studio spaces: cannelle et vanille.
oh gosh. i have utter and complete studio envy — have i ever got it bad. i saw Aran Goyoaga of cannelle et vanille’s new seattle-based space and I nearly wept. how gorgeous is her new studio? i wrote her immediately and she generously agreed to let me share with you. aran is a Food Writer, Stylist and Photographer and also a James Beard Award Finalist for her Food Blog in 2013 & 2012. and now she’s offering classes — cooking classes, as well as food styling and photography workshops. oh, and did i mention that you get to eat the food? her cooking classes are followed by dining on the food you prepare. i think i may have to sign up for some of her classes, just so i can spend an extended amount of time her beautiful, creative studio space. i think if i want to learn from the best, this is probably a really good place to start. oh, and if you’re looking for a longer learning experience with aran, she’s also teaching at one of angela ritchie’s ace camps in august. yes, please.
you can visit her new online shop where aran’s showcases her upcoming classes, including classes with her chef friends and floral design with chelsea fuss — all of which are held in this beautiful space near Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle — a daylight photography studio with a fully-equipped kitchen and prop room. It’s also available to rent for photo shoots and private events.
i’ve been following aran’s food images for years, and they’re always just sublime — drool worthy. you can find recipes, as well as see more of her work by checking out her new book, Small Plates and Sweet Treats: My Family’s Journey to Gluten-Free Cooking, as well as following her lovely blog and visiting her portfolio. simply stunning, all of it.
