Dog gone: Theo Randall’s final meal
What would your last meal be?
Each week in ‘Cook’ The Guardian newspaper’s food supplement, a different top chef is interviewed in a lighthearted look at how they would spend their last meal, what it would be and why…
For these images I selected props and styled to help visualise the last bites of Padma Lakshmi, Arthur Jeffes, Pierre Koffman, Dan Doherty, Tom Kerridge, Theo Randall, Kelis and Tim Hayward.
The animated cinemagraphs are by photographer Emma Lee.
‘The story of the dream changes with each retelling’: Arthur Jeffes’ final meal
French leave: Pierre Koffmann’s final meal
‘I’ve hunted and gathered things from everywhere’: Padma Lakshmi’s final meal
‘By the time I’m done cooking, I just want to order pizza’: Kelis’s final meal
“I’d want someone to make a spiralised courgette salad and then pour it down the waste disposal”: Tim Hayward’s final meal
Seaside send-off: Tom Kerridge’s final meal
Homecoming: Dan Doherty’s final meal
As an alumna of Edinburgh College of Art and having worked as a professional textile designer for many years, I had an urge to draw and paint again, a different expression of creativity from my styling. My love of flowers and drawing were combined in a capsule collection of twenty original floral ink drawings that I made available for sale. The drawings are expressive direct studies of flowers, using Indian ink and Chinese brushes on off-white, acid-free 300gsm art paper.
I framed the drawings and styled them at home where photographer Beth Evans captured these images.
Produced in early 2015, each drawing is unique, signed and dated on the front and available for purchase directly from me or through Little Lake Flowers.
All drawings sold out before it was possible to make them available for purchase online.
