Kick Sugar Cookbook

I’ve had the wonderful good fortune of working on this, quite frankly, educational and inspiring cookbook with a few really lovely people.

James Goolnik, clinical director and founder of Bow Lane Dental Group in London is the mastermind behind this book.  Sick of repairing the damage done to teeth by sugar, James set up the Rewards Project, a charity dedicated to transforming the rewards culture. His mission is to change the way society rewards children with sugar for healthier alternatives and this cookbook is a 14 day challenge to kicking the sugar habit.  

Together with nutritional therapist Jenny Phillips, Chefs Giancarlo & Katie Caldesi and Food Stylist Clare Gray, we spent 4 long but enjoyable days creating the images for this cookbook.

The Brief:

To make the food look mouth watering and delicious!  Added to the brief were incidental images like food prep, herbs, spices and everyone’s portraits thrown in there too so it was an action packed 4 days! 

I have had the pleasure of working with Rebecca over five days during the filming of our charity cookbook- Kick Sugar. Most importantly the photographs were AMAZING but also she was a pleasure to work with and was full of great tips to make the food look as good on the screen as it was in real life. Rebecca also took some group shots for all my team and I could not be happier.
