Lara Ferroni is a former tech geek turned food geek who spends her days exploring the food culture of the Pacific Northwest. As a writer and photographer, you might spy her digging through bargain bins for the perfect prop, or dreaming up delicious new ways to use teff, or eating and drinking her way through Portland's vibrant food culture.
Her photos have been featured in websites and magazines such as Gourmet Live, Epicurious, Imbibe Magazine and Edible Communities, as well as over 10 cookbooks, including her own, Doughnuts (Sasquatch Books). Her second cookbook, Real Snacks: Your Favorite Childhood Treats Without all the Junk (Sasquatch Books), ships in the fall of 2012. Her food photography how-to book, Food Photography: Pro Secrets for Styling, Lighting & Shooting (Pixiq) has just hit bookstore shelves.
