Styling for 'Market Life' magazine with Ursula Ferrigno and John Holdship

I worked with chef Ursula Ferrigno and photographer John Holdship recently on a 'Market Life' magazine shoot for Borough market ( Ursula runs Books for Cooks cookery courses in London ( ), and as well as teaching at the prestigious Leiths School of Food and Wine, she also has many books to her name (Bringing Italy Home, A Gourmet Guide to Oil and Vinegar, Ursula Ferrigno's Complete Italian Cookery Course to name but a few). She is incredibly passionate, and her excitement for food, teaching cooking and life in general is totally infectious, so it's always a real joy to spend the day with her.

Ursula had written a recipe for a beautifully simple french dish, a tian. John did a stunning job as always of photographing this rustic dish, and I assisted with the styling of it, using old crates and pieces of wood that we borrowed from Borough Market traders. It turned out to be one of my favourite shoots we've done for the Market Life magazine actually. There's something so beautifully simple about the dish itself and the final photographs, so I think everyone was pleased with the outcome!
