Styling with Local Milk !

Food Styling, I've just discovered, is actually a foreign concept to me.  Go figure?

I cook a dish, I photograph it, and then I devour it.

The problem with this little method of mine, for me personally, is that I'm usually so hungry by the photographing stage that I give no time to styling the shot or developing the story.  I simply take a few quick snaps and Bob's your uncle.  Voila!

"THE" Pie !

I have that wonderful Nina Simone song playing over and over in my head....Tomorrow is My Turn.

And in particular, the line "We all like the right to find the key to success".  It's a theme that's been personally turning around in my head for a little while now and I can tell you with complete and utter certainty that the talented people behind the catering company Fig and Salt have already found it.

This pie was my proof!

Do you remember?
