Southern California Vegan Eats

Being vegan in Southern California has some serious perks. There are new restaurants, pop-ups, and vegan options appearing all over, all of the time! Here are some photos of recent food field trips around the area. You can find even more food pics/info on my instagram!

Eaternity Cookbook

Eaternity: More than 150 Deliciously Easy Vegan Recipes for a Long, Healthy, Satisfied, Joyful Life by Jason Wrobel

It’s nearly time for Eaternity: More than 150 Deliciously Easy Vegan Recipes for a Long, Healthy, Satisfied, Joyful Life by Jason Wrobel to be released out into the wild! This is great for several reasons: Jason is an amazing person and has great recipes, the book is gorgeous between the layout and design, and lastly, because I was fortunate enough to take the food photos for this beautiful creation.

Jason’s superfood-filled recipes are colorful, delicious and fun to shoot; which makes it easier on me as the food stylist and photographer. I also had the privilege of having Michelle Marquis, aka The Alchemist Chef, as an assistant on this project. Her help and presence was priceless and made this project a joy to work on.

The book is officially out April 5th and I highly recommend that you get your hands on a copy! Below are some of my favorites from the 80 recipes that I shot.

 

Casa Coqui

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!

Greens 24/7 Cookbook

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. 😉
