Leigh Beisch is Shooting a Cookbook but She Can’t Tell You More.

Leigh Beisch recently shared some images from a cookbook she is working on for a client.  Here is what she said to say about the project.

“One of my favorite kind of projects is to shoot a cookbook. Shooting a cookbook means that for an extended period of time- one week, two weeks… you get to sink your teeth into a subject.

So far I have had the delicious opportunity to shoot books on subjects as diverse as BBQ, ice cream, baking, kids baking and cooking, pickling, Japanese cooking, Chinese cooking, Vietnamese cooking, Irish cooking, infusing alcohol, tea, olives, apples, bread, vanilla, marshmallows, cooking with all parts of the animal, including FAT… well, perhaps I will stop there. All have been great fun, hard work and learning a lot about each subject.

The icing on the cake is getting the opportunity to meet and sometimes work with the author. At the beginning of this year I worked on a book that offered me the chance to work for the second time with a legend in the baking world. Working with the author Alice Medrich, I have learned to appreciate the subtlety of ingredient flavors complementing each other. I saw how a chef with a refined palette can balance this so well. I try to do that justice in my photographs.

I always have to be careful about how much I say about my projects so I need to leave it at that. I will disclose more when it is published by Artisan later this year. Until then, enjoy these images.”
