You might have noticed that I have been somewhat absent ever since I came back from my summer holidays. Well, the reason is no other than the launching of a beautiful and thrilling project. Along with Spanish bloggers Sandra from La Receta de la Felicidad and Pam from Uno de dos a new web has been launched... and what is it about? It is named 1080 fotos de cocina, meaning 1080 cooking photos. If there is a classic cookbook in Spain, that is the ubiquitous 1080 Recipes by Simone Ortega, considered by many as the Bible of Spanish cookbooks. As the classic version of the book is completely devoid of images, in this very visual era many "young" and not that young people miss a little bit of graphical guidance on the recipes. Here is where we thought we could be of some help...
That's why we summoned a well seasoned team of fellow bloggers and photographers and we have set out on a joint journey for photographing each of the 1080 recipes, one a day. A real adventure, don't you think? I invite you to check our web for some succulent photography by the following fellow bloggers (as well as the three editors, including myself):
Montse, Salseando en la cocina
Macu, Tengo un horno y sé cómo usarlo
Ingrid, My lovely food
Alba, Le fabuleux destin du chocolat
Cris, Crazy Tea Party
Ángeles, Cook me tender
Alicia, A mí lo que me gusta es cocinar
Linda, La letra con salsa entra
Ivana, My little things
Zaida, Can Colette
Silvia, Food and cook
María Luisa, Zerogluten
Lydia, Just a little bite
I started out with this photo of floating islands on custard...
Unfortunately we have not been granted permission to publish the recipes themselves, so only a personal comment is included with each recipe photo. However that is not a problem for our Spanish readers, as everyone has the book or knows someone who does...
What are you waiting for? Please visit us at 1080 fotos de cocina and make yourself at home. At least you'll leave with an urge to cook some Spanish food...
