set up huge lights and the domestic espresso machine struggles to keep up with demand.  The days end late with tea towels to be washed, leftovers to be stashed (somewhere!) and recipe notes to be written up.

But my oh my.  Everyday I get to pimp my kitchen with vintage jars filled with herbs, flowers and foliage from the garden, and fill my stash of props with ingredients. Not to mention learning so, so much AND getting to taste absolutely delicious food.  It's so much fun.

Our well-lit kitchen now features an industrial bench that we've been dragging around since before Elsa was born. We think we might keep it in it's new spot permanently.

This project is for some online stuff....I'll let you know the details when it's ready...can't wait!
