Behind the lens with Emily Gough from Good Grace Food

In this series I’ll be chatting with some of my favourite chefs, bloggers, business owners, foodies to talk all things, photography, entrepreneurship, just about anything and well food of course!

Today we are chatting to Emily Gough behind the drool worthy account @goodgracefood

Australian born, Emily is an experienced Content Creator, photographer and recipe developer. Creating mouth watering indulgent recipes created from healthy ingredients. Think Apple crumble porridge, Pancake smoothie bowl, hazelnut espresso porridge, and countless other incredible creations. One of those Instagram accounts you one day stumble across and can’t get enough of.

How often do you get called by the name Grace on Instagram? And could you share the story behind your blog’s name?

I get it more than Emily haha! I chose the name Good Grace Food, as I wanted to post recipes that tasted good, while also being good for you. Grace is my middle name and I always liked the idea of using it, plus I thought it sounded catchy.

What would be your dream destination regarding food?

Anywhere in Scandinavia! I love how healthy they eat and how fresh their ingredients are.

What is your favourite Australian food? and British?

Avocado toast (yes that was invented in Aus!) and my fav British food would be pumpkin scones.

If money didn’t matter how would you spend your days?

Creating dishes is my favourite thing to do! If money wasn’t an object, I would travel all over and create dishes with all kinds of exotic ingredients.

What was the last thing you ate today?

Berry and almond butter smoothie bowl

Your breakfast bowls, are absolutely incredible.  What would be your top tip when it comes to creating that wholesome breakfast?

Thank you so much! I love to include ingredients that have added health benefits, such as different seeds and superfoods, so that would be my top tip.

Your Food Photography is simply gorgeous, do you have a creative background?

You’re too kind! Yes I studied photography and worked as a photographer for many years in fashion. So I decided to combine my two passions together – photography and food!

What food could you never live without in your cupboards?And fridge?

Frozen Bananas, nut butter and oats!

What is your best piece of advice for creating a thick smoothie bowl?

Make sure you have enough ingredients in your blender, pre-cut the frozen bananas and have intervals while blending to move the ingredients in the blender.

If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive who would that be? 

I would love to have dinner with Oprah! I admire her entrepreneurship, how she sees the world and her podcast ‘Super Soul Sundays’ is a regular listen for me.

Who inspires you?

My husband Daniel encourages and inspires me daily, as mushy as that sounds
