Food Photography: Food for Royalty Recipe Book


One of the highlights of ShootCake’s 2016 was photographing for Aunty Julekha Gama’s recipe book, Food for Royalty.

It was an absolute privilege to have been part of the team responsible for realising Aunty Julekha’s decades-long dream.

I love that Aunty Julie’s recipes are so achievable and tasty (I have first-tongue testimony).

Copies can be bought online at The Purple Circle or check out the Food For Royalty Facebook page for offline stockists.

I am a freelance writer and photographer (look for me as ShootCake). I have an MA in Creative Writing from Rhodes University, Grahamstown and some of my work has appeared in local literary journals. A food pornographer by calling, I would like to one day create a confessional recipe book in measures of rhythm and breath.
