Late last year and for the first half of this year I was fortunate enough to be asked to work on a project by an ambitious and motivated friend of mine. She is Puerto Rican, as well as vegan, and is in the process of starting Casa Coqui, a Puerto Rican restaurant chain that is completely vegan and gluten-free. I did work on some menu development, but most of my involvement was in food styling and photography of this insanely delicious food. Below are some of the photos taken for the website, which you should definitely check out if you’re into delicious eats!
I’m so excited to be sharing this post with you today! Sometimes, it’s really hard to keep pictures for cookbooks under wraps until they are published and in stores, and Greens 24/7: More Than 100 Quick, Easy, and Delicious Recipes for Eating Leafy Greens and Other Green Vegetables at Every Meal, Every Day was definitely one of those books. I was fortunate enough to take the photos of Jess’s, of Cupcakes and Kale, first cookbook mid-2014; and it was one of my favorite large projects to date.
Jess’s food is colorful, balanced, delicious and imaginative, so it made it really easy to love cooking/styling/shooting these dishes. Here are just a few of my favorite shots from the book, as I wouldn’t want to spoil it for you. 😉
