This time Martynas Praškevičius, the chef of the best Lithuanian restaurant of 2016, and I, decided to set off on the journey of rediscovering long-known but forgotten Lithuanian flavours, which are pure and true yet unexpected and astonishing.
Martynas is the one who, a few years ago, brought to me the best food photography book of that time and asked me: “Why can’t you do this?”. It was just the beginning of my photography career and the only things I had were the camera and lens. However, I started to look for ways on how to make my photos as good as those which I saw in the book. The bar was raised high.
It is always a pleasure working together with Martynas as I am 100% sure that the food he presents will look excellent on a plate and I will not need to make any re-arrangements. All I have to do then, is to take a good shot.
So, enjoy the new session of photographs and recipes.
