Food/Work: In The Kitchen at Giano
Earlier this month, I was hired by ScoutMob to photograph at East Village Italian restaurant, Giano for their new Hand-Picked series.
I shot as Chef Matteo prepared a few dishes from cooking to plating to the final dish in order to show what customers can expect from their hand-picked experience. Given the time I spent in the kitchen, it's no surprise that many of the outtakes from the shoot seemed appropriate for the Food/Work series.
Get a look into the kitchen at Giano after the jump.
Chef Matteo meticulously plated each dish.

Chef Matteo is teaching himself Spanish to better communicate with his staff in the kitchen. to help with that, he's written up a Spanish-Italian translation board, which he's posted on the wall.
