Picture from my book "Plated Heirlooms" for the recipe "Yakhnet Qulqas" (Stew of colocasia p. 265) in the 4th chapter of the book which is dedicated for soups & stews "Shorabat O Yakhani". As you read through Plated Heirlooms you will see that the pictures in the book are made to reflect the book's narrative, descriptions and cultural context.
On this link (http://youtu.be/nbC9PYl7jR4) you will find a preview video of "Plated Heirlooms" including many of the book's photographs that have become so loved and discussed by many food photography experts and enthusiasts and are said to be "setting a new trend in food photography: Cultural Food Photography" which of course is music to my ears :)
Watch the full video on my #YouTube channel (Dima Al Sharif) and take a look at the pictures then do let me know what you think.
