Shooting Photos for Lazy Day Foods

Food makes me happy. Always has, always will.

Some flavours, smells or recipes bring back memories of past holidays, precious moments or ordinary ones that I would not want to forget. I have flash backs of happy moments whenever I have nectarines (holidays in the South of France), bilberries (picking them in the Alps), pain perdu (we would have French toast once a week when I was little), fondue Savoyarde & raclette (skiing holidays) or crêpes (my whole childhood!).

More recently, some square chocolaty bites have made it to my foodie memory bank. It was when I had reached a low point. Jumpy’s eczema was at its worst. The angry rashes on her face a constant feature and no matter how many ingredients I excluded from her diet, nothing worked. By that time, I had it in my head that she was allergic to water…

My friend Cé came over one evening and proudly offered a packet of cakes I had never heard about for Jumpy. The Lazy Day Foods treats looked way too nice and moreish to be allowed. I checked and rechecked the ingredients, and they were safe (ignoring the ‘Do not guarantee nut free’ warning since they were made in a nut-free factory.)

I am so grateful to Lazy Day Foods for creating those delicious treats for people on exclusion diets. I actually love the rocky road myself, and it is vegan too! I am normally a ‘free from nothing’ kind of person (full fat, full of sugar, full of nuts, full of free-range eggs is normally what I love best).

They did it. I am not sure how but Lazy Day Foods managed to make ‘free from’ taste good. I have written about them a few times already, and no doubt will I write about them again in the future!

When they asked me to do some product photography for them, I was honoured (here come the bright red cheeks, and the beaming smile, quickly followed by a phone call to my mum!). A lot of slices were consumed during the photo shoots. It would be rude to leave crumbs on the plate, wouldn’t it?

Lazy Day Foods were happy for me to share a few of the photos I took for them, so here goes…

    We used to eat our meals at the table, such a shame not many families do that anymore. It’s important as you get to chat about things and it’s a good way to teach children good table manners which is very important.

    my great nan used to make a pudding called apple snow it was almost like an apple sauce but frothy and she would crumble a Cadbury flake on the top of it! it was so good and I always used to look forward to it when we would go and visit, wish I knew how to make it now but I bet it would never be the same

    My mum was always experimenting with recipes and I was chief critic so I would always give her my honest opinion and she would navigate away from the instructions and make some wonderful culinary delights, one of which was a half chocolate half oaty cereal bar that was intended to be biscuits but it was sublime.

    When I was little every week when we went to the supermarket. I’d run and get some belly pork then ask the butcher to put some Chinese dressing on it. It tasted amazing
