To kick this year off (happy new year everybody, by the way), started off with going to Star Provisions to shoot a quick dish for Chefs Feed. Joined their team back in Q2/Q3 of 2012 and it’s been a fun ride so far, looking forward to more delicious shoots! If you havent checked out the app yet, please do. It’s a great tool to find some great eats locally.
The assignment was of Star Provision’s Salami Bread; recommended by Chef Ford Fry from such awesome restaurants like JCT Kitchen, No246, and titled by Esquire Magazine, “Best New Restaurant in America,” The Optimist. If he thinks this self-contained salami/cheese consumable is good, it is worth checking out. The shoot was a quick 30-45 minutes to find the optimal lighting, plate and capture the image. After, they heated up the salami bread and I got to eat it! Nothing gets wasted~ Such is the benefit of shooting the food as you would see it. No fake food or mash potatoes for ice cream here.
The Salami bread was awesome though. A great outer crust with a hot cheese and thin sliced salami on the inside. I was decently full after just eating half, got the rest to go. Had a quick chat with one of the workers behind the counter and was convinced to try their brownie. Made sure to snap a photo before I took a quick bite and took it also to go for later. It was definitely worth it. 🙂
