This is a collection of recipes and accompanying mouth-watering photographs. The recipes are all provided courtesy of Agata Melina, originally from southern Italy and now living in Derby in the UK.
This is just a small sample of recipes from Agata's kitchen, or 'Ristorante Agata' as family and friends fondly call it. The photographs are my representation of Agata's home cooking. I hope they do it justice and look as good as the food tastes.
My passions in life include my family, food and photography. My images reflect this passion. Specialising in food, still life and portrait photography, my creative approach and professional attitude ensure every project is treated with the same level of dedication, commitment and passion. My approach is clean, graphic and dynamic. Equally at home in the studio environment and on location, I use natural light wherever possible, combined with elegant styling, attention to detail and meticulous presentation. And I make a mean cup of tea too! x
