Is Christmas here again?

Is it Christmas already?  I’ve been so busy for the last three months that I haven’t had time to think about it or to post anything on my blog.

So here are a couple of images from a Christmas food and entertaining shoot done way back in August in North Yorkshire for the Yorkshire Party Company, when it was warm enough to keep the doors open in the beautiful farmhouse kitchen of  the founder and brains behind YPC (and Yorkshire Provender), Belinda Williams.

We shot a traditional Christmas hamper including popular festive treats such as glazed Yorkshire ham, Stilton cheese, Cumberland sauce and mince pies as well as a selection of mouth watering canapés and shots of Belinda entertaining at home for a magazine feature.
