Jackie Alpers is an award-winning professional food photographer based in Tuscon, AZ. Jackie cooks, styles and photographs food and recipes in her natural-light studio and documents food & travel on location.
Her popular food photography and recipe blog “Jackie’s Happy Plate” showcases her culinary adventures as a Midwesterner transplanted to the Sonoran Desert. She is especially interested in the emotional, psychological and spiritual relationship that people have with food and drink because she believes that food lends itself to vast symbolism and interpretation and she loves the rituals surrounding it.
Today on the podcast we talk about Jackie’s belief that writing and photographing a cookbook is an inclusive process, along with her experiences as a full-time food photographer, and her ultimate desire to write her own cookbooks, which culminated in two books, one called Sprinkles: Recipes and Ideas for Rainbowlicious Desserts which explores the science of sprinkles (Sprinkology!), shares crafty methods for sprinkling, and offers a comprehensive guide to identifying and cooking with them and her most recent book published in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic - Taste of Tuscon.
