Robert Burns Hotel – food from the new spring/summer menu

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.

Shot some portraits and interiors at the Robert Burns Hotel. This hotel is truly Spanish, even Spanish staff. Chef Ivan Saiz and Jose Ortega looked after me with some Iberico ham  and espresso in between shots.
