Vanessa has been photographing food for the past 15 years and her camera has taken her from Shinjuku to Oaxaca to Paul Bocuse's kitchen. Travel and food assignments have allowed her to see and taste the world. Her family knows not to eat their food before she has snapped it on her iPhone and uploaded to her Instagram, a foodie's visual diary. She has photographed various cookbooks but this is her first time as author, where she enjoyed complete creative freedom to create a beautiful and functional cookbook with a difference.
