Arriving soon is the season of celebrating with food, sweets, and most importantly drinks of all shapes and sizes. James and his crew teamed up with Air Miles Magazine to shoot some classic winter-month drink recipes for you to try this year, complete with video HOW-TO’s to walk you through making your own cozy cocktails to keep you warm one of these cold winter nights. Cheers!

Find out a few new ways to spruce up your regular chicken dinners this Spring, and learn a bit about heritage breeds in the newest issue of Food & Drink Magazine!
We shot the cover, as well as the “Chicken Coup” spread, with the help of Food Stylist Christopher St.Onge:
Meet “The Frankies”!
On set this week shooting with Dean McDermott for his new cookbook “The Gourmet Dad”. Food stylist Claudia got a quick visit from her husband Justin, and her son Toby.
For a full post of what she’s been cooking up, check back next week! But if you’re in the mood for a GREAT meal this weekend, visit The Frankies at their amazing restaurant Actinolite.
Until then, happy Friday from the Tse team…
Yes….it is inevitable. Fall has arrived…
Even though we also love Autumn, where did summer go?!
Just last week we received the new Food & Drink Autumn 2013 issue on our doorstep. With darker tones, and heartier flavours, this issue brings a cozy feel, stepping us farther away from those long summer evenings.
It’s a full house today with Food & Drink Magazine, and their behind the scenes video crew for LCBO.
We snuck in like a fly on the wall, and snapped some scenes while they filmed for the day. Check back to view the finished video!

Just like when you were a kid!
Who doesn’t love a hot bowl of chicken noodle soup when you’re feeling down? We spent last Friday with food stylist Lasha Andrushko, and props by Laura Branson, creating some kid friendly looks for Lipton’s original chicken noodle soup.
Missing food props? No problems there.. 😉
Just check the block for some wild grape vines!
Getting creative today with Sobeys on set
Can’t beat a frozen pizza when you’re feeling a little too lazy to cook!
Last Friday we worked on McCain packaging once again, and baked up some Four Meat Rising Crust Pizzas with Food Stylist Lasha, and the Anthem team.
The team got a boost of energy this week shooting with Anna for Liquid Nutrition, with stylist Ruth Gangbar. If you don’t already own a Vitamix blender, you should!
Creating all sorts of immune boosters, we all got a taste of earth’s finest juices…although you’d really have to get used to the wheatgrass…
Last week we wrapped up yet another successful project with VH Sauces!
For a full 12 days, and with the help of food stylist Lasha, the team took a taste trip around the world. From India, to Thailand and back, she ploughed through a variety of new recipes, filling up the studio with exotic smells. Aside from one minor wound, we made it out alive and well. Big thanks to everyone involved, and for working so hard to make this a success.
