Way back in November I had great pleasure in taking part in Easy Food Magazine’s Home Cook Hero Awards. I was delighted to be awarded Best Burger for my Indian Lambo burger as well as the overall prize of Dish of the Year. With the competition opening soon for the 2014 awards, I recently headed up the country to take part in a photo shoot with photographer Jocasta Clarke and stylist, Aysecan Tufecioglu. Under the guiding hand of these two talented ladies my food never looked prettier or more mouthwatering! It was enlightening to see how each shot is put together for a magazine. For a long time I was blissfully unaware of the artful precision required to make each photograph look so utterly tantalising. The experience was also great fun and a real insight into what happens behind the scenes! The Home Cook Hero Awards were a delight to be involved with from start to finish and I would advise anyone considering entering to just go for it.
