The brief for this particular shoot was to create a dish that would then be flipped to create a mirror image – to demonstrate “perfectly even cooking”. This meant actually creating half a dish with a vision for the final look.  On top of that there was sauce! Overall it went pretty smoothly, and later on it was fun showing people the finished result and watching their faces as their minds tried to make sense of what they were seeing!
