Dining Like a King – Bitter Sweet’s Catering Menu

Deremer Studios Jacksonville Culinary & Food Photography

Earlier in December, we had the pleasure of visiting Bitter Sweet Bakery and Eatery for another great photo shoot.  This time, they invited us to photograph a sampling from their delicious and decadent catering menu.  Along the way, we photographed (and ate) some of their amazing breakfast sandwiches and some holiday confections, too.   Check out all the great food, but be warned, you may incur an irresistible craving.

10 Years of Growth – Celebrating a Decade of Success with the Women’s Business Center

2014 10 Corproate - Women Business Center JaxChamber 16

Just last night we had the great pleasure of being a part of the JaxChamber Women’s Business Center’s (WBC) 10th anniversary celebration. After working with this fine group of folks for the past five years, it was great to celebrate a decade of education, innovation, and business empowerment with so many familiar faces!  As is typical for the the WBC, the ’10’ theme was all around, from commemorative buttons and chocolates, to the “Taste of Ten” featuring – you guessed it – 10 great catering companies who have been involved in the WBC over the past decade.  Here’s 10 more decades of success and growth!

Yum Yum – Shooting with Bitter Sweet Bakery & Eatery

2014 10 Culinary - Bitter Sweet Bakery & Eatery 01 - Cake

A few Saturdays ago, we had the pleasure of stopping by our favorite bakery, Bitter Sweet Bakery and Eatery, and shooting a mini-session to highlight a few of their delectable treats.   Their store, located at the corner of Beach and San Pablo in eastern Jacksonville, offers up a wide variety of pastries, cakes and deserts, as well as a selection of enormous sandwiches.  And of course, the best part of any culinary shoot is the opportunity to eat the subject!  It was a tasty and filling afternoon indeed!

Fresh & Friendly – Jacksonville’s Newest Grocer Opens its Doors

2014 09 Corporate - Fresh Market Grand Opening 03 - Jacksonville Regency Centers

A few weeks ago on the blog, we said goodbye to Fred Cotten’s BBQ, but this week, we get to bring you a happier business story!  On Wednesday, our friend’s at Regency Centers celebrated the grand opening on their anchor store in the new Brooklyn Station shopping center in Jacksonville’s Riverside neighborhood.  The Fresh Market opened it’s door to a big crowd of reporters, stakeholders and excited customers – offering up tasty free samples and some Fresh Market swag.   The grand opening ceremony itself was rather unique, with the cracking (and sharing) of a giant wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano in lieu of the more traditional ribbon cutting.  The store was beautifully organized, the shelves filled to the brim with fresh produce, groceries, and a bevy of health-conscious items ripe for the picking.

A Comcast Soiree and Scooby Too!

2014 09 Corporate - Comcast Spotlight Soiree 12 - Scooby

You know how people talk about coming full circle?  Well this shoot was that sort of experience for me.  As I was looking up the address for our shoot with Comcast Spotlight, it seemed awfully familiar.   And it was.  You see, I am no stranger to 10751 Deerwood Park Blvd.  For seven years, I spent my weekdays fooling around (and occasionally working) as the marketing guy for CEVA Logistics – my cubicle on the third floor.  I made many good friends and even more fond memories there, and when I departed to run Deremer Studios, the parting was bittersweet.  Today, half of the third floor, where CEVA’s executive offices and board room once were, now belongs to Comcast, and  walking into this eerily familiar yet strikingly different space was  a real throwback.

2014 09 Corporate - Comcast Spotlight Soiree 06 - Sweet by Holly
The event itself was great fun.  From a cupcake workshop hosted by Sweet! By Holly, a photo op with the one and only Scooby Do, some crazy indoor drone flying, and a photo session with the guys from Duck Dynasty (in cardboard form) – all came together for a memorable party.  Catering was provided by our friends at Up Catering – and I can personally vouch for the tastiness of their stuffed mushrooms!

More Than Just a Red Carpet – Top Performers Honored at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island

2014 09 Corporate - Conference FAM 15 - Ritz-Carlton Amelia Isla

We recently had the pleasure of working with another great group visiting the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island on a fanciful and noteworthy familiarization trip.   You’ve heard the phrase, “rolling out the red carpet” – well, as illustrated above, the folks at the Ritz-Carlton didn’t settle for just a red carpet – emblazoning this entire ballroom with scarlet tones to honor this intimate gathering of top performers.  As always, we captured our fair share of food pics along the way, and with this group, we offered a special service – quick-turn-around editing, design and printing of a special custom thank you print for the guests.  And on top of that, thanks to some creative Photoshoppery (that’s a word, right?), we even created a special happy birthday print by adding a banner and text to a group photo (their reaction below).   Thanks as always to the resort, and a special thanks to Dan Leslie from Appleseed Photography for partnering with us to provide top-level service at the event!

One Last Trip – Saying Farewell to Fred Cotten BBQ

2014 09 Culinary - Farewell Fred Cotten BBQ 01 Last Trip

It’s happened again.  Another famous, historic Jacksonville eatery has been forced to close its doors.  Fred Cotten Bar-B-Que first opened its do0rs in 1946 riding on the wake of the post-war boom and the city’s blossoming shipping industry.  For nearly seven decades, the restaurant, with its famous mustard sauce and fork-tender chicken, has been serving the people of Jacksonville with affordable, award-winning BBQ.  In 2000, after the death of founder Fred Cotten, Billy Cowart purchased the restaurant and faithfully honored the time-tested formula that had made this restaurant such a landmark.  In fact, in its history, the restaurant has been host to a variety of hungry celebrities and politicians on the campaign trail – including this guy you may have heard of – Bill Clinton.  Unfortunately, a combination of population and job shift, the increasing cost of doing business, and difficult financial times meant that Billy C’s Fred Cotten Bar-B-Que had to close its doors this Monday, September 15th, 2014.

2014 09 Culinary - Farewell Fred Cotten BBQ 13 Last Trip

And so, when I got word from an old friend (his chest pictured above) that Cotten’s was closing its doors for good, we planned one last trip – camera in hand.  As always, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was just as we had remembered it.  There is just something about BBQ, drenched in mustard sauce and simple white bread to sop up all the saucy, meaty goodness, that you just can’t beat.   And, since this was our last visit and all, I felt it best to share some photos with you!
