Styling France | Day Three


Day three, and I remember literally waking up to an ‘ooh I’m still oh so full’ feeling after Tuesday nights luxurious candlelit dinner in the grounds of La Manoir, one amazing meal too many perhaps? The astonishing thing is that only a few short hours later I found myself in the Sarlat-la-Caneda market, staring unabashedly into what can only be described as a vat of Paella with absolutely no intention of walking on by.


Below some of our market finds laid out beautifully for lunch, the ever-laughing Romina of Les Madeleines in Salt Lake City, and our very own most-photographed hand and face model, Olivia of Everyday Musings.

Later that afternoon we set about cooking and styling a cèpes risotto.  I confess to being slightly nervous when confronted with this as I have tried and failed in the past to find a way to make risotto look somehow elegant, but perhaps that was my problem.  Watching Aran style with such ease was incredibly motivating and after a few wrong turns I was very happy with the rustic looking result. A truly inspiring day.

Celeste - That paella looks to-die for! I was fortunate enough to visit Sarlat this summer but not fortunate enough to visit on market day. Your photos are really lovely– the first two sets are my favorite :)

Sanda - It is really fun to look at the market day photos all of us took.Each one of us captured different moments and that is so great!!!Love it.

Karine Keldany - I find it also hard to style and photograph mono color dishes. The risotto here looks great. Very inviting. The rustic feels links to the forest and mushrooms. Great work!

LatteLisa - I found your blog through Stephmodo and I’m simply in love with your market photos! Beautiful. It’s so much fun viewing all these photos from Aran’s workshop; you must have had a wonderful time.

I’m really glad that I discovered you blog ;-)

Jennifer - Now I’m wishing I had tried the paella AND the potatoes! These are lovely Lorna.

Alan spedding ( cumbriafoodie ) - Just how good would some of those pics look on canvas and up on the wall ? Great pics.

nadia - beautiful Lorna, love what you captured such a great post!

Romina - so beautiful! I was craving more of those potatoes yesterday and thinking I single-handedly at about 4 ducks that week. ;)
