Hi, I'm Evan.
add1tbsp was born from my desire to push myself creatively — both in the kitchen and behind the camera.
From a young age, I've always been fascinated by how simple, whole ingredients could transform into something spectacular. Prowling around farmer's markets taught me that there was something more to food. Biting into a crisp apple just picked from the tree or the sugary crunch of fresh corn kernels. These tangible elements of what food is and where it comes from have stuck with me and shaped the way I cook.
At the same time, I picked back up photography, trading in my father's heavy film Nikon for my first digital SLR. I started blogging back in 2010 as a way to chronicle every dish, drink, and crumb from my kitchen. My skills weren't great, but the passion and energy were there. I wanted to capture and share stories behind good, seasonal cooking.
Now, add1tbsp serves as a destination for both the home cook and aspiring food photographer to create and capture beautiful, delicious food every day. Here, you'll find inspired recipes made with seasonal ingredients as well as food photograph tips on how to capture the perfect bite.
This is good food made with care and designed to inspire countless meals with friends and family.
