Save The Date: A Food Styling & Photography Workshop In France

   We had such a wonderful time and it was such a great success, that Aran, Stephanie and myself are so excited to announce that we will be doing another workshop in France! 
                         This is a hands-on workshop where we will learn about Aran Goyoaga of 
                         Cannelle & Vanille philosophy on food styling and composition, how to tell a story
                         through props, the basics of photography, and understanding and manipulating light, 
                         all in the beautiful  surroundings of the Perigord region of France. There will be visits to
                         local farmers’ markets, gardens, and the beautiful walnut groves the region is known for.
                         It will be 3 days of cooking, tasting, styling, photographing, and visual storytelling.

                       The workshop will take place from September 23-27, 2012, and be limited to just 8 people.
                            The workshop includes 4 days of cooking, styling and photographing food in a
                             beautiful manoir nestled up against a stone cliff overlooking a lazy river. The cost
                             is $2,240/person (for a shared room) and $2,740/person (private room) and
                             covers 4 nights accommodations in a luxurious bed and breakfast, 4 gourmet
                             breakfasts, 4 lunches, 1 dinner, transportation during workshop hours, 3 days of full
                             instruction, and 1 day of sightseeing in the area.

                             We are happy to announce that registration will be open on Thursday, January
                             26th at 1 p.m. EST (10am PST). This is how registration will take place:

                            1. Right at 1:00 p.m. EST a post will go live indicating an email address where you'll
