Commencing ego stroke

This is my official “thanks to the academy” post for my recent success in a little online food photography competition called Does My Blog Look Good In This (DMBLGIT). I hosted DMBLGIT a couple of months ago to great success, and just last month Annie of BonAppgeek did an equally fantastic job of organising it, made even better by the fact that I won something :)

So I was fortunate enough amongst some excellent competition to come away with awards for Aesthetics and Originality for my little inadvertently grainy experiment called “Meanwhile In Italy…”, which is funny because I’ve never been to Italy, but I’m sure it looks something like this somewhere tucked away in a little cafe.

meanwhile in Italy...

So thanks again to Annie for organising and to the judges for thinking me worthy of something. However after noticing a trend from my competition two months ago, and also from last months, I am totally making pistachio covered truffles next time… :)

  1. Thanks guys :) much appreciated… now if it would just cool down enough over here so that I could spend more than a few minutes in front of the stove, I may just be able to cook something new… Til then, look forward to more coffee shots :)

  2. Congrats. Great photo. Your tuna taktai (probably spelled that wrong) from earlier in January looks as beautiful as that truffle. Who need pistachios anyway?

  3. Thanks Fer and Elle… Whilst I have nothing against truffles, or pistachios, I may never actually get around to making them… I guess I’m a savoury character at heart…
