Sweet Tooth..who me?
Who doesn't love a desert? It's often hard to fit one in I will admit but when you can and it's good, there's no better way to finish a meal except maybe a glass of sticky wine! It's this reason with my love of deserts that I wanted to share with you the series of the "Last Bite" pages for Food & Wine Magazine. As I mentioned in a previous post, It was so great to see one of these images used as the current January 2010 cover, but this was actually the last of a series, the last 4 months.
I was lucky to be asked to contribute to the next 4 months as of February, so look out for those. Of course on the shoots I get to try everything so after 4 deserts in a day, It can be a sugar high baby! No wonder I look forward to the next batch.
For these images we work to a very specific palette for each month, this is based on what is appropriate seasonally, what is in the rest of the issue color wise and we always try and give them a luxe aspirational look, a little sparkle here and there never goes astray!
These great pics were shot by Con Poulos.
