A-Z Fruit and Veg Photo Project: B is for Broccolini

Broccolini is a mix between broccoli and kai-lan, or Chinese broccoli, and has longer stalks and smaller florets than its broccoli counterpart. Its delicate nature can enhance the presentation of any meal. I like it because it is a vegetable that you can eat with your fingers without being frowned upon!

The paper in this photos is a little distracting, but I wanted to convey a sense of ‘freshness’ – bursting out of the paper bag. Next time I will try to achieve this without the distracting nature of its height.


Green is my favourite colour and there is really something about the grey-green in the florets that I find special.


Once again, I had trouble deciding which photos to include. These photos, although they exhibit similar styling, highlight different elements of the vegetable, which evokes individual feelings.

  1. Man, Rachel, you are SO good at taking pics of food! I love the colors, the way you’ve laid the brocolini out, the use of the wood, paper, string, and even water! AND I love the fact that you have the same knife we do! lol

    It’s something, too, that you state that these photos “evoke individual feelings” – and yet it’s food, but how true! We are funny that way, aren’t we?

    • Well thank you! This particular shot went better than expected. Yes we are. Food has really changed in the last few decades. It’s really an art-form these days – and highly competitive at that.
      I am really trying to apply what I am learning, and I am glad you noticed all those elements!
