Pancake Day has fallen in the school holidays – yes! We’ve got time to do it properly, which means Abii indulging in a spot of baking, me in a bit of pancake photography and the boys (Nic, Sam, Ferb and Buster) in stuffing their faces!
Mixing the perfect batter was down to Nic, with no measuring involved, just a few years of experience (!).
Abii makes the best pancakes this side of Northwich and was firmly in charge of the frying pan. Sam took a break from learning a bit of coding just long enough to scoff a few pancakes with chunks of chocolate melting deliciously inside them and Ferb and Buster got lucky with a few scraps (or unlucky in Buster’s case as it didn’t stay down for long!).
I gave instructions for two perfect, golden brown pancakes to be saved for me to photograph in the studio, where I’d set up a little tableau. The pancakes were as delicious as they looked, although they were cold by the time I got round to eating them!
I run courses and offer one to one tuition to beginners and improvers, including food photography courses, so if you’d like help getting to grips with your camera then click on the links and take a look.
