Photographs of delicious recipes are often not all they are cooked up to be, as guests discovered at our latest reader event Photographs by Andy Bulmer
More often than not the mouth-watering photograph of a roast chicken in your favourite recipe book is likely to have been painted with varnish to give it that golden look. And you really dont want to know what is used to help create steam rising from a freshly served dish.
These were the kind of tricks revealed by professional recipe photographer Sue Hiscoe who talked about her work and signed copies of her new book at a Yorkshire Life reader event held at Rudding Park, Harrogate.
Readers travelled from around the county to the exclusive lunch not just to meet Ms Hiscoe and discover some of the tricks of her trade but also to make new friends and catch up with old ones.
Lunch included wine with pan fried salmon on a bed of salmon followed by a trio of Wakefield rhubarb. Readers were also given the chance to visit Rudding Parks newly opened spa.
The event was organised in association with Annie Stirk, our food and drink consultant, who also hosted the event with her company Absolutely Food.
