Last week I had the pleasure of working with the amazing Lisbet Mielke, owner of Ravishing Radish Catering and Ravish Restaurant in Seattle. What a gem of a place indeed! Nestled at the end of Eastlake Ave, Ravish sits with inviting bright green chairs and a vintage chic decor to match. They specialize in finding fresh, local ingredients and have a great seasonal menu not to mention wonderfully friendly staff. Naturally I got excited right away and couldn’t wait to shoot some of their delicious food.
Product photographer Casey Lam agreed to be my amazing assistant for the day and we started bright and early at Ravishes’ catering location which is conveniently one street below the restaurant with Lake Union as their front yard. If ever you need a beautiful spot to bring lots of people together, this is the place! After several beautiful dishes including seared halibut with multicolored tomato basil vinaigrette and seckle pear crostinis with thyme and honey, I was drooling all over the set….. Just kidding! What really happened is Casey, Lisbet, business developer Vickie Peterson ( both of whom are amazing stylists!) and I were lost in a creative world of food and photography.
The day continued on after a short lunch break and we moved up to the restaurant location to finish up. Here, Lisbet whipped up some baked mac and cheese and some beef sliders speckled with fresh carrots and purple cabbage. They have a full bar so we decided to add a beautiful bright cocktail as well. Why not?! That always makes things fun!
So, all in all, a really fantastic day filled with amazing food, really great people and lots of laughs! Thanks Ravishing Radish for such a great experience!
Thanks miss Casey for the set shots!
