Fat Tabby Cat Studio is my food blog experiment. Here I will post recipes that I tried and loved. They are at the image of what I eat: lots of veggies, soups, and stews, but more importantly: TONS if cakes and sweets.
This blog doesn’t have a particular theme, but globally I would say that my recipes are simple. They just need few ingredients and simple equipment. This is really important to me because I have a tiny kitchen and don’t want to be bothered with appliances and gadgets.
Who’s the Fat Tabby Cat?
It’s my cat Darwin. I adopted her in 2014 in Montréal. She loves watching me doing my photoshoots. Sometime she will even participate. She is a very curious cat that loves eating! I work generally from home and I glad I have her at my side!
Who am I?
I am Aurélie and I am a commercial food (and drink) photographer. I am a freelancer based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I work with restaurants, producers and agencies. If you want to see my work, please check out my portfolio!
I am 30 something, born and raised in Paris. I’ve lived 5 years in Montréal and now I am in Edinburgh. Before being a photographer I was a palaeontologist. I was doing research in a lab at the Natural History National Museum of Paris.
Cooking has always been part of my life but I would have never expected it would be part of my job as well! I’ve learned my first recipe when I was 5 (I baked madeleines) and I’ve never looked back since then! It’s only in second year of my photography school when we had our first food assignment that I had an epiphany: I felt at the right place and this is what I wanted to do.
I decided to create this blog because I have requests from lots of people asking me the recipes of my portfolio’s photos. On a personal level, it’s also a good way to keep track of what I create and try. It is also a great way to challenge me to shoot more regularly!
Thank you very much for taking the time of reading this long intro! Let me know if you have anything you want to ask!
