The Year In Food » Fine Seasonal Eating

Hello, friends! Here’s a selection of images from Samin Nosrat’s most recent Tartine Afterhours. If you’d like to see some front of house images, you can take a gander at a few from a dinner I attended last year. This time around, I hid out in the kitchen most of the evening. It was SO FUN. And inspiring. I’m amazed by the stamina of people who spend their evenings in kitchens. It’s hard work. Thanks for letting me hang out, Samin!

    Wow!Everything looks great, but I especially like the potential of the tart.. Is that spinach?ReplyCancel

    @susan! Not a secret at all – I use a Canon 5d Mark ii and mostly the 24-70/2.8 lens.
    @Holly: That tart is called a torta pasqualina! Samin talks about it a little more on her website if you follow the Tartine Afterhours link. And yes, spinach!ReplyCancel

    Many thanks for your info Kimberley! I know that capturing a great image has more to it than just the equipment(but..rock on,Canon 5d!)…it’s apparent that YOU have an exceptionally gifted eye. (You even made the lady’s arm look tasty!)
    Thanks for sharing AND thanks to David Lebovitz for putting you on his Facebook faves!ReplyCancel

    What an experience! Sometimes I miss the fast-paced work in restaurants and want to trade my computer job for it.ReplyCancel

    Having shot in a few restaurants recently, I am now finally getting a sense of how to take photos in these compact kitchens. It really is amazing the treats they’re able to prepare in these spaces. Your photos, Kimberley, bring you into the heart of this dinner.ReplyCancel

    As someone who worked in restaurants for the good part of my life, it’s always nice to see someone else’s perspective from behind the scenes. And cramped kitchens often produce the most amazing results. Loved this. What a treat that must have been.ReplyCancel
