My name is Ray Toves. I am a classically trained chef, food photographer, and food business entrepreneur. I am taking a bit of a break from recipe development and food photography for clients to help with my sister’s hard cider company.
All the food posts on this blog were prepared, styled, and photographed by me. I started this blog Sept. 5, 2016, in response to requests for recipes for the food in my photographs posted on my website (www.raytovesphotography.com) and on my Instagram feed (@whatscookingatrays). Having this blog will make it much easier for those interested in the recipes to view them at their convenience.
In addition to recipes, my blog posts include at least one “before” photo of mise-en-place (list of ingredients) for the respective dish, one or more photos of intermediate steps if appropriate, and one “after” showing the final plated dish.
My cooking can best be described as classic, traditional dishes from around the world updated for modern tastes. You’re welcome to post questions in the comment section.
Once again you may view my photography on my website (www.raytovesphotography.com) and my Instagram feed (@whatscookingat_rays).
