The Kitchen, The Chefs, The Food.

This is The Nut Tree at Murcott.

Some jobs aren’t like actual jobs. An assignment might present you with a day in your career that leaves you grinning insanely and gibbering like Murdoch off of the A Team.  The day I spent ‘working’ at The Nut Tree at Murcott was one such occasion.  I had eaten there once before and was hugely impressed.  Attention to detail.  That’s what I love and that’s what I found there. The chefs paid every last bit of their attention to the detail on the plates they were creating.  They then handed those plates to me and I got to work paying every last drop of my attention to it too.  Once photographed, I then stuffed the food into my mouth paying little attention anything else.

I found delicious heaven in a little corner of the bar area of The Nut Tree at Murcott.  That’s how I spent my day.  I zapped between my little studio set up and the kitchen.  I got stuck in the with action there and watched in amazement as dish after perfect dish left the pass, each one a little work of art.

Here are selection of the images I created for them that day.  Can you spot one of the famous I.O.Shen Knives?  They’re a firm favourite in the kitchen here.

It’s a relaxed, friendly place with awesome staff to look after you and food to blow your bonce.  Here’s their site: www.nuttreeinn.co.uk

All of the images you see here are using natural light and I am able to set up in most locations for this type of work.  If you would like to know more about my food photography please GIVE ME A CALL!  Let’s do it on the phone….01296 730389
