Earlier this week, we were lucky to enjoy a Q&A with food stylist and photographer Nina Gallant, who photographs all the beautiful food recipes for Just Add Cooking. Nina is back today to talk about going beyond the plate and styling your entire table for an extra-special dinner, whether you’re just serving your family on a weeknight or hosting a dinner party!
Each week, you’ll notice that along with your Just Add Cooking recipes comes a beautiful photo of the food. Think that only a trained chef can achieve a gorgeous plate? Think again! We had the chance to ask food stylist and photographer Nina Gallant, who photographs the recipes for Just Add Cooking, for her best tips on making the plate beautiful. Read part 1 of our interview here and stay tuned later this week, when Nina will be talking about moving from the plate to the table!
June is National Seafood Month, and in New England, it can come at no better time! Seafood makes for an awesome light meal in the summertime, and there are tons of ways to cook it up–so no matter your taste preferences, you can make a dish that the whole family will love. Plus, for those of us watching our waistlines for swimsuit season, seafood is a lower-calorie alternative to many other protein options that also packs lots of flavor with the simple addition of herbs and spices.
We are all about cooking at home, but we also know that the best meals come from getting inspired ouside the kitchen! Boston is a city full of foodies and great food minds, and summer is the perfect time to explore. We are so excited by all the Boston area food fairs, festivals and events coming up this summer that we thought this was a list worth sharing with you.
So get out of the house and enjoy this beautiful summer weather… and some tasty bites at these summer food events in Boston!
