Photography on Food Blog SkinnyTaste

Fresh ingredients • Food Photography by Tracy Wong

I looove shooting food photography, and I feel especially great after working on healthy recipes for nutritionist Heather K. Jones. Of course I couldn’t say no when she asked for food photos of her version of the Sunshine Bowl, featured on renowned blog SkinnyTaste.

The recipe was based on a fresh dish at one of her favorite Seattle food carts. Topped with a bright yellow sunshine sauce, the Sunshine Bowl was packed with fresh vegetables, grilled chicken, and quinoa, making it a filling and nourishing meal.

Food photographer in Hong Kong

Part of the perks as a food photographer is that I get to taste some of the most delicious and beautiful dishes. This photography project I did with Dietician Heather K Jones is the perfect example. Heather is a long-time client of mine, and she reached out to me again when she was guest blogging on renowned healthy food blog Skinnytaste.

The dish I shot this time was an Asian-inspired salmon bowl with a recipe from Heather’s sister. The bright color of the salmon really popped in the photos! See more from this food photoshoot and a link to the recipe below the jump…

Bananas Foster Cupcakes with Ginger Cinnamon Frosting

I’m usually not much of a baker; I just find it hard to follow the exact measurements and instructions in order to produce a successful baked good. But I hosted a little dinner for my cousin’s family and decided to get out of my comfort zone.

I first found my cupcake recipe at Peace.Love&Yummines for their Bananas Foster Cupcakes but decided to make a ginger-based frosting to cut down the sweetness… (Well, also because I have plenty of ginger at home and no maple syrup…)

I halved the cupcake recipe to make 12 cupcakes. For a rustic look, cut parchment paper into 3- to 4- inch squares to use as lining paper. Push the center of the paper into the cupcake pan compartment, then fold a few times on the sides. The shape will stay once you place batter into the paper.

Here’s my ginger cinnamon frosting recipe:

  • 1/2 cup sliced ginger
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar

Simmer these 3 ingredients together for 30 minutes and remove the ginger pieces to make ginger syrup.

  • 1 1/2 stick butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cup powered sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ginger syrup, to taste

Beat the butter until soft, then add the powered sugar and cinnamon while mixing. Add ginger syrup to the spiciness of your liking.

I piped the frosting using a small ziploc bag. Enjoy :)

Goat Cheese Pizza with Sausage, Fingerling Potatoes, & Asparagus

Last week I suddenly had the craving to make pizza. Keith requested that we put goat cheese on it, so I went on a hunt for a good combination of toppings to accompany the goat cheese.

The recipe I found from epicurious worked wonderfully! The original was vegetarian, so I added Italian sausage to satisfy my carnivorous nature. I also left out some of the ingredients to keep things simple and fresh.

I loved the asparagus on the pizza! They added a punch of color and also balanced the deep flavors of the cheese and sausage. If you’d like to try it out, here’s the printable recipe, complete with the recipe for the thin crust dough. Enjoy!
