Actually quite extraordinary! That was our latest food photography project with the multi-talented Lauren Simon. Lauren is an actress and chef with an unparalleled drive and creative spirit. She and I met during our Culinary Arts studies at Le Cordon Bleu.
Lauren's brilliant TV show idea "Ordinary to Extraordinary" was the subject of the images you see before you. Her concept was to turn ordinary every day dishes into culinary delights. Whether it's ordinary lasagna that with her skill and imagination becomes beautiful mini lasagna cups, or a plain grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup that transforms into delectable tomato soup shooters, the results are amazing. The wonderful whimsy of Lauren's chocolate covered tiramisu cake pops is matched only by their yum factor.
