"Fabulicious" Cookbook Food Shoot

We had the food shot for my new book "Fabulicious: Teresa's Italian Family Cookbook" this week in an amazing little studio in NYC. It's so much fun. They have a chef who makes my recipes, a food stylist who put them on pretty plates (I got to help pick out the styles of course), and then the photographer works his camera magic. They have so many little tricks: like how they add the cheese on top of soup at the last minute so it doesn't melt. And you get to see all the pictures on the computer screen right after he takes them. Best part though is we get to eat the food when they're done with it. I know it's good because they use my recipes and I make this food all the time, but it's nice to have someone else cook for me once in awhile. Can't wait for you all to see the new book! It will be out in Spring 2011.

(I don't have any shots from Fabulicious yet, but here are some from Skinny Italian.)
