TOFU AVOCADO SALAD IN COLLABORATION WITH SAPIENSTONE (AD) + FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY BACKDROPS PART 4

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.

WATERMELON AND BEETROOT SALAD RECIPE + A COOKBOOK GIVEAWAY!

Did you know that The Little Plantation is actually a vegan food photography blog ;p!!! I know, I've been consistently creating content for the blog these past few months BUT blog posts containing vegan recipes have taken a major backseat during the Spring/Summer period with me focusing instead on sharing food photography tips and instagram tips and hosting the Spring instagram food photography challenge

The good news: I'm FINALLY breaking the vegan recipes ''dry spell'' today with this FANTASTIC simple and easy summer watermelon and candy beetroot salad recipe. I found the recipe in best selling author Nina Olsson's new cookbook Feast of Veg, and instantly knew I needed to make it for the blog! Better still, you can WIN a copy of it this week! Want to find out more and discover what the book is like? Cool, then please read on....

VEGAN YOGI BOWL + A COOKBOOK GIVEAWAY! (GF, NF, V+)

There are probably 1000s of cookbooks on the market and being a plant-based foodie and food blogger, I've come accross loads in my time. To be honest after a while, they all start to look the same and there are few books that truly stand out. But in the cluttered cookbook section of any good bookstore, Cassandra Bodzak's vegan cookbook 'Eat with Intention' WILL stand out; in fact for me it already does which is why I'm delighted to be hosting a giveaway of her book this week, as well as sharing my own adaptation of her delicious Vegan Yogi Bowl recipe.
