Having grown up in Dallas and spent much of my adult life there, Black-Eyed Pea Restaurant runs deep in my veins, and stomach. So, when we got the call to shoot some menu items for the now Nashville based corporation I was very much looking forward to it and holding my breath for Chicken Fried Chicken and Squash Casserole for lunch.
On set I was recalling with a VP from their corporate office all the different Black-Eyed Pea’s I’ve eaten at. They are like little mile markers from various times in my life. In fact, my first advertising agency job in 1985 was in the same building as the then owner Prufrock. Maybe I should write my memoirs and let my various dinings at Black-Eyed Pea restaurants be the connecting thread. Or not.
Well, for now, let me at least share with you a few images from our food photography session. This was one of those occasions where we shot on location and our food stylist (the amazingly talented and pleasantly jovial Teresa Blackburn) worked with the corporate chef at there corporate restaurant.
Unbeknownst to me, Black-Eyed Pea has developed a fried pie of many flavors. They offer these various flavor temptations seasonally, and with ice cream … of which I’m always a fan. Well, enough of that, here’s a few photos for your salivary glands to consider.
So, there you have some fried pies and little something else to feast your eyes on. I’m sorry, too many puns today. I guess it’s time for me to take a break … a la mode, of course.
