Man, I’d love to invest in a new camera (a Nikon D80 to be exact) to take beautiful pictures like these two blogs below that I absolutely love, love, love. I’m from a pretty artsy fartsy family – my dad was a photographer and my mom likes to draw (and I am a graphic designer) – so for me, presentation is very important. Again, I truly believe that most people eat with their eyes so a beautiful presentation of food is half the battle. That’s why I am beyond infatuated with Pure Food & Wine in NYC even though I have never been there. I have the two cookbooks from the restaurant and am planning to knock out a recipe or two each week because it combines my two loves: raw food + spending dedicated time in the kitchen preparing beautiful food!
