Plates with Playfulness and Charm by Catherine Ferraz

This photograph was taken at Salt Plage Beach Restaurant located in Antigua. The plate speaks for itself in the character and charm, the plantain is very proud and seems quite excited, and vibrant red pepper roasted to perfection holds unough texture and sweetness. It reminds me of the something from the cat in the hat movie… The natural light at the beach in the mid-morning assisted in enhancing the vibrant colors and texture of the ingredients. Locally grown plantain and sweet peppers are the star here, such a fun way of plating.

Catherine is unique in many ways. She puts out her best in whatever she does especially when it comes to Food Photography. I I have seen many of her work and enjoy them all.
