Banana & Honey Bread {Perth Food Photography}

This month’s food photography challenge was to 1) make food with something from farmer’s market and 2) incorporate people into some of the food photographs. Some of my US friends said that their local farmer’s markets were really slow at the moment, but farmer’s markets seem to boom here in Perth all year round, and there’s plenty to choose from across the city! I suppose that’s one of the perks of living in Perth?

I enlisted the help of my friend Aimee and we ventured out to the Wanneroo markets! I saw cherries imported from the US being sold there and wondered where the other fruits sold there really came from. In the end, I decided to make Banana Bread despite the fact that it doesn’t take advantage of the freshness of market fruits and vegetables. I really wanted to try making something with blood oranges but I wasn’t feeling too adventurous. Besides, banana bread is something Tom really loves to eat and I also felt it would be an interesting challenge to photograph as it is a rather plain-looking food. For this challenge, I ended up buying a tub of Blackbutt honey from the lady at Moore River Honey (too shy to be photographed) to incorporate into the banana bread.

I’ve put most of the photos behind the cut because there are a LOT of them today – if you want to see them, click through to read on. I haven’t added many words in the post today because the photos speak for themselves :) When you’re finished, be sure to follow our food photography circle all around the world to the farmer’s markets in Canada with Tammy Bilodeau, Whitecourt Photographer.

Nothing says banana bread like actually having bananas in the photograph, right?

I used this recipe to make the Honey Banana Bread – I liked how it turned out! In future, I wouldn’t bother making the lemon honey syrup, it’s a little too sweet for me, I just love eating toasted banana bread with a generous helping of softened butter ontop ;) Well done making it to the end of this mammoth post, hope you enjoyed it!

    Tammy Bilodeau - Ahhh Sabrina these are great! You really captured the feel of your local market, it looks like you have a plethera of items to choose from. The banana bread looks scrumptious and I really enjoyed the simplicity of your set up, oh and can I just mention how much I LOVE that B&W with the flour being sifted! Such a great shot. Love it

    Allison Jacobs - I just love the way you documented the whole process from shopping to cooking to the end results! The bread looks so yummy with the nuts & honey that I wish I had a slice right now for breakfast!

    Kim - Liv Life - Oh, Sab!! What gorgeous photos!! I’m actually somewhat envious of your Perth market. Even though I’m in the heart of produce country, our market has been a bit bare lately. Sort of the same thing at every stall. Tomatoes have been gorgeous though!
    Love the banana bread, and I really love that b&w photo, and I usually don’t go for black and white. Lovely!
