I’m taking some time this weekend to check out a food photography seminar taught by Penny De Los Santos on creativeLIVE.com. She’s an “award-winning internationally published photographer, a Senior Contributing photographer to Saveur magazine, and a regular contributing photographer for National Geographic magazine and Martha Stewart Living.”1 If you’re interested you can catch the remaining two days, Saturday and Sunday, online for free.
On a very cool food photography-related note, I had three recipes from this blog published this past week on tastespotting.com and foodgawker.com. These websites are an incredible visual cornucopia of photos from food bloggers across the internet. Each photo links back to the corresponding recipe from the related blog, and it’s a great way to find new blogs, try creative recipes, and also gain exposure as a food blogger.
Next week I’ll be starting a series of posts on that most ubiquitous of fast foods, the hamburger and fries. Of course I’ll be putting a healthier homemade spin on it, and will be posting on how to make your own condiments (mayo, mustard, ketchup), as well as a whole wheat hamburger bun. After that, I’ll be focusing on trying to make Michael Pollan’s credo of “eat food, not too much, mostly plants” a more consistent reality in my daily diet. I’ll probably be using Mark Bittman’s How To Cook Everything Vegetarian as a creative starting point, and any other sources of inspiration I happen to stumble upon.
Thanks again for joining me on this journey, and I wish you “buen provecho.”
