Delectable Food, Great Photographs from Rob Davidson

Celadon Whistler: a Modern take on Traditional Korean

Linsey and I recently did a shoot for an interesting Korean style restaurant in Whistler BC.  Celadon Whistler takes traditional Korean dishes and gives them a sleek, modern twist, and their own unique style.

The owners, Sonny and Maggie Huh, came to my studio with all the ingredients prepared and ready to go for a busy day of shooting. Sonny worked closely with my food stylist, Linsey Bell, to prepare each dish for the camera. He was quite amazed by the difference between cooking for restaurant customer and preparing dishes to be photographed. The detailing, fiddling, and fussing that go into styling a photograph are way beyond what you could ever do during a busy dinner service! Here are the results:

Bulgogi Steak

Kimchi Noodle Soup

Bibimbap salad

Seafood Pancake

Sonny’s gourmet burger

By the way, the food tastes as amazing as it looks! We all really enjoyed sampling and savoring these Korean delicacies. Maggie and Sonny recently hosted an event in Vancouver to launch their new menu, and they got a great review in the Foodists blog, which also features many of the shots. If you have plans for visiting Whistler this winter don’t miss this great restaurant, and say hi to Maggie and Sonny for me!
