A Kate and Guy How To: This Sunday

A few weeks ago Ian and Shelley, of The Farm Cooking School, asked us to teach a little class on food styling and photography. “OK, let’s do it!” we said. And suddenly it is happening this Sunday, Dec. 7! Are we ready? We are now. It’s going to be super fun and here’s why…  we will look […]

Late-May Mash Up

BE GRATEFUL. That is what we wrote on a piece of paper and taped to our wall last week. It will stay there, as a reminder. We are happy to have a lot going on (a new studio soon, a new book in the works, a cool smoked fish shoot coming up in June, fun […]

Kick-ass ice-cream

Where: The Bent Spoon, Princeton, NJ Who: Gabrielle Carbone and Matt Errico Why: Its their 10 year Anniversary this week! Go get some ice-cream. I am not sure if we have mentioned that we used to live in Santa Fe, NM, and Sicily, and New York, and, yes!, in Brooklyn too. But we have landed here […]

Another cookbook…

worth having. Publishes today! The New Cast Iron Skillet Cookbook, by Ellen Brown. Published by Sterling Epicure. Photographed by Guy and styled by Kate. We photographed this book a while ago but still remember many of these delicious recipes. (I think we just made the Irish soda bread in March!) Here’s a sneak peek to get you […]

birthdays

We seem to know a lot of people who have birthdays in early April. Sometimes we get to make them cake. Birthday boy: Gordon Years around the sun: 28 Cake: Flourless chocolate with a spritz of Meyer lemon zest—why not?—from Canal House Cooks Every Day  

People Eating: Elio

I like pictures of beautiful food. I like beautiful pictures of food. But what is meant to happen to that food? Hopefully it will be eaten, enjoyed, appreciated; happily. This is something I want to start seeing more of. It should be an interesting challenge because who wants a picture of himself eating? I started […]

(un)intentional

When Guy and I met, I remember being surprised by a collection of dried-up tea bags tacked up along one wall of his kitchen. A tiny art installation, made of an ordinary thing that I had thrown out thousands of time, turned lovely by focus… One of my favorite food photos that Guy ever took […]

Outtakes: Applegate

The past few weeks we have been shooting a lot for Applegate. Looking through the library of images we came across many pictures that may never see the light of a computer screen but that we think are interesting and fun: details, trays of ingredients, raw chicken, kooky old animal toys… Sorry, no intellectual or […]

Working behind the scenes

This is where the text will go… and here it goes… We just finished up a project that involved Kate developing 50 recipes and me photographing them. That was fun, among many other adjectives. But let’s try to be more descriptive, as we tell Elio to be instead of just using one word. Let’s say […]
