Photographer and Food Stylist Angie Mosier, Angie recently worked on Reece Witherspoon's newly released cookbook Whiskey in a Teacup joining her is James Beard Award winning Chef Rebecca Wilcomb they invite you to join them in an exploration and documentation of the unique foodways of the very special Tuscan region of Lunigiana.
Taking meaningful and gorgeous photos of food and the folks that bring our food to the table is all about telling the story through the lens. Rebecca’s approach to cooking is definitely about technique but that technique is nothing without an interesting and delicious ingredient. The whole story starts in the soil, or the water—then the market and the process of taking care of the ingredients. Prep and recipes are meaningful steps to a finished dish and all of these leading elements help to create beautiful visuals. We will shop local markets, visit farms and dairies to document the food and people of the place. In the kitchen Rebecca will lead us through her process of cooking while paying homage to all of the people and elements that make great ingredients come to life in a recipe.
Setting the table and curating lovely dishes, flatware, glassware and linens make food become a celebration and an invitation to gather in a welcoming place and engage in true communion with others. Capturing the conversations and smiles, the lingering participants and the jovial demeanor of a group around a table is one other piece of the narrative. Visiting curious shops and markets, we will seek out beautiful elements that will contribute our collective story.
Whether you are working to enhancing your career and boosting your existing business or just want to have fun cooking, eating, exploring and taking pictures with other creative people, Angie and Rebecca will engage with you to make sure you eat well and learn as much as you can about the kinds of work they do in their daily lives. During that time we will fellowship and frolic in the Tuscan paradise that Annette has created at La Fortezza and environs.
