Last month I had the privilege of photographing chefs William Preisch and Joel Stocks of HoldFast Dining at their new location in the front room of the Urban Winery Fausse Piste. They are a remarkable duo creating meals that are both beautiful and delicious. Typically they serve 9 courses that are carefully paired with wine, which I found the 2 times I have had the opportunity to dine with them to be outstanding. It was a food photographer’s dream! Not surprising Hold Fast Dining was chosen as the Oregonian’s restaurant of the year for 2014. The courses that I photographed and yes I did get to consume them, included razor clams, squid, sturgeon, my favorite: foie gras, pork coppa, and 4 desserts! As you may have already assumed, I would highly recommend making a reservation to this innovative restaurant.
