    CHEAT! CHEAT! I may be a photographer but I am also a human being, one who needs to fuel up with food. You can’t make me look at all those photos without giving me the names of the dishes at least (I want the recipes but I guess that would be asking too much?) so at least I can go to a restaurant and ask for the dish!!! Hungry? No, those photos made me all animal, ready to fight my way to those tables. Distance yourself from your art? Not a chance here. Yum. Yum!
