I just returned from a short trip to New York City where I attended a two-hour food blogging class in the Bowery Culinary Center at Whole Foods Market. Matt Armendariz, the teacher and author of the amazing blog mattbites, guided the class through the "ins and outs of food blogging," imparting along the way some invaluable insights and tricks regarding food photography. The photos on his blog — visit a recent post entitled "Sunday and The Perfect Lunch" — and on his new site mattphotographs are stunning. Inspired by the class and matt's photography site, I've put together a mini gallery of food photos, many of which have appeared in my blog. To view the gallery click on the photography link on my alexandracooks web site. For the recipe for these chicken tinga tacos click on the photo of these tacos in the gallery — eventually there will be links to recipes from all of the photos.
