Flour & Fire

The brief was to capture all things “Flour & Fire” for a new website designed to reflect chef Valerio Fantinelli’s shift in focus from off-site catering to private chef’s dinners. These are created and served from his bespoke outdoor kitchen and dining room in the back of his home. We spent a full day together capturing a number of his specialty dishes and surroundings along with some environmental portraits of Valerio.
A second shoot covered a live event with Valerio’s wife Anna seamlessly providing front-of-house service while Valerio cooked and talked to guests across the evening.

“I had the pleasure of having Harriet taking some pictures for my catering business on two separate occasions. Both times I was extremely happy with the results she produced. Harriet is so easy to communicate with and her relaxed and professional approach makes the process so easy and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend her work to anyone looking for great quality photos. Thank you so much Harriet it was fantastic to work with you.” – Valerio Fantinelli,  Flour & Fire
