From the 70’s to today
Leak and Potato Soup
I took this picture for a photo contest in my food photography facebook group and I ended up discovering a really good recipe. The contest was about remaking cookbook pictures from the 70s. I spent hours going thought my mom’s old cookbooks, some recipes mede me nostalgic, remembering the fun times in the kitchen as a little girls. The pictures were the fun part, food photography changed so much. Style, composition and lighting, everything is different.

Here I picked a simple recipe, leak and potato soup, ideal for a winter family dinner. I started this project by updating the picture, but in the way I updated the recipe too. I left a few pieces of vegetable in it to increase texture. I substitute cream with plain greek yogurt and add parsley for a freshest taste 🙂
Ahh, and let’s not forget the croutons crispy and delicious in a creamy soup!
