There seems to be a trend emerging to photograph food from above. It shows off the colours as well as the skill of the chef. I admit that I like to do this as well, especially when the plate or container is round.
For me, as a designer and someone that likes to cook, presentation, colour and arrangement is just as important as the taste. It may seem silly, but it’s what I do.
Cooking for me is a way to relax, and another medium for me to be creative.
Look at these lovely dishes, photographed from above. Some beautiful circles and and colours from my kitchen and travels.
