I wanted to inspire people to think about what they eat. Food is not only a bite we put into our mouth. It is a combination of processes which all affect what is finally consumed by eating. By deconstructing recipes into individual steps I wish to create an easy to approach and positive way of inspiring people to cook from scratch and explore how food is constructed.

The project started from a series of individual pieces in 2009. The very first photo was the Cinnamon Rolls recipe. The series slowly evolved into a book published in Finland by WSOY (2012) and in Taiwan by I’m Publishing (2016). The book is not a normal cookbook but something that ties the world of art and cooking together.

All 62 images are produced by myself. It means first I had to learn how to cook the dishes, then do the groceries, prepare and style the food, take the picture, post-process, write and finally clean up. I made my own rules and it was very important that all the food was consumed. I despise the throw away culture that is common in the food photography scene. I also wanted to shoot all the steps with a single shot and not compose the final image of separate images. So steps that are represented in the photographs were made into the final dish instead of throwing everything away. This food was shared with neighbours and friends.

Tried to do a similar thing the other night but it didn't turn out to look that great; it's a good idea to know before you do ;-)

Thank you for giving me an idea for dinner (but I use several layers of filo instead of making shortcrust)

Early spring is the best for picking and prepping this soup. It is full of vitamins and very healthy.

Most types of fish are polluted with Mercury and other chemicals. Only eat it once a week.

Sugar & flour is a poor diet. Try sourdough bread with Jam or Peanut butter.

interesting. I've never heard of radish pasta. Some of these foods pictured are things I've never seen which is cool. That's part of why I love to be on a site where people from all over the world are contributing content and comments. I get to learn about all kinds of random things and I get to "meet" and talk about all kinds of things. I'm kind of addicted to this site right now.

Rhubarb leaves=poison. The stem is okay, though. Funny how that works.

Broth wihtout vegetables is no broth, just fish-flavored water.
