It’s been a crazy busy 2013 and we’re trying to keep up with our goals and list. So far, so good!

Finally, after so many requests, we have our updated food photography/styling workshop information in one place. And better yet, we finally set up a mailing list for all updates regarding all our workshops, updates and behind the scenes photos from the classes. So for those of you who keep asking us to add you to a list, we have one for you!

Visit our new “Official” Photography Workshop Website: http://workshops.tdphotographers.com/

You can subscribe to our mailing list for all photography workshop new dates and updates here.

And we have one spot that opened up for our February 22-23, 2013 Food Photography/Styling Workshop here. We’re also working on a March date, so keep checking back on our workshop website or sign up for the updates.

Over the last 2 months, we’ve been working on the manuscript edits for our cookbook. Wow, this journey has been so fun. Can’t believe we didn’t do it sooner. Best of all, we’ve had editors red-mark our manuscript and correct us of all our typos, grammar and cleaning up all our mistakes. If you haven’t had a copy editor run their red marks through your work, it’s an eye-opener. But really, it feels so wonderful to have someone help make our writing better and we learn so much from this whole process. Wish we had one for the blog.

Thank goodness we didn’t get a school grade on our manuscript because if it was an English assignment, we’d get a C+. Seriously, who knew that we shouldn’t have water written out on the ingredient list? And the use of too many “uh, of, the, but, and…”. Yup, that’s us. Grade: C- . We’re always working on being better writers but until then, we won’t quit our day jobs as photographer and food stylist.

So in keeping busy, we’re shooting a bunch of fun photographs and project for Food & Wine. Some are recipes and some are lifestyle shots for an upcoming feature. The recipe shots are so fun and eating them is even better. It’s so hard to not dive into each of their recipes but we’ve bookmarked some of our favorites to make for future dinner parties.

One recipe we really loved was this pan roasted salmon recipe that rocked our world. We’ve been craving more seafood lately and the last batch of shots for Food and Wine had plenty of salmon for us. This salmon recipe is cooked to tender-perfection on the pan and dressed with a wonderful orange vinaigrette.  In our region, citrus season is peaking and with our abundance of fresh oranges, a vinaigrette over salmon can’t get any better.

Why we love this recipe even more is that it’s loaded with fresh shaved fennel bulb, baby spinach and radicchio- all of which makes a perfect collage of greens and ruffage. This pan roasted salmon really can’t get any better than this. It’s a healthy dinner that feeds the craving for healthy protein and a generous dose of seasonal vegetables.

For this Pan Roasted Salmon recipe, visit the Food & Wine Site. This new photo isn’t on the site yet, but you got the sneak peak here today!

Inspired from this Jack-in-the-Box commercial and our grilled cheese shoot with LA Brea Bakery a few weeks ago.  It’s this week, 17 years ago that we had our first conversations about food, gardening and […]

Dark Chocolate Almond Bark – although it was almost Raspberry Cream Chocolates

Thumbnail image for Dark Chocolate Almond Bark – although it was almost Raspberry Cream Chocolates

I suck. At least I did this weekend. Just when I thought I had my dessert mojo going… splunk. I was on a chocolate raspberry kick. The chocolate mousse was delicious – which for some reason I’ve recently been saying “delicious” with a Smeagol-like enthusiasm. I had spied a raspberry cream chocolate candy recipe in […]

Dark Chocolate Mousse with Raspberry Puree

by White on Rice Couple February 9, 2013

It is too easy for the daily “I love you” ‘s and quick kisses to have the same depth as a “what up, bro” or a “hey, girlfriend”. Happens to the best of us. Well maybe not the best, but at least us mortals. Now you don’t have to bust out the Marvin Gaye, blindfold […]

Honey Mustard Spare Ribs recipe

Hi guys, Todd here. It’s taken me a week and a half, but I’m finally ready for the Super Bowl. Like the majority of the fans across the league we’ve seen our teams bounced out of contention, week by week. A season’s worth of hopes, rooting, agony, and aspiration whittled down to two teams, neither […]

Baked Eggs in Avocado with Bacon on Toast

Wait, don’t click away yet. Hold on to that thought. Allow me to explain this dish to you before judge a warm avocado meal. I know, it may sound awkward to be spreading hot avocado on toast, dripping with egg yolk and scattered with bacon bits. It may even sound blasphemous to some of you […]

Sharing the Kishu Mandarins

by White on Rice Couple January 25, 2013

These orange jewels you see in the photo above are kishu mandarins. David Karp calls them the mighty mandarin “the most delicious of mandarins”. They’re small, seedless, easy to peel and sweet. We call them citrus candy and you can’t just eat one. Because they’re so addicting, delicious and often hard to find, we decided […]

Warm Baked-Sweet Potato Soup for the Soul

by White on Rice Couple January 13, 2013

The past few days have been so chilly with early morning frost, it’s hard to believe that we still have a few tomatoes growing in the garden. Granted, the tomatoes are green, but it still feels awkward to be pickling a batch of green tomatoes in the middle of a West Coast January.  Gathering tomatoes […]

What do you NOT like to eat?

An interesting conversation came up on our Facebook page the other day about foods kids like to eat. We asked parents what their minions like to eat because we’re planning some kiddie menus for an upcoming project. We’re kid-less, well at least with the two legged kind. We do have two of those four-legged kids […]

You should come see our kitchen. Actually, maybe you shouldn’t because we’d probably kidnap you to hover over the sink and wash a ton of dishes. As of the last two months we’ve been working on client shoots and recipe testing for personal projects that all involve enough food to feed a football team. Almost […]
