La Tartine Gourmande

A lucky few attended a Food Styling and Photo workshop with Béa Peltre, famed author of La Tartine Gourmande at our studio a couple of weeks ago.  The day began with a tour of the market at Union Square Farmer's Market.  We bought berries, radishes, breads, tomatoes, herbs, cherries and flowers. The market is pretty amazing right now.

Back at the Studio Béa taught a lesson on camera function, use of light, styling and propping. We served a light lunch during which everyone had a chance to mingle a bit. Students had flown in from all over the country for this. The remainder of the day was spent cooking, prepping, styling and shooting. We made tartines and desserts, some of which are in Béa's new book. If you haven't bought it yet - you must, it's beautiful.

Students created their own little sets and used all the different props we had on hand. Béa is a wonderful teacher and we were all charmed by her humor and kindness.

The day ended with a full student critique and a post production lesson by Béa.

A big Thank you to Bea and all the students - what a great time we had.  Looking forward to seeing you all again soon.  Next week we will be posting pics and recipes from Béa's Sunday Supper.  Until then, have a wonderful weekend.
