Liz & Jewels

I taught a morning session at a food styling and photography workshop recently and it was there that I made several new friends. Two lovely and talented German ladies really stood out as they are both authors, cooks, photographers and stylists (whoa!) and now – new bloggers! They are Liz and Jewels and together they’ve launched a blog and I love their concept. Check it out below…

Liz and Jewels

“Every week, we will come together (virtually!) to challenge each other.  We will both cook the same recipe, then style it and photograph it. But far apart from each other… Liz in Münster (Germany), Jewels in New York. We do expect difficulties: and exactly that tempts us! Will we find the same ingredients, how much does the dish cost in Germany, how much in the US? Will Liz find and use the same brown sugar as Jewels? Will we interpret the recipe the same way? When two people follow the same recipe, will they actually end up eating the same dish? Whatever comes out of it: We will share it with you. And we want you to participate by giving us ideas for recipes. Tell us what to cook or bake next!” – cool blog idea, right? I love it.

    That is a fantastic idea! It will be interesting to see how each person, in different environments, interprets the recipe and what items look like when finished.

    These ladies will have to begin translating their recipes in to English if they want a wider audience. Loved the cake w/coffee pot photo, but sadly, can’t attempt the cake.

    This is a fantastic idea. I love to see how different people interpret the same idea.

    p.s. That strawberry cheesecake is certainly eye-catching and causing lots of us to drool :o)

    You know. I wouldn’t consider my blog a food blog. And I don’t actually read any food blogs – probably because I don’t have any time to get better at cooking. However, food photography would probably also be useful in terms of party hosting because food does make its way onto the scene. This is something I am definitely going to add to my list of “things I could improve upon”, thanks for inspiring/reminding me.
