I just read about this new baking book by Ikea and thought the photos were styled so perfectly. Food photography is hard and they were spot on! It is a bit of a guessing game to figure out what recipe each photo is depicting so I wrote each one out below the photo. I would love to add this cookbook to my collection... anyone headed to Sweden anytime soon?
Here is what New York Mag had to say about it:
Everyone's favorite homewares purveyor Ikea has just published a collection of baking recipes called Hembakat är Bäst (Homemade Is Best). Sure, knowing how to make Princess Cake is fine and dandy, but the volume is illustrated with some of the most inventive cookbook photography we've ever seen: Styled by Evelina Bratell and photographed by Carl Kleiner, the pristine arrangements of ingredients are so stark and geometric that they verge on the abstract. The good news is that the book is completely free; the bad news is that the only place you can get it is in the kitchen section of Ikea stores — in Sweden.
