Marmalades...A Cookbook Giveaway

Tuesday, October 09, 2012


Marmalades Cookbook
Radio silence once again. If you know me, you also know that this is not my usual thing to be this quiet. Lots and lots happening again. Generally, I would never come up with reasons why I did let something get a bit more silent (this page) but this time, tonight, there are plentiful and I am letting them all be.

Marmalades Cookbook
The last five months have turned into a blurr. Many destinations. Workshops. Two cookbooks shoots. Fifty recipes for other clients. A job proposal. An acceptance. A house hunt. A bare bone move (seriously moved with three boxes labeled kitchen, clothes, toiletries and office. Oh and some props, linens, reflectors and strobes...)** And my first day working with amazing talent propping and styling the recipes I will be shooting.

Marmalades Cookbook
A wave of emotions is taking hold of me as I reflect on the years gone by. I am sitting in an empty living room. It's an unsually chilly day for Birmingham, I am told. I have a fire going. Some hot soup on the stove. A glass of wine. This is it. What comes to my mind, very clearly, though is how I would have never imagined the winding roads of this career would take me to this moment.


Marmalades Cookbook
Yet, how everything I did in my work was never by chance but always from a place of hard work and desire of a job well done. How goodness comes to one's own heart by just trusting yourself onto others. How just opening up your guts and heart to the universe gives you ten times the hopes you sent out there. How leading lights of desires, friendships, mentors and aspirations, inspirations lead one to just pack up and go seek a better life for the ones you love.


I am not alone. Bill has been the best team mate of all. He fully let me take hold of the direction of this team of two we created 14 years ago. That's big. And then there is the team at work. Mindblowingly creative. I feel completely supported to bring myself into team project. A place where individual growth will happen as I work on many different collaborative projects.


Marmalades Cookbook
Good people working on fun projects always make for a fun day at work. That is one if the reasons I wanted to share this book I photographed a few months ago, Marmalades by Elizabeth Fields (Running Press). It just came out and while I take a little time getting situated in my new life, I wanted to share with you some good old fashioned and modern marmalades recipes by giving away a couple of copies of the book, courtesy of Running Press.


All you have to do to participate is to leave a comment on this post. Two winners will be picked at random this Sunday October 14th, midnight central time. The giveaway is open to all, one comment per person, (no anonymous comments please).
Good luck!
** some of you seem to think I permanently moved with three boxes. No! That's all I could bring to Birmingham before flying out of the country for a shoot and coming back directly to Birmingham. I have not been home to Charleston to get my stuff since mid September. If I had the luxury of time and space, you bet I would have taken a couple more....!

I have been going out to look at our Quince tree daily to see how they are ripening. Cannot wait to make Membrillo, and what do I see, but a recipe on your site. How awesome is that. The new book looks lovely, I am sure your photos are works of art!

Helene, I love your photographs (and would love the book, too!). I wish I could arrange my food like you do. I wish I could take photos 1/10 as amazing as yours. But, alas, I can't. On the other hand, if I could, I probably wouldn't spend so much time with my doggie - training obedience, agility, tracking...

Aga said...

Lovely photos, as usual :)

tamara8205 said...

Looks like a Christmas present in the making!

Yolene said...

Miam! It looks like a great cookbook to have. And I discovered for the past eight years living in Ireland that marmalade is an important staple to have in one's kitchen. I would love to try recipes in this book as I prefer homemade things.

robyn.jenns@hotmail.com

Sally said...

I met Elizabeth a few weeks ago (and it turns out, we knew each other from way back!) and she showed me the book. I was so excited to see your photos. The book is a small treasure and the photos inspire you to MAKE the marmalade. It is truly a little gem that needs to be in any cookbook collection, and if you are a marmalade lover (me!) then it is really a must-have.

Congratulations on all your changes. You are such a hard worker (it shows in all that you do.) I wish you all happiness in your new home! Thanks for sharing your beauty with the world :)

JD said...

Roxanne said...

How beautiful the images are! Congratulations!

reikeAdams said...

You're such a stellar photographer and it's become such a routine that when I want to procrastinate from studying I read your blog over and over again!

Vicki Bensinger said...

Congratulations on another wonderful book. You're a woman of many talents. I think what I love most about blogging is getting to know others through their blog and watching them flourish.

When I first started reading your blog years ago I added your blog to the top of my favorites bar on my PC so I could get to it quickly. Between your incredible recipes and photos I was so inspired. Now you've become a well known food photographer. I've loved hearing you talk about and create your own book and now helping others with theirs. It gives me and I'm sure others out there inspiration to know that if we all follow our passion good things can happen.

Congrats and I wish you many years of success and happiness. Marmalade looks stunning!

Raindrops on Roses said...

Those look so delicious!

Marina said...

Karine Keldany said...

The book looks amazing and the photography is beautiful. Makes you want to scoop some right out iof the jar.
Moves are hard. I know how it feels. I have moved myself twice in less than 2 years. Very hectic and challenging. It does help though to just focus on the adventure ahead and relax. Congrats again for your new job. It sounds wonderful. Best wishes Helene.

Rachel Mary said...

What a beautiful post, and a great giveaway!

Andrea said...

Beautiful photography! Maybe this is why I am so drawn to cookbooks, not so much the recipes but the photos. Hmmm... Best of luck in transitioning to a new job and a new location.

Corinne Loveland said...

Looks delicious! Congrats!

silarem said...

Your approach to food photography is so unique that even though there are foods that I’m not very fond to, when I see them in your pictures they look inviting and tempting! By the way the book looks very interesting; I was really surprised to see the membrillo which leads me to think that the book has traditional marmalades but definitively includes famous marmalades from around the world!

Mónica López said...

Congratulations for the new goals!!
The pictures are amazing...

Annetje said...

Bok looks fantastic, with stunning photo's

Helena said...

Stunning photos, thank you.

Gaia said...

You deserve all of it!

Kim Ioc said...

dickaiello said...

Though I didn't know you, we call the same city home, and I felt such a sense of loss that you would be leaving Charleston. Thankfully, your blog lives on as you so generously share your lovely photos, delicious recipes, and adventures in a "new land." Enjoy your wonderful new life!

It's so lovely to hear about this new chapter in your life. Wish you all the best! I remember my first and only batch of marmalade, made when I was sixteen with my mother's homegrown kumquats. Was beautiful golden deliciousness!

Maçã Canela said...

I never really loved marmalades (i believed they were chocolate's worst enemy) until i recently had in my hands a ton of vegetables from my garden to preserve somehow. So I decided to give it a try... I got totally addicted not only to making marmalade but also to eating it too. Oh so many years i've wasted...

SkinnyMommy said...

You have an incredible talent to turn food into art. Beautiful!

theladyofhtelake@comcast.net said...

This looks live a lovely book. Marmalade is one of life's finest treasures. Can't wait to make some.

Jana Hyde said...

I'm so glad your finding your new job rewarding already. There are some wonderful people in my hometown of Birmingham. And some great food to photograph! I will be looking for photo credits in my Southern Living magazines... I bet I'll know your photos before I see the credits. And I'm a little jealous of your three-box move. I just moved to Seattle, and am still unpacking. The nice part is that I have a plum tree in my new yard and now I can make plum jam!

yvette2250 said...

I would love to learn how to make marmalade, jams and jellies. It just seems so classically southern.

Many thanks.

I love marmalades. My lemon ginger kumquat marmalade was my first experience making a marmalade and only my 3rd jam or preserve ever. I love it as a bright bit summer over my morning yogurt!

Helene, your words inspire me as much as your photos. I am also loving the jam. I have got a preserving itch that I need to scratch, so I'm off to pick some fruit from the hedgerows and sterilize some jars.

milliestar said...

what a delightful looking book - it would be a pleasure to have this on my cookbook shelf. My beloved belated grandmother was the "Marmalade Queen" and I always love to make a batch each year in honour of her. I feel so lucky that she imparted her culinary skills to me before she passed away.
