No matter what your food of choice is, the key thing all foodies and aspiring cooks have in common is the desire to share a beautiful looking dish.
Be it over the dinner table, via social media or a blog, or at an event, creating a plate that you are proud to present is deeply satisfying. It’s not for nothing that most great chefs will tell you that much of the pleasure of the eating is gleaned from the sight of a well prepared plate.
The professionals do this by creating a ‘story’ around both their food and themselves; an inimitable cooking and presentation style, unique and instantly recognisable as their own.
Now, you can start to write your own culinary tale just like the famous chefs and writers do with a brand new six-week course taught by the best ‘story-tellers’ in the business.
Hosted by multi-award winning chef and author, Sophie Wright, the course aims to be an easy and accessible intro the world of food styling, dining and photography.
Sophie, whose accolades include winning the Gourmand Easy Cookbook of the Year at just 22-years-old, will take you through all the elements that go into preparing an inviting story on a plate, using the skills you already have to highlight your personal brand.
In one day sessions held over six weeks, a cast of luminary guest lecturers will also share professional trade insights.
Ed Smith, the food blogger behind the runaway success of Rocket and Squash, will take you through Instagram and Blogging brilliance.
Michelin starred Adam Simmonds, Hotel Chef of the Year at the 2011 Catey’s will walk attendees through food plating techniques and styling.
Professional food lecturer and Sophie’s one-time teacher, Miranda Godfrey, will be educating on the balances of texture, colour and and flavours used in both editorial and commercial food plating, and along with Sophie will explain why they are different. Join her Asparagus picking the fabulous surroundings and make your dishes come to life on camera.
Professional photographer Daria Marczak, who has worked covering editorial food shoots and events for venues like The Ritz, The Savoy, and the Four Seasons will spend an entire session of the course sharing expert tuition in lighting, angles and how to take a great, professional shot using nothing more complex than your mobile phone.
Finally throughout the course, social media expert and renowned vlogger Milly Cundall will be on-hand to provide reassurance and advice on re-creating your personal brand online, using social media and sharing tools with confidence and clarity.
At the end of the course you will come away with a certificate of completion, plus a beautifully presented image of your best shot from the course, plus the reassurance of on-going support from our experts should you need it as your food-tale unfolds for the world to enjoy.
Held in the surroundings of the fabulous Dorney Hall, near Windsor, the area is a mecca for those looking for the perfect lighting and with access to ingredients grown both on the grounds and locally the course is sure to be a gastronomic treat.
