Banoffee Pie Madness

by Matt on October 18, 2011

  One of the best things of being a food photographer is the access to new tastes, flavors and recipes. Because 100% of what we do at our studio is actually edible, you’ll find me on set most days asking this series of questions to Adam, my food stylist partner:   a)     I’ve got the [...]

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

by Matt on August 29, 2011

Tomorrow we’re heading to NYC for a few days. It’s what we call our Let’s-Go-To-NYC-And-See-Folks-And-Catch-Up kind of trip. I suppose that’s what’s called networking, right? We try to make the trip a few times a year, although this past year has flown by with work and travel and this is our first visit to the [...]


I woke up like I do any other morning, except for a nagging dream that came to me in my sleep and wouldn’t disappear until I did something about it. I needed to learn how to make pie. Now I have no idea where this came from. But the way the whole thing worked out [...]


Coquito For Christmas

by Matt on December 23, 2010

Last week while visiting with our banker (yes, there are some things you just have to actually go inside a bank branch, apparently) we got on the topic of food. Naturally. We were trading names of favorite restaurants, talking about the holidays, when our banker mentioned how he couldn’t wait to enjoy his family’s Christmas [...]


Alice’s New Classic Brownies

by Matt on December 14, 2010

Oh. No, really, oh. Oh as in “Oh my, these brownies”  and “Oh damn, these brownies.”  Oh as “Oh I can’t believe this recipe is so amazing” and “Oh there goes any bit of self control I had.” Get the picture? You can roll your eyes a bit when you say “Oh”.  It helps. Even [...]


Meyer Lemon Cupcakes

by Matt on November 25, 2010

Ok, well actually, that would be Meyer Lemon and Ricotta Cupcakes with White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. Whew! That’s a mouthful indeed, in more ways than one. I want to remind you of the Scharffen Berger Chococolate Adventure Contest, this time it’s all about cupcakes. And since I’m judging this contest next year I want to [...]


Butternut Squash Tarte Tatin

by Matt on November 24, 2010

Oh this little butternet squash tarte tatin, how much do I love you? Enough to have you three times over the past few weeks, all for the sake of “recipe testing”, you know. And honestly, this upside-down tart is probably one of the best things I’ve had all season, if I do say so myself. [...]


The Last Cobbler

by Matt on August 27, 2010

In a few days I’ll be hopping on another plane to a place that promises lots of good food, relaxation, sunshine and wine. It’s a trip we’ve been planning for a while, but what I wasn’t planning on was real life enveloping the weeks before and after this excursion. In this case real life means [...]


Meanwhile, over at The Cooking Channel…

by Matt on August 17, 2010

Hi folks! I’m not sure I announced it here but I’m so pleased to say that I’m a regular contributor to Cooking Channel’s Devour The Blog.  I’ve had the best time creating recipes that focus on real flavor, great ingredients with a built-in element of fun and flare (and this is because I always have [...]
