Slow Food Baton Rouge’s Dinner in the Field…


I recently got the opportunity to be a part of something so deliciously cool


I absolutely love food photography…but I love food itself even more.

I’ve mentioned Slow Food Baton Rouge before.

My dear friends Allison and Grant..(newly married with such fun business ambitions…you can see their engagements here)

have for the last year been a vital part of Slow Food Baton Rouge and their efforts to promote Baton Rouge chefs, farmers and all the great things they provide for our community.

So I got to be a part of seriously one of the coolest events I’ve been to, much less had the joy of shooting. This was a dream come true for all attendees who sat amongst the amazing oaks of the front yard of Oakland Plantation in Jackson, Louisiana. The guests got to literally experience plate after plate of amazing…I mean amazing food. And it just kept coming!! I won’t be able to give an accurate explanation of this awesomeness so here’s what their website explains about

Dinner in the Field..

“It all started with an idea…brunch with the pigs! And with the help of chef Fred Heurtin, that idea has blossomed into Dinner in the Fields, the premiere farm to table event in the Baton Rouge area! Slow Food Baton Rouge’s Dinner in the Field could not happen without these chefs, who are genorously donating their time and talent and will be using all fresh, local ingredients. We are so thankful for chefs committed to local, seasonal food right here in Baton Rouge!”

The following are the chefs who contributed to Dinner in the Field :

Thank you to the folks at Slow Food Baton Rouge for asking me to be a part of the event. Such a great and truly delicious evening to be a part of:)


And now I want to eat something…

thanks for stopping by,
