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....!

leesh said...

I feel like I need some good instruction when it comes to marmalades.I can never seem to find my groove which means I always have a few jars that don't make the holiday gift cut. Eeek.

kelli said...

i've tried marmalade once and it didn't go over so well with me, but i want to try it out again just to make sure it wasn't just the brand or how it was made. this would be perfect :)

Denise said...

Congrats on new beginnings. Change is such an amazing thing and so exciting. The book looks delicious as always. Cannot wait to check it out, being a fan of marmalades.

Ron said...

Earliest memory of marmalade. It's dark outside. Sleeping in the top of a "Devon Conversion" VW BUS camper. A gentle knock on the door and little bag left by the driver side wheel. Inside, made fresh that day from a local bakery, fresh rolls and a hearty marmalade. The memory may be nearly 40 years old, but I can still remember the taste of that marmalade.

JMFaus said...

Gorgeous photos! Love me some marmalade, but have never made it myself! Thanks :)

Andrea said...

Great photography. Foodl looks delicious and ready to eat. Yum.

Julia said...

Hi,

2011 was the year of marmalade, marmalade, and more marmalade. 2011 was probably the year of marmalade burnout since I made almost no marmalade this year. I would like 2013 to be the year of healthy marmalade integration into my preserving. Always glad to get new recipes.

Julia

Val said...

I am so happy for all your successes for you and for making them happen and following your dreams and making them realities.

I love jam-making, sweet & savory. What a great book idea!

Murai said...

Ahh, just in the process of packing up and moving myself. I hate it, lol. It's always bittersweet, these endings and beginnings. Plus, moving itself is SO stressful... I hope that you have some time to relax and take care of yourself.

I wouldn't mind packing up one of those lovely marmalade books. ;-)

Laura said...

Thanks for sharing the book pages. I love seeing the work of the cookbook shoot finally in print :) What a fun experience the shoot was!

l'étoile said...

The best marmalade I've tasted was in France. Homemade orange marmalade with the rind spread atop a slice of baguette with salted butter or nutella. Simply delicious.
I'd love to see if I could ever replicate that experience.

Celestine said...

Best wishes in your new adventures!

Uma said...

Marmalade is my favourite kind of jam. The book looks amazing! Would especially love a low-sugar recipe.

Tarte taart An said...

Dear Helene,

I love your work! I've been coming back to read your blog again and again. I love the way you say that opening up your heart to the universe has given you so much! It's such a beautiful manner to approach life that way. And, although I've always read your blog in silence, this time I'd like to write down a big 'Thank you' for sharing! As a (Dutch) foodblogger (tartetaartan.blogspot.com) your creations and stories are an inspiration to me. I found your blog a couple of years ago because of my interest in food photography and because you share your last name with my best friend Michelle Dujardin (http://all-about-zendrawing.blogspot.nl/p/about-me.html). Your beautiful names stand out! You're both creative; maybe you're family?! Good luck with this new chapter in life!
Anja

Liz said...

While you move on Helene, to pastures new (well done and wishes true!), your mention of marmalade takes me 40 years back to childhood. New Year, my dad would spend a week cooking up the Sevilles. At 83, he still does! Now, he's joined by me, across oceans in the Med, where my Sevilles are gifted over the garden wall from Maltese neighbours who don't know what to do with the bitter, Arab legacy oranges! Looking back, anchored somewhere solid, is how we best move on in life I feel. Love a copy!

Nicole said...

Beautiful book that I must have for my bookshelf. Thanks for sharing the recipe too.

Claire Elkins said...

It's stunning! I would love a copy!

Weaving my Life said...

Ooooo, this looks lovely! I haven't made marmalade in ages. This just might spark me into doing something about it.

ChiHa said...

Oh My! That book looks beautiful! I love orange marmalade, the only one in my family, and always have a jar in my fridge!

One of the most fun experiences of my life involved taking a marmalade class with 4 friends from work. I would love to win this book to remind me of that time.

Isa said...

Your words struck a chord with me: "How just opening up your guts and heart to the universe gives you ten times the hopes you sent out there." I needed that. I sat there, took a deep breath and re-read it a few times. Thanks for helping me let go of the frenzy and refocus on gratitude for a life full and fulfilling. Your compass is set is the right direction and all your life changes will certainly be for the best!

Amethyst said...

I would love to own the book. Beautiful book!

Samantha Erin said...

Anýzovka said...

It reminds me my move ... The cartons are stored in the truck, my house is empty, a glass of wine in hand, I see the path achieved and I look forward to new adventures. Three years ago, I realized my dream ... a new life in Provence :-)
I wish you much happiness and joy in your new life!

Congratulations on the new job and I wish you much joy. Thank you for the generous giveaway. I love making marmelades and jam and would love a copy to give mine new twist. Thank you!

I've recently started making marmalades, have had mostly not so great outcomes. But that's how you learn! Always learning more and looking forward to making a successful batch (or 2, or 5 or 10)!
