Here are a series of self-proclaimed food photography that were taken at my birthday dinner/get-together 3 months ago. Some of these were inspired by Jamie Oliver's show "30 minute meals" that i watched over and over again (both season 1 and 2) straight after my exams were finished.
If you've ever seen me cook then you would know that to me, the appearance of a dish is vital. So i'll try to make my food as pretty as possible. Sometimes, I even plan out a recipe based on what they look like in my head. You see, fashion and cooking has some similarities. Firstly, food also needs accessories to glam them up, like the strawberries on the pavlova or flower-shaped pastry on the banana/caramel pastry burger or those oranges/frozen berries/mint leaves in the punch. Secondly, different textures makes an outfit as well as a dish interesting. velvet/silky/leahter/lace and crunchy/soft. Thirdly, colours! I like to colour-block when it comes to food. The more they clash, the better it looks.
Anyway, i've rambled on too much. Good news is... it's Thursday! for those of you who have a day off tomorrow, then lucky you. For those of you (like me), who still have to study/work/dowhatever tomorrow, hang in there! The weekend is near :D
