Just shot the New Menu at The Poet Laureate

Food Photography by www.RichardBudd.co.uk (C) 2016

Having established their reputation at the acclaimed Blue Vinny in Puddletown for great food, served in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, Alex and Nicky Ford have now taken over the Poet Laureate in Poundbury – creating exciting menus and providing a warm pub welcome.

The food is home-cooked and, where possible, the ingredients are sourced locally from the family farm, friends or trusted specialist suppliers. The wines have been chosen to complement the menu, and there is always a range of excellent guest ales on tap.

Since they returned to their home county of Dorset six years ago, Alex and Nicky have become even more passionate about producing the very best food at accessible prices, as well as extending a friendly welcome in a homely environment to locals and visitors alike.

Product Photography helps explain what it is they do…

Posted in Food Photography, Portfolio Events, Richard Budd News on February 25th, 2016 by RB

When it comes to building a website people are always in need of imagery to help explain what it is they do, the services and products they offer. Morrish&Banham wine merchants are no different.

We set to work showcasing the fine wine and fine Dorset food on offer at the tasting room. Cutaway (or close up macro) style photography that can be used for the website and the online promotional work. It’s always fun shooting great Dorset produce on location – getting to know the company and the people behind it. Great work here by Mark and Caroline. Watch this space for more and to find out more about M&B go to morrishandbanham.com

Whatever floats your goat: Charlotte Elmore

Posted in Food Photography, Richard Budd News on November 8th, 2013 by RB

The benefits of goat meat and why the kids are alright

In the past goats have kept a pretty low profile in the media, with their biggest claim to fame probably their starring role in The Billy Goats Gruff. More significantly, they’ve also been widely ignored as a food source in the UK.

http://hackneycitizen.co.uk/2013/11/06/goat-hackney/

And while this may sound like news that will have goats everywhere jumping for joy, it actually proves far more detrimental to them and us alike.

Goat has a great deal of health benefits over other traditional types of meat that are consumed in the UK. Far leaner than both lamb and beef, it also contains less cholesterol than its red meat counterparts. Perhaps more surprising is that goat meat contains less calories and fat than chicken, making it a far healthier choice than the more popular meats that are more readily available in the UK.

James Whetlor, owner of the Cabrito Goat Meat company, sheds light on the reason behind the lack of popularity of goat meat in the UK.

“What’s been happening is people have been historically trying to sell the wrong thing,” he said. “They sell the nanny goats which is like trying to sell mutton rather than lamb.”

While more mature goat meat does have a robust and gamey flavour, it’s also quite limited in that it can often be tough, and therefore needs braising over a long period of time. What James supplies is cabrito; the meat of a young kid goat. This means the meat is not only tenderer but also far more diverse in terms of how it can be prepared.

James said: “What makes the billy work is how versatile it is – you can roast the leg, braise the loins and even roast the shoulder.”

James’s company has become incredibly successful, supplying to restaurants and businesses all over the country.  Ethically motivated in his work, he discovered the benefits supporting the consumption of kid goats when he met Will Atkinson from Hill Farm Dairy.

Unfortunately, billy goats are the by-products of the dairy industry for where the female goat’s milk is needed for the production of cheese, meaning many kids are slaughtered within hours of being born. Mr Atkinson was looking for an outlet through which to solve this problem, as he was adamant he didn’t want to “bash his billies on the head.”

James first bought four billy goat’s from Hill Farm Dairy to rear for meat and prevent the unnecessary killing of them at birth. The business has continued to expand ever since, now selling around 50 goats a week. He said: “It’s turning into a medium sized operation, something which has come from pretty humble beginnings with just four billies.”

Cabrito goat meat is supplied to Hackney based butcher’s shop The Ginger Pig, part of the thriving area of shops tucked away in Victoria Park. Nicola Swift, Creative Food Director of the business explained their decision to stock goat meat.

“It was admittedly a fairly slow process, but this was more about us weighing up how to promote kid meat rather than anything else” she said. “It’s certainly growing, and with it featuring ever more prevalently on restaurant menus and more widely in the press, we expect this to continue.”

Those looking to get their hands on goat will also be able to find it at Ridley Road Market in Dalston, as well as served in a number of Caribbean restaurants and takeaways across Hackney.

But will there be a time in the future when goat meat will be stocked by chain supermarkets? James certainly believes so. “Absolutely” he said. “Partly because of the demographic nature of supermarkets, and also because of the second and third generation Muslims with middle class income in the UK who are looking for a quality supply of goat meat.”

You heard it here first – give goat meat a try with James’s delicious goat ragu recipe below:

Kid goat ragu with pappardelle

• 4 carrots, finely chopped

• 2 onion, finely chopped

• 6 celery stalks, finely chopped

• 4 cloves garlic

• Bacon or pancetta

• Knob of butter

• 1 kid goat shoulder (1.5-2 kilo)

• 2 red chillies, halved, deseeded

• 1 bouquet garni (rosemary, thyme and bay)

• 1/2 bottle white wine

• 1 Tin chopped tomatoes

• 2 liters chicken stock or water

• Grated pecorino or parmesan, to serve

• Olive oil

• Pappardelle pasta

Try and make the ragu at least a day before you need it.  A night in the fridge will improve the flavour.

Sweat the finely chopped carrot, onion and celery, chilli and garlic in the butter until soft, then remove from the pan.

Heat a tablespoon of oil in pan and place the kid shoulder in skin side down and cook on a medium heat for about 5 minutes until the skin starts to colour, adding more oil if you need to. Add the bacon or pancetta. Once its all browned, remove everything

Return the sweated veg to the pan with the bouquet garni, add the tomatoes and wine and reduce until the liquid has almost gone.

Place the kid shoulder on top of everything in the pan and pour your stock or water over until it almost covers it. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and cook, covered for about 1 ½ hours or until the meat is falling off the bone (To check, push it with a spoon and its should come away easily)

Once cooked pull the meat from the bone, discarding any bones and skin. Shred it and stir it through the sauce.

Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet.  Toss the pasta through the sauce and serve in bowls with the grated pecorino and chopped parsley or chives.

A great day shooting foodie photography for Jenkins&Sons – what a great place, great food, great staff and great space. WELL WORTH A VISIT IMHO!

Posted in Food Photography, Richard Budd News on September 9th, 2013 by RB

A great day shooting foodie photography for Jenkins&Sons – what a great place, great food, great staff and great space. WELL WORTH A VISIT IMHO!

A bit about the place – Fish, meat, real charcoal, British craft beers and beautiful wine and cocktails, in Penn Hill.

Inspired by Sidney Jenkins who built his butchers and fishmongers in the 1920’s. A respect for artisan pride and great food and drink. The finest fish and meat cooked over real coals and served with the best British craft beers we can find.

We’re open all day, every day from 9am until it’s late, and dark and we need to sleep, and no later than midnight. You can visit us just for a coffee, or a beer, or a slice of cake or a 3 course meal, basically, whatever you fancy, whenever you fancy.

The Richard Budd Photography – APP – Now available for FREE DOWNLOAD

Posted in Charity Work, Food Photography, Photography Tips, Portfolio Action, Portfolio Events, Portfolio Portrait, Richard Budd News, Wedding Photography on August 12th, 2013 by RB

Welcome to the Richard Budd Photography iPhone App.

I’ve always loved photography and am seldom without a camera.  Initially I collected photographs of objects, textures, signs and anything that would be useful in my work as a graphic designer.

I had studied typography and graphic design at university and began by working in motion graphic and video direction.

Dorset is my home area but, as you’ll see, I travel around the UK and worldwide as part of my work.

I’ve created numerous websites and enjoy creating animated sequences – making creative images has always been my thing.

Over the last 10 years my attention has turned more and more toward my photography.  I am inspired by action, movement, timing and capturing creative images.

I use lighting techniques to create those images in-camera.

This iPhone app gives you the chance to enjoy some of my portfolio – from travel and portrait work to sports and action images.

There is also a section offering free downloads of images which you can use as screen savers on your mobile devices.

And you can also send me your own photography for some feedback.
I believe we’ve all got it in us to take great pictures so I’ll email you back with tips and advice on how you can take better shots, whatever equipment you are using.

Enjoy having a look round!
