Triple Chocolate Macadamia Cookies by DulcetEpicure Triple Chocolate Macadamia Cookies by DulcetEpicure
I baked these little suckers today for a Vogue Publication Photo shoot, the actual purpose of this was for a Christmas article though these were left over and begging to be filmed so this was my... personal side project I guess.

What you are looking at is a Lindt Chunky Chocolate and Macadamia Cookies on the Left and Raspberry Lindt Chocolate Cookies on the Right.

...Oh and a glass of icy cold milk, you cannot have freshly baked cookies without a glass of milk, there are rules that need to be observed in the consumption of COOKIES!

THIS IS DULCET EPICURE

All dishes you see on ~DulcetEpicure are created, cooked, presented and photographed by myself. I believe if you are going to photograph food you should first have an intimate knowledge of each image, I'm all about the journey!

My eternal gratitude for your support...

They're gorgeous. I love how even though this is in color and clearly modern, there's such subtle variations between cookies and twine that it almost has a hint of sepia timelessness.

Oh thank you.
Yeah the green tinge is there to signify night without it being completely dark, this was originally set up for a Christmas shoot and the cookies were for santa but he took too long and they didn't last 5 mins. I love the traditions were allow into our lives at Christmas, such silly traditions yet kids especially get so excited about the cookies, it makes that moment they wake up really worth it.

I know I use to go straight for the cookies each Christmas morning! :P

Oh man, we never had cookies for breakfast celebrating chanukah!

(I will find a way to rectify that next year...)

Oh dear... No chance!
Honestly I cannot give it to you, the actual recipe is a secret... but... this is close: [link] just swap white chocolate for dark. :)
It's the best I can do.
I know it sounds pompous of chefs to keep recipes secret but our recipes are our lifestyle and we spend hours perfecting them.

sigh. that's very cruel, but I understand. xD I like baking, and you wouldn't get a single hint out of me, so, no, it's not pompous, it's just... cheflike xD

The recipe I sent you in the link is kick arse and a slightly less technical version of what you see, a user friendly version! :)

What a beautiful presentation! I love the slight contrast between the cookies' colors, and the starker contrast between the cookies and the plate and milk.

I have no idea how I missed this comment for almost a month, sorry for the very late reply.

Thank you kindly, it seems my deliberate toning of the image is no longer a mystery, you have a very well trained eye for these things! :)

I love the rope-like ribbons around the cookies! Nice mix of textures :)

Yeah I didn't want the shoot to become a cliche like so many cookie inspired images, I like keeping it Earthy.
