Food photography from the past

A little delicious blast from the past for you

Gourmet 5 year old-2

PB & J – Vanilla Infused Torchon of Duck Foie Gras topped with Grand Marnier Marmalade on Butter Toasted Sourdough in May of 2009.

Taken with Canon Rebel XTi, and 90mm. Lighting from window (on the left, you can see the cool coloring) and overhead tungsten lights.

This is beloved’s take on a gourmet PB&J for an event, and it tastes even better than it looks (if you like foie gras that is, if you don’t like it, you will hate it no matter what).

Just thought I’d share.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Not only am I addicted to foie gras served any way I can get it, but after returning from travels in France I invariably have to enter a 12-step program at my facility of choice — DuckHab. So it was with great relish that I feasted my eyes on the delectable, photogasmic dish. (Topped with Grand Marnier Marmalade and on butter-toasted sourdough, you say? Mercy.) The image was so mouth-watering — truly — I had to call my foie gras recovery sponsor. Food photography, as you well know, is always more difficult than it looks, and to capture the essense of a dish — so much so that the viewer can literally *taste* it with his eyes — is no small feat. The center-focus and surrounding bokeh is wonderful and the decision to use natural window light imbues the dish with a rustic soulfulness (the smidgeon of light in the upper right-hand corner is also a nice touch) and creates an image worthy of one of the better gourmet food magazines.
