Sometimes I wonder that, if it could, would food write about itself? Would it be vain, talking about how delicious and in demand it is? Or would it be introspective, reflecting on its short lifespan in the space between plates and mouths? Perhaps we’d advise food to find a creative outlet, maybe talk to a professional about its thoughts?
Actually wait, that’s exactly what this is like. Therapy.
“Hi, my name is Riz. And I like to take photos of food. And I like to cook food. And I like to eat food. And I like to eat food.” (I figured that last part deserved repeating.)
Well… there was that thing where I had loads of friends and family asking me to send them my recipes or tell them about all the restaurants I visit, but let’s be honest. This blog is a way for me to indulge and share my love of food – cooking it, and eating it!
My favourite meals of the day are dessert and breakfast (so expect to see a lot of desserts and baked goods recipes). HOWEVER! Not all food was created equal. There are a few foods that I do my best to avoid (so don’t expect to see much of them!):
- Apples are poisonous. (No, seriously… I’m allergic to apples. I’m like Snow White, except I’m not as white as snow. And I’m a guy. And well basically nothing like her, except for the apple part.)
- Eggplants are my mortal enemy.
- Coriander and I usually aren’t great friends. It doesn’t taste like soap, I just can’t stand the smell (though I tend to fare better when it’s used in a curry).
I love photos. And a huge part of food blogging is the photography. It’s one thing for me to tell you how delicious something is, it’s another thing entirely for you to be able to see it (we’re still waiting on Smell-O-Vision. Come on, Science!)! My cameras of choice are the Sony Alpha a-55V and Nikon D5100. The photos on this blog will be almost entirely composed of handheld shots taken on my Sony Alpha a-55. Though any photos taken at restaurants will tend to be my iPhone5 camera (can you tell?).
