15th Oct 2010 Posted in: Food Fanatics Unwashed, On The Job Comments Off on The Spain Gang
The Spain Gang

We had an incredible time in Tarragona, Spain and beyond!  We went to speak and hold workshops at the Food Photo Festival and were absolutely blown away by the level of passion and talent.  Truly inspiring and I must say, European food photography is very different from American, in a great way. We met old […]

23rd Sep 2010 Posted in: On The Job Comments Off on "How To Sell Yourself" Is On The Internet (It’s not naughty, we swear).

Denise just successfully completed her first webinar!  We are so proud. I think I know what I’m doing. I don’t know what I’m doing. I think I did it?! Yes, I did it! Click here to view her Webinar in all it’s glory (minus Denise’s luscious voice, of course-she charges for that).

We helped Candace Cameron Bure prepare for this segment.  Clearly, Tiffany’s a fan.  Aren’t they both adorable?

20th Sep 2010 Posted in: Books, On The Job, Recipe Comments Off on Holiday Chocolate

Photos Courtesy of Jon Edwards There’s nothing like styling holiday fudge in September to make you crave Christmas decor and truffles.  Not in that order. I love when we work on projects so far in advance of the actual holiday it’s stupid; then I go home and make turkey and stuffing.  Just call me Pavlov. […]

17th Sep 2010 Posted in: On The Job, Video Comments Off on Loving The Imperial Suite…For 5 Hours

These videos document Cindie and Tiffany’s way too brief time at the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco. It is a lovely hotel that was booked solid, so when they arrived at 8:00pm and the hotel didn’t have their room ready, a short panic ensued. Cindie and Tiffany were supposed to have two rooms but there […]

20th Aug 2010 Posted in: On The Job Comments Off on Styling Pork Chops

I know when I go to Monrovia in August and it’s 102 degrees, the first thing I think is “pork chops”.  It’s only natural.  This was the pork chop corral.  We had to find two that looked pretty together for the shot.  It’s all about options, y’all. Tiffany was on fat burning detail.  We all […]

5th Apr 2010 Posted in: On The Job Comments Off on Jimmie The Pig

I’m not sure when we started calling Mr. Piggie “Jimmie”. Cindie named him. Working on a Cuban cookbook last week, Jen had to go to a Mexican market and order a whole, dressed pig. It’s not as easy as it sounds…and many a market later, Jen brought home Jimmie. Dressed means his innards were gone…with […]

Her passion for Cuban food is evident in all of her books and has resulted in the development of her first cookbook! Cecilia is sharing family stories and recipes that span many generations, and are ridiculously delicious. Denise and Cindie could […]
