INTERVIEW WITH @LIANN__B

Image
Your food/drink photos on Instagram are amazingly aesthetic and dream-like — how did your passion start?
I used to be a frequent cafe hopper in the past, as I always enjoyed the cafe atmosphere. As a home person, I started my "home cafe", and began decorating my home like a cozy cafe. I cooked & styled the food, and of course without wasting my effort, I took photos & shared them with my friends. I found photography as a way to express my passion for food, and am lucky enough that I had some guidance from a close friend who loves photography as well. I did a lot of research on food photography. After a lot of trial and error, I questioned myself: “Why do I need to follow others? I should have my own style which is my home cafe”. That’s when I started to make my IG like a cafe’s account, but it’s actually my home, with the food that I passionately created.
Image
What do you do for a living, and how do you balance work and passion?
I’ve been working in the fashion industry for years as a Fashion Designer & Merchandiser. Being creative is a must in my everyday life. I love doing all sorts of styling & matching, even with food that I love! With creativity, everything can turn into something else, as long as you don’t restrict any possibility with those common knowledge.

Any personal tips for your viewers on taking mesmerizing photos of their Matcha creations?

Bring out the best of the main subject that you need to present in the photos. Of course when it comes to food/drinks, the food in the photos should not only look good by its plating, but it must also be appetizing.

I also chose dinnerware that best matches with the food/drinks that I’ve made. Sometimes a fancy background can be too overwhelming, so it’s better to keep the background as simple as you can.

How did you come up with Malty Goma Ajisai recipe?

I always have protein shake / smoothie for my breakfast, it's fast & easy, and I can make any flavor that I prefer on that day. If I prefer matcha for the day, i just mix with Vanilla protein.

AJISAI / Matcha is very suitable to pair with nutty flavor, so I added AJISAI / Matcha to my peanut butter protein shake, as expected it tasted good!

Image
How did you find using AJISAI / Matcha in your recipe?
AJISAI / Matcha is much nuttier compare to the other Matcha, I found it might be the most suitable for recipes that usually contains nuts, like breads/tarts.

Personal tips for your recipe viewers when working with Matcha recipes.
Always remember they are the main character in the recipe. Be careful when using flavorful sweetener such as honey, coconut sugar or maple syrup, they may dumb down the amazing matcha flavours.
