From my experience I know that the more time that is properly spent on discussing, synchronizing and thinking through the style and workflow, the faster the shooting itself is. There was a bit of a rush here, because due to a hitch in the repair, the chef prepared the menu without a margin of time, and the photos were needed urgently (a common story). But the conditions for shooting there are excellent, so the work went quickly. I usually spend less than 10 minutes on one menu item if I need enough diverse photos for social networks with changing locations, and the light is natural. With a very simple query, it's even faster, 5 minutes/dish.
