This past Saturday I decided to sign up for a Phototasting class to unleash my inner photographer. It was held at Cube Marketplace which is a wine and cheese bar, restaurant and uh... marketplace. It was the smartest decision I made all week. (Other than sideswiping a trash can on Monday which cleanly sliced off my passenger side mirror.) The class was taught by food bloggers from Rants and Craves and The Kitchy Kitchen.
This was the deal. We listened to and watched an hour tutorial slide show while sipping wine. We waited for tasty morsels to be brought out so we could eat... ugh um... I mean photograph them. We took pictures of the delicious food, and then... ate the display . A perfect piglet class. It's nice when you can eat the art. Besides learning a few new tricks on my camera, I also met some really cool bloggers. Am I proud of myself? Hell yes! Are my newfound sweet photographic skills too classy for Spoondles? This has yet to be determined.
The next day I decided to go out for another fatty lunch at il Pistaio and take some pictures on my own...
Baby artichoke and arugula salad
Eggplant with smoked mozzarella on pappardelle
Man, does Spoondles look classy or what?!
