Weekly Photo Challenge: Lunchtime

Nicoletta and I have been very busy in the past weeks to work on our final weeks of our MBAs. I participated also at a Photography Weekend with Rocky Mountain School of Photography  in Portland (ME) and Nicoletta worked recently as guest chef to prepare an authentic Italian-Piedmontes dinner, just to cite a few of our recent exciting activities. We will dedicate a couple of posts to these events soon.

It is phoneography month and this week’s Photo Challenge is just perfect. For foodies like me and Nicoletta it’s the great opportunity to use our iPhone food pictures in this blog post.

I have started last November a vegan challenge: I had to lose some weight and wanted to lower my cholesterol, so I tried with a plant-based diet to see if it had a positive effect on me (and yes I lost weight and improved my cholesterol!). I had great advice and ideas for new recipes from my friends in my neighborhood, from cookbooks and blogs with delicious plant-based recipes, from starters to desserts. One of my favorite books so far is “The Crazy Sexy Kitchen” book by Kriss Carr with Chef Chad Sarno.  I am  using it almost every day, for smoothies, chai lattes, salads, chili, cashew cream cheese, cakes, etc.

Here are some of the CSKitchen pics I took with my iPhone 5 recently (click on the image to view them in a larger format), I would like to share with you.

Buon Appetito!

These are just a few of the recipes I have photographed with my iPhone, and I have posted them with a minimal editing.

On a side note: A few weeks ago, I also had the opportunity to meet Chef Chad Sarno in person at his book signing and cooking demo at Wholefoods in Portland, ME, and got my book and Nicoletta’s book signed. If you ever have the chance to attend one of those events, I highly recommend it!

    • Thank you, Jen. These are just iPhone snapshots, but Nicoletta and I are still working on our food photography skills, but we are getting there! I had a great photo weekend in Portland with a school from Montana this weekend, and submitted one of my food photos (not posted on the blog yet) for the critique session. I was very happy because the overall evaluation regarding exposure and composition were good! Yeah!

    • Thank you! The dishes besides looking good, tasted good. I am traveling now, so I won’t have time to give you more details, nor do I have the authors’ authorization to publish their recipes from the book. You can download it also as an e-book, it is really a great book, all their recipes were great so far. You can Google the nada egg salad and there is a video with Kriss Carr showing how to make it. Once I back i will make the vegan chili post, I have made up my own version and once you have the basic spices on hand, like cumin, Mexican chili peppe, jalapeños, onion and black beans, you can experiment by adding other veggies like zucchini, red bell pepper, barley, chickpeas, kale… Got to go, I am boarding! Bye!!
