Food Porn


You know how much I love talking about, thinking about, and playing with food. Now, I have another venue for this passion.

The website (centralcoastgrown.org) where I wrote farm and ranch profiles last year is now posting my articles on different kinds of produce. The first one was on persimmons, now long gone from my orchard.

I've been busy with pieces on napa cabbage and brussels sprouts but I might have missed that season already. The fields that were packed with giant growing brussels sprouts have been cleared and are getting ready to be planted with something else.
This is the way Brussels sprouts grow.

Napa is an elegant lady...
 In between the many recent guests we've had, I experimented with different recipes, as well as food photography. I can see that I'm better at taking photos of the actual produce. Or maybe it's a problem of food styling rather than photo techniques. And I am learning that some recipes sound so good but either don't come out tasting as good as they sound, or they turn out less photogenic than desired.
I need food styling lessons.

Some bloggers are so good at food porn.
