Well, it’s been a long, long time since I’ve posted on My Wooden Spoons.
As many of you know who have been following my food blog, I took a break from posting recipes to focus on my passion for food photography. It has taken me in a few directions and I have enjoyed spending time honing my craft.
Now for my exciting news!
I am happy to announce that some of my work has been featured in two new magazines.
I was commissioned to work on the re-launch of JamaicanEats magazine and am excited that the final product is now published and available to purchase, July issue 2015. I was thrilled to ‘land the cover’ photo for the new magazine. ( that certainly has a nice ring to it ) 🙂
You can order your copy now at http://jamaicaneats.com/
I was also contacted by another new magazine which is based in Barbados. The editors chose my recipe for ‘Dijon Caribbean Sweet Potato Salad’ which appears on Page 37, and I was also added as a “Featured Foodie’. The magazine is free digitally and it is also published quarterly. The next issue October/Christmas will be available in print.
So it’s been quite an exciting time exploring the world of food photography and especially gratifying that I was recognized for my work and passion.
I also want to take this time to thank you for all the years of support. Many of you have been with me from my humble beginnings of cooking, sharing recipes and photographing some delicious foods. I hope that those following my blog, haven’t been too disappointed when I decided to take a break from sharing my recipes. It’s been quite evident to me for sometime, that I’m basically a ‘free style’ cook, adding ingredients as I go. It was always a challenge to sit down and put my recipes on paper in order to share with you. Following directions, adding proper measures and weights doesn’t come naturally to me.
I am still undecided as to the direction of my food blog, whether it be strictly photography or possibly ‘featured recipes’ periodically, but rest assured, I will keep you posted.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and keep on cooking!
