Cookbook no.2: Done, done & done!
November 23rd, 2010

Writing a cookbook sometimes feels like living in a parallel universe, my usual daily routine got reduces to what looked like planet earth from outer space. Luckily, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Now that we are (almost) finished, I keep asking myself where the last months went and what actually happened in the world outside my office (and kitchen) and Coco’s studio.

There are certain things I will miss, like the late-night calls with my photographer, discussing our latest packaging finds and other things. Especially Oliver will miss the emergency calls to style the truffels yet another time (cover shot no. 9 – ok I’m exagerating just a little, not much though). All in all, it has been a wonderful collaboration with my dear friend and extremely talented photographer Coco Lang, probably the only person in the world, who can get as excited about foodgifts and packaging as I do.

The book will be published by Gräfe und Unzer early 2011 in German language (I’ll keep you posted on other languages), it contains a copious selection of recipe and packaging ideas surrounding the subject of homemade gifts from the kitchen and I hope you will like it as much as we do!

So, before delicious:days will resume with some fabulous Christmas recipes as well as my favorite fall salad, I leave you with some impressions and sneak peeks from the photo shoots. Enjoy :)

In the end we almost drowned in  cute packaging.

Coco’s good spirits – responsible for the positive vibes and the occasional sneeze (on my end).

Delicacies, ready to be styled and the omnipresent pinboard.

Coffee. By the litre.

A photographer’s fruit bowl always looks pretty.

And her cupboard reveals many hidden treasures.

Ssshhh, I stole these from the production. Don’t tell anyone!

Yes we are tired. And exhausted. But so happy!
