Claude Dagenais Captures The Spirit of the 2016 Future Chef Recipe Contest

Claude Dagenais Captures The Spirit of the 2016 Future Chef Recipe Contest

For the third consecutive year, the team from two humans participated in the future chef’s recipe contest organized by Pommes Qualité Québec. This contest regrouped this year 23 students from 8 different schools. It represents a real production challenge, since the photographer has only a few hours to illustrate all the recipes and capture the whirlwind in the kitchen. Claude’s experience as a culinary test bench photographer with many of Quebec’s top chefs is essential to the success of this endeavour.

Each student has one hour to prepare his contest entry, so the production team has to plan everything in detail to ensure that every dish gets a few minutes of glory simultaneously in front of the photographer’s lens and before the judges.

And the results are yummy as you can see. Click here and here.

It was with this idea in mind that we captured the following series of images.
