SHARING THE PASSION FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE, FOOD STYLING &

SHARING MY TWO PASSIONS

 

FOOD

Hola! My name is Laura, I was born in Barcelona, Spain, but I dreamt of escaping from the busy city life and living in some countryside surrounded by nature, cows and chickens. 

Finally, in 2012 I moved to a little town in the South of England and, while the only animals I'm surrounded by are my two cats, I can say I'm the happiest girl in the world.

My passion for food and cooking was born in the UK. I had never had any interest in cooking before that. Do you want to know a secret? When I was first living on my own, I phoned my friend to ask her if I had to use oil to fry an egg. I know, it’s shameful.

All the dishes published here are cooked by me. I get inspired to make these dishes by magazines and blogs I read, by the restaurants we visit and, of course, by my mum; my biggest fan who is still surprised by my hidden cooking skills. She sends me Spanish cookbooks or “grandma’s” delicious recipes, “so you don’t forget your Spanish roots”, she says. Take a look at my Spanish cuisine section!

But it isn’t all about Spanish food. The fact that S is British has opened my vision of the British cuisine. He has taught me the culture of his country and savoured their variety of food (apart from fish and chips). I love being surprised by British dishes so I try to make them quite often, such as this and this, except for mushed peas. My respect to those peas lovers but I think peas are the saddest food in Earth.

What you see here is what I enjoy eating at home. That’s why you’ll hardly ever find any raw tomatoes in my dishes. This is the only food I can’t stand, but after resolving the bad eating habits I had until my early thirties, I can say I am not a fussy eater. 

If you are still reading, it’s because you care about health and nutrition. That’s good! I try to avoid eating grain as much as I can. I don’t have an intolerance disorder, but at the age of 27, I had stomach issues, and it was at this point that I had to eliminate all grain from my diet and start eating real food. 

PHOTOGRAPHY

A couple of weeks before I started Lau Sunday cooks, I bought Plate to Pixel by Helene Dujardin to get the basic knowledges about photography. I owed a Canon 400D which I bought of my friend a year before and that I only had used it to shoot in automatic mode. 

My first ever food photo was for the post no.1 of Lau Sunday cooks. Despite my poor knowledge of photography, I really felt food photography could be the creative journey I was craving for, so since then, I haven't stopped self-learning, using trial and error, assisting photography workshops and getting influenced by others professional photographers which I admire such as Chris Court and Gentl & Hyers.

Photography is my therapy, which helps take my mind off day-to-day issues: it’s like a yoga class or a hot bath. I could spend hours creating endless stories with food and props and the best thing is all the incredible knowledge that’s just waiting to be uncovered.

Thanks so much for visiting. You can take a look at my portfolio and please feel free to read a few questions I get asked here
