Flash located camera left with lower part flagged to reduce upward light reflection, white foamboard reflector camera right, on-camera fill flash, also flagged lower portion to reduce amount of light bouncing up. Took some experimenting to get a reasonable balance. Reward is that the subjects became part of a nice dinner after the shoot.

Beautiful photo and processing. I would consider cropping more of the empty space on the top to even it out. I think the composition is naturally dynamic because of the angle and the top artichoke is what brings my eye into the photo. Great job!

This could have been the asparagus and artichoke challenge :-) Very sharp reflections.
