Thank goodness for those who take pictures of food. Especially vegan food. “That’s vegan?” I’ve been asked while selecting pictures of dishes from my upcoming cookbook, “CULTURE CLASH: globally-inspired recipes by EARTHCANDY GOURMET VEGAN CUISINE”©. “Yes, silly! What else would it be?” is my reply.
I get it though; the vibrant colors, the appetizing presentation, the savory, sweet, spicy, and deliciousness of the dishes seem to transmit through the photographs. A good food picture makes any dish seem ‘too good to be veganly true’.
I, personally, am not necessarily a die-hard food voyeur, but I do enjoy pictures and pictures-and pictures- of some good-looking food. There’s a fine science to capturing every gooey drizzle of chocolate, juicy-laden burgers, and gobs of melted, oozing cheese, and….aND…AND….whoops! Wooh, I was getting a little excited there! *sigh*I digress 🙂
Alas, gone are the days where I would spend 8 hours of my day staring at Food Network, mentally ‘veganizing’ the dishes that weren’t (hey; SUE ME!). I realized I had a problem and I worked on it. Now I only do it for 7 hours! Ha!
Let these photos get your (salivary gland) juices flowing…
