Here’s a great article from one of our favorite food blogs, [No Recipes]. Marc Matsumoto is not only a photographer but an artist when it comes to preparing food. You can’t ask for food photography tips from a more knowledgeable source! LOVE the tip about balancing your point and shoot camera on a water glass in low light conditions. Check it out:
(disclaimer: it’s unabashedly a commercial for Sony products too, and we make no endorsement of them here…never used them. Delfina Restaurant on the other hand, we LOVE. You should go there;-)
Marc also happens to be a gifted writer. He cooks improvisationally, hence the name of the blog, and the narrative of his posts is as much about his day, his inspiration and his process as it is about the food. We love the way he weaves food, socializing and a moment in time together, reminding us why we love to cook and . . . celebrate food.
But darn, he shot this video mere blocks from MUS•e•YUM H.Q. So bummed to have missed out on meeting him in person. Marc, come back! We’ll take you to Starstream on the company expense account!
I’m reminded of one of the big reasons I love food so much. It’s the catalyst for bringing friends and family together, and the stage upon which so many lovely memories are made. I believe one of the highest ways we can show one other our appreciation, and affection, is by feeding them. And, breaking bread is always a great reason for a party!
Last night my partner and I joined two dear friends for dinner. As always, it was a fun excuse to try out a new recipe, and this time it was lemon posset, as found on Food52.com, by mrslarkin! This dessert was very easy to make and quite delicious, at once intensely lemony, silky and sweet. I’d been (quite generously) gifted with a heaping bag of Meyer Lemons the day before so, G-d forbid those go to waste;-)
