What Katie Ate, Katie Quinn Davies

This is the Dutch cover
A girl begins a blog, the blog becomes huge and the girl gets a bookdeal, it sounds like a fairytale, right? But sometimes this actually happens. No, not to me, sadly J, but it did happen to Katie Quinn Davies.
She was a graphic designer in Dublin and moved to Australia to be with the love of her life. She wanted another career and finally decided in 2009 to become a food stylist and photographer. I did not know this was an actual profession, but it seems it is.
To showcase her skills, she started a blog called What Katie Ate and the rest, as they say, is history.
What Katie Ate is now cookbook and in it are tons of recipes for breakfast, lunch, salads, snacks and deserts. There are recipes for fish, meat, pasta’s, curry’s and soups, it is not restricted to just one cuisine.
The recipes are easy to follow and often start with a little anecdote about this dish.
And I must say, the book looks amazing. The photographs are all by Katie’s hand and she manages to make everything beautiful and scrumptious and delicious and gorgeous. The photographs make you want to go into the kitchen and start cooking. And that is the best kind of cookbook to have.

Another great addition to my cookbook collection!

  1. Regarding you not knowing that a food stylist and photographer was a career - I feel like everything and anything is a thing nowadays! Haha!

    This book looks interesting. If the front cover is anything to go by, then I can only imagine how beautiful the meals inside are!

    1. I think you are right, if you want a career, then it is a career :-)
