Plated Stories Wins the Best Photo Based Culinary Blog at the IACP awards!

  One year ago, sitting in a chilly, impersonal airport terminal in San Francisco, high on a weekend IACP conference, we came up with the idea of Plated Stories.

  This past year has been an extraordinary adventure, Plated Stories has brought us such joy and pleasure not only as a space that allows each of us to explore our creative urges, do just what we like, but we plain and simply love working together. We laugh and laugh together, the way we work together perfectly, every so often we are amazed at how the photos and texts enhance each other despite us not having an idea of what the other is doing - this collaboration is a constant source of happiness and personal inspiration.

 Winning the IACP Award for Best Photo-Based Culinary Blog is the cherry on top.

 Per aspera ad Astra, a rough road leads to the stars.

 Thank you to our wonderful friends and readers who inspire us every day. Thank you to the IACP for this immense honor.

 Ilva & Jamie

 PS. This Friday, March 21, join us on a live google+ hangout hosted by Jenni Field in which we will be talking about Plated Stories the blog, the Plated Stories Workshop, food photography and food writing.
