A private dinner and some food photography tips from award winning photographer and chef Andrea Oschetti in his wonderful loft studio with the Amateur Gourmet crew.
A simple three course meal that I and a few others helped prepare. He’s all about healthy Italian cooking, without butter cream and sparing use of oil—which while light and tasty, the French part of me by osmosis was really craving some cream, butter and richer flavours. We started with cannelloni with generous toppings of bechamel sauce, then a Sicilian sea bass cooked with water, sea salt and some herbs, which tasted slightly underdressed and we finished with a flourless, sugarless chocolate cake.
Taking some advice from Nevin who’s been really kind and helpful on photography tips, I’m learning through trial and error with finding the right eye for a variety of shots, rather than always using the same close up angle!
You can reach Andrea Oschetti on his website for private dinners or classes. We paid about 500HKD each for the three courses, but we ordered a bottle of prosecco for aperitivo and another bottle of red for dinner.
