When Our Powers Combine, We Are....

... I got nothing.

I am trying to think of a way to explain what happens when the wonderful worlds of food and photo combine, or more specifically Food Lovers and Photographers.

When I researched local food blogs for my site I bumped into a few food/photo blogs where the two media are married in a wonderful way. It seems photographers have an affinity for delicious food. Maybe its all of the color and visual stimulation.
Here are some of the blogs I found that intentionally concentrate on photo, or maybe just have a good photographer to back them up:

Leite's Culinaria
Stacey Adams-Zeir
Kitchenography (Love this if only for the name!)
La Tartine Gourmande
I Shot The Chef
Culinary Concoctions by Peabody
Whisk
FoodGawker

I could keep going but, you get the point.

Anyway, tomorrow night myself and four others are getting together to make dinner... the other diners will be:

-Chris, my boyfriend (a food and photo and music lover)
-Marc, Chris' coworker/ friend/ photographer/ music lover
-Megan, Marc's girlfriend/ food lover
-Myself (we know me, and if you don't then go read the About section!)

Marc and I are actually paid to be photographers, and we love food... a lot. Chris and Megan, as far as I know like to cook a little, like to eat a lot, and like to look at photography anytime.

Chris always comes home and tells me about a new delicious thing Marc made or ate and so finally after months of saying it we are actually going to all get together and make a meal.

The theme is Spanish Tapas. All of the recipes are coming from my newest cookbook by Jose Andres.

I am sure there will be plenty of experimental photography, and maybe even a recipe or two with my variations.
Visit again soon for the official report!
