The Robert Burns Hotel is just down the road from where I live and it's one of those places that's perfect to drop into for a cold Spanish beer and a quick bowl of tapas. It's also got tables out on the street, which means it's a good spot for people watching on Smith Street. I've done a blog post about a shoot I did with the Robert Burns chefs some time ago, and thought at the time that it would have been awesome to shoot their food – so I was excited when they got in touch to ask me to take some shots for their new spring/summer menu, which they're using on their website.
I had a great day shooting with the guys, who let me try some of the food while I was there (one of the better perks of the job!) and it was really good – I loved the Empanada de verduras, which was yummy filo pastry filled with vegies, and I reckon the chef, Ivan Saiz, has done a great job with the menu.
Thanks to Sorell Wilson, who did a brilliant job with assisting me on this job.
