James Strawbridge is the driving force behind Strawbridge Kitchen. Living on the South Cornish coast with his wife Holly and their three young children, he works for a wide range of food and drink brands from his garden photography studio and development kitchen.
When not developing new recipes or directing photo shoots, James can be found foraging for wild food with his family, out at sea gig-rowing for his local club or painting the Cornish countryside.
James collaborates with a range of clients primarily in the South West and always focusing on quality and provenance. Currently these include: Cornish Sea Salt, W Harvey & Sons, Real Olive Co, Beacon Foods, ProQ BBQ, Samworth Brothers, Davidstow Cheddar, Truffle Hunter, Ocean Fish and Home Pizza Ovens to name a few. Always promoting the products with dynamic food photography, innovative recipes and award-winning New Product Development.
Julian Harvey, director of W. Harvey & Sons, said:
“We are thrilled to have James on board as we have been fans of his recipe creations and stunning pictures for quite a while. His recent recipe creation for Cornish King Crab or Spider Crab as it has previously been known has been fantastic and we can’t wait to see what he comes up with next for W. Harvey & Sons.”
As well as the creative side of his work, James spends a great deal of time behind the scenes working on Business Development, Marketing & PR strategy and lead generation for his clients. He has a close relationship with chefs in foodservice, food manufacturing and retailer innovation teams.
