When the first snow of the season appears all of a sudden everything starts to smell like Christmas. This new #44 photoshoot of mine, created with Inga Turminienė, the Chef of the restaurant “Ieti” in Kaunas, is infused with the aroma of crisp, clean snow and a white Christmas.
The colour white was chosen for this theme even though it is not a common background hue to use in a photoshoot. I decided to use various graphic white lines which match so well with nature at this time of year. Inga’s dishes are perfect for both the lead up to the holidays as well as the celebration day itself. Just take a look at the dessert with little fish under the “ice” and the incredibly cute hot chocolate with a Christmas tree perched on the top. Every Sweet Tooth, big or little, will love these delicious beauties!
Let the anticipation of the festive season be both delicious and sweet!
