Food Art

Have I ever mentioned that I have a big obsession with food photography? I think because I love to cook, I love to eat and I love food in general. I hope you find these food photographs to be really delicious!

I eat merely to put food out of my mind.

Note: Starting tomorrow morning I'm going to be on a blog break for a few days. I won't be responding to comments or visiting blogs (my apologies), but I'm looking forward to catch up with you next week. xx

I love Your Sunday Best  by the wonderful Nancy.

I'm reading this with 30mins until lunchtime and it's making my tummy rummble!

There are so many things I want to eat in this post - particularly the puddings and the burgers and is that avocado - that's one of my favourite food ever.

Have a great few days off.

That is some beautiful food. I'd be ashamed to mess it up, to eat it, but I definitely wouldn't be able to resist anything with avocado.

The presentation of food is such an important part of contributing to how we perceive how it will taste.

Love the spaghetti quote, I always make more mess than the kids. I gotta go as your mouth watering pics are making me hungry!!

I love the styling of these food photographs. One of my weaknesses - food esp desserts.

I'm into food photography also. Take care wherever you'll go and enjoy. :)

HAPPY WEEKEND.
