VEGAN GREEN GODDESS SAUCE RECIPE IN COLLABORATION WITH GEM® AVOCADO

VEGAN GREEN GODDESS SAUCE RECIPE IN COLLABORATION WITH GEM® AVOCADO

Disclosure: This is a paid advertorial with GEM® Avocado. All opinions expressed in this blog post are my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.

For me the best recipes are easy, vegan, quick and SO good, you can’t help but make them again and again and again! Today’s vegan green goddess sauce recipe, which I’ve developed in collaboration with GEM® Avocado, fits this criteria perfectly. It’s the kinda, throw-it-together-last-minute-sauce that ALWAYS comes out tasting delicious, even if you get a few of the measurements wrong, swap one herb for another, or add some extra pepper for good measure. It’s not precious or precise, though I’ve written it down in the best version that I know so that you can make the green goddess sauce, tinker with it and then make it even better ;).

VEGAN APPLE MUESLI MUFFINS IN COLLABORATION WITH DEEMUESLI

When there is so much of everything already on the food market, how do you stand out? By making something so delicious and nourishing that everyone takes note! That’s exactly what the Belgium-based wife and husband team behind new muesli brand DEEMUESLI did when they came up with their two scrumptious muesli flavours. Tired of never finding organic, sugar-free, wheat-free muesli that was as delicious as it was filling, the couple took matters into their own hands and developed THE ultimate muesli worth waking up for.

WHAT HAPPENS AT A FOOD STYLING AND FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP?

WHAT HAPPENS AT A FOOD STYLING AND FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP?

After months of talking about it and planning like crazy behind the scenes the 2-day food styling and food photography workshop I ran with Aimee from Twigg Studios PLUS the 1-day small business mastermind I facilitated with Sorrel Roberts came and went in a flash. It was the most international group of eager food photography students and small business owners yet - with attendees coming to my cosy London studio from Slovakia, Dubai, Morocco, Denmark, Canada and the USA as well as good old London ;). How cool is that?!? :) To be honest, I could not have asked for a better group of fellow creatives and food lovers to hang out with over those three days. Want to see what happened over the course of the workshop?

In the INSTAGRAM SERIES I've touched on subjects such as how to get paid for posting content on instagramhow the algorithms really work and is your instagram account worth following.

How much should an instagram influencer slash content creator earn? How much should we charge for our work as photographers, food writers, stylists? It's a question I get asked quite a lot and one that recently came up inside my creative community. I've written about the topic before, more broadly, but that blog post feels like ages ago and hence a few years older and wiser, I thought I'd tackle the question again on instagram and here on my blog AKA my home turf.

EASY VEGAN TOFU SATAY BOWL + WHY SIMPLICITY IN FOOD IS EVERYTHING

Today I'm writing about food on instagram, why simplicity in food is everything and why I do what I do as part of my 3-day Saveur Awards countdown. However, if you're here for the delicious vegan tofu satay recipe, I don't blame you. Just scroll down to the very end to find what you're looking for ;). 

WHEN INSTAGRAM BECAME THE HOME OF FOOD PORN

When Instagram launched in October 2010 it was all about sharing instant shots of yourself in the here and now. Think polaroids for the online, digital age. Posting candid, real shots is exactly what instagram pioneers did, that is, until they didn't anymore.

ROASTED GRAPES WITH THYME RECIPE + THE THING ABOUT SAVEUR

ROASTED GRAPES WITH THYME RECIPE + THE THING ABOUT SAVEUR

WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD START A FOOD BLOG IN 2014, 2017 OR WORST STILL 2018?

It's that very question we all ask ourselves when we sign our names on the dotted line and commit to squarespace for a 12 month period. Why do we ask ourselves this question? Because the odds are stacked against us. The chances of anyone seeing anything we produce on our food blog are pretty low and the chances of 'making it' as a food blogger even slimmer.

As an avid home cook and a food photographer everything starts with great food and a great work surface. If you think of it from the home cook's perspective if makes sense, right? Your ingredients have got to be right to create the dish you crave, but you also need a reliable, sturdy worksurface that makes the preparation process smooth and easy.

As a food photographer those two thing matter just as much - it's hard to shoot beautiful images if the food doesn't look right. And as for the worksurface it is ALWAYS a major consideration when I think about the mood and feel of a food photography image. It's the foundation from which I build my scene and tell my story. In fact if you read this blog post, this one and this one you'll know how incredibly important surfaces are in food photography and food styling.

With soooo much choice of stunningly curated feeds and insanely gorgeous pictures, how on earth do we decide to take the leap and click the FOLLOW button on instagram? Is our decision to follow an instagram account much more complex than all these popular articles acknowledge? Or will a little hashtag make or break me on my favourite app after all?!
