Top Hat Photoshoot

So. I haven't been blogging that much lately. Partly that's because I've been busy and haven't been cooking as much at home. And partly it's because a big part of my job is blogging about food! I run the Top Hat Catering blog and all the online content (facebook, twitter, pinterest, etc) for the company. So I've been getting my online blogging foodie fix through my job which is awesome.

I'm loving my job right now. Last week we did a gorgeous photoshoot of some of our best starters, main dishes and delicious desserts. And I just need to share because I'm really happy with the images we produced.

I'm really proud of how these photos came out. I think I'm getting better with the company camera (an amazing Canon SLR beast) and learning how to get the best shots from it. For this one of Roasted Quail on Spring Vegetable Salad I fashioned a simple but elegant table setting in natural light and I think it came out beautifully - honestly the camera did all the work.

I've been taking photographs for Top Hat Catering for the last year and so far I'm really chuffed with what we've accomplished. I've been working with Mega Head Chef Janine who makes delicious food that looks beautiful and together we have been gradually updating Top Hat's image gallery. It's looking really good. Check it out if you don't believe me. This Aged Fillet Steak with Pont Neuf Potatoes was another favourite.

I think this shot is my overall fave. A wonderfully smooth and luxurious Dark Chocolate Tart with Gold Leaf. And yes, it tasted as delicious as it looks (ahem, we got to chow down on all this food after the shoot...)

Loving my job right now.
