A Food Photography Blog I Love and Why You Should Too!

A Food Photography Blog I Love and Why You Should Too!

As Mike and I plan for a dream vacation to Bergen, Norway this coming September, I have been exploring the culture and cuisine of the area.  Throughout this process, I discover many interesting treasures that must be shared....

Instagram is a funny thing.  One minute you are posting pictures and the next thing you know, you receive a lovely comment.  You reply to the comment and view the visitors Instagram account and can't help yourself but to "follow" to see what they will post next.

 You and these new Instagram friends are worlds apart but quickly develop an appreciation for their kindness, talent, and ambition all through one image.  I guess you could say a friendship is born in this kindred habitat.

I would like to introduce you to Lotta and Anton of....

CAKE AND BEANS

From Stockholm, Sweden, this dynamic duo cook and photograph the most exciting vegan recipe creations enhanced by beautiful food photography.  Although I am not a vegan, I was captured by their friendly and warm blog presentation and the unique flavor combinations within their recipes.  The photography is a buffet of styles with a rustic, utilitarian freshness.

For example....

This recipe for Homemade Potato Chips is not only photographed so beautifully but let's face it...who DOESN'T LOVE Potato Chips!  This type of image just shouts "lifestyle food" to me on so many levels with the casual place setting and the "let's dive in" vibe.  Perfect.

For the sweet tooth and apple lover, consider this jewel....

Anton's Apple Cake

and follow that up with....

Freshly Pressed Juice

I hope I have inspired you to pay them a visit and poke around - I promise you will be delighted!

Another very important reason I wanted to share this blog with you is that they are currently developing their own COOKBOOK!

You know I love magazines and cookbooks, mainly for the photography, and I am convinced their's will be on my shelf when it is scheduled for release in 2018.

The moment you enter Cake and Beans, you immediately feel welcome.  Their images captured by Lotta grab you right out of the gate and draw you deeper into their blogging home.  Anton's Fresh and simple vegan ingredients are gathered and prepared in such a way you can't help yourself but want to try each recipe for the delicious outcome!

A bit more on this creative duo.....Yep, those smiles are infectious....

A friendly snippet from their blog ABOUT page that best describes who they are and what they do....

Lotta is a photographer, foodie and television editor who loves a good glass of wine, the Italian countryside, and cats. She's the photographer on the site and usually the one who makes all the desserts and chats with you on our social media. 

Anton is a food enthusiast and filmmaker who's very passionate about American politics, dancing, and graphic design. He is our chef and graphic designer. He's been cooking all his life and never says no to a second helping of dessert.

With our blog we want to show you how easy and delicious vegetarian food can be. Everyday food doesn't have to be fancy in order for it to be good, so we strive to use ingredients that everyone can afford to buy and can find in any store.

Stay connected and tuned-in to this creative force and I am sure we will be seeing much more of them in the days ahead!

Thank you Lotta and Anton for letting me share your story!

PS....Anton, if you have any Apple Cake leftovers, I can help you out with that!

This is not a sponsored post, just a fun way to share my online photography discoveries with you.  If you are an aspiring Food/Photography blogger and would like to talk about a feature on my blog, please get in touch with me via email and Let's Chat!!
