Photo Project 2016


       Because the Gourmet Snapshot is a studio of Culinary Photography and Food Styling, this project aims to rediscover the history of culinary preparations in the oldest pubs in London.

       For centuries, London’s pubs have served as meeting places, social spaces, rooms to relax and unwind, places to talk business, to eat and drink, to find comfort for an evening or solace for an hour.
Pubs have been at the center of British culture for centuries, and the writer Samuel Pepys himself, describing them as the heart of England. London pubs are brimful of history, many of their names reflecting either an historic event or personage.

If you want, you can find more information about the pubs and their history, here :  The history of pubs.
