New Year, New Blog

5 January 2006

I hope all of you had a lovely Christmas and new year with plenty of good food and lots of fun. I want to thank you again for all the feedback and kind messages, I’ve been inspired by so many passionate cooks all over the world and I’m really looking forward to continuing to be so!

For a bit of a special start to the new year, I’ve launched another Nordljus – the same name but mainly with non-food pics. I like taking pictures of other things as much as (possibly more than) food and thought it’d be nice to share some of them.
The site hasn’t got many pictures yet, but I’m hoping to update it daily (well, I am going to try!), so please take a look when you have time. I’m afraid you’ll notice a disproportionate number of shots of my cat – he‘s been modelling for me for some time, although by now he’s rather fed up and gives me a cold look every time I point my camera at him!

I wish all of you a wonderful and happy new year.

  • Good morning,

    My name is Gilles Renusson. I was the captain of the 1991 USA pastry team which competed at the world pastry cup in Lyon with/against the Japanese team lead by Hidemi Sugino. I am looking for a source to purchase Hidemi’s pastry books. I found your site on Yahoo and hope you can help me in my search. Happy New Year. Yhank-you for your response.

    Sincerely, Gilles Renusson.

  • the sparkle from your apple (even if it’s blurred) is just too distracting :P imho, non-food photos are also "food", though inedible, they are "essential food" for the soul, especially of a photographer.

    Congratulations to your new blog section. can’t wait to see more beautiful shots from you..

  • Your non-food photos are just as gorgeous as your food ones. You are truly gifted. Pray tell, have you ever taken photography lessons before? You are a pro! Well done and keep it up...
