Relish Yorkshire

Yorkshire Restaurant Guide and Cookbook

This month has seen the publication of the Relish Yorkshire cookbook, featuring inspired recipes and food photography in menus provided by chefs from 16 of the best restaurants and hotels across Yorkshire.

I was pleased to be asked by Nathan and Matthew Evans at 1885 The Restaurant at Stainland, near Halifax, to shoot the images for their 10-page spread in the book.

I’ve worked with Nathan and Matthew to photograph their dishes before, so it was a treat to travel out to Stainland, a village in the Pennines near Halifax, to produce images of the three dishes they had selected for the book (and to taste them!).

As an editorial commission, the brief also required portraits of the brothers, preparation shots in the kitchen and images of the restaurant. This was all achieved in a days shoot.

The 160 page glossy hardback contains many unique recipes and is available at local and national bookshops.
