Back to food with a few still lives around winter vegetables. I found this beautiful scale at a car boot sale recently and couldn’t wait to shoot it. But first I had to get the right background, which was solved with this wood table that I built from wood pieces picked up in the street (the finishing oil gives it a really lovely colour). And obviously the vegetables had to look really good. I went to Panzers in Saint John’s Wood for inspiration as they are renowned for always having great looking products. I wasn’t disappointed, the artichokes especially were amazing. Naturally you would wonder what to do with so many vegetables left over (onions in particular, I had bought tons of them). With my parents coming for dinner, I thought I’d try a new recipe. I made a pot-roast beef with French onion gravy, which received more praises than I ever had! You can find the recipe here.
