If we examine the elements which create exceptional dishes it's the combination of aesthetics, flavors and textures. The culinary arts surpasses simply eating and achieves something far grander in its experience. An engagement of the senses.
There's something meaningful about cooking or baking for others. The act of gathering around a table to converse, share and enjoy. Food and drink brings people together, whether it's at a 5 star restaurant, taco truck or a home cooked meal. It's intended to be savored.
I've had the opportunity to capture the creative artistry of food photography in my business. It's the best especially when you get to sample the dishes after. My last photo even made it in a photo contest. Maybe one day I'll collaborate on a cookbook. A girl can dream!
