Playing with Your Food – Fun in the Kitchen

I don’t know about you, but I have this fascination for abstractions.  The other night when I was making a small dinner, I was cutting up some veggies for a mashed potato recipe, when I looked down and saw this really cool starburst within my parsnip.  Not one to miss an opportunity to photograph things I ran upstairs and grabbed my camera – then got to work (not cooking) but playing with my food.

I pulled out the mandolin and made a few slices of different veggies and put them to the side, then prepped my camera.  Now, the kitchen was pretty dismal as far as lighting was concerned so I looked around and realized that the bay window would be a perfect backdrop for my veggies PLUS it would give them a nice backlight.  Off I went to the window – but then realized I didn’t have a clue how to get them to stick.  Then it hit me.

Lick them and mush them on the window.

Here are some of the images:

Pretty neat huh?

Anyway, I decided since I had the camera out and did need to eat at some point I’d go ahead and shoot the rest of the food:

That was one of the best recipes I have ever made – such a keeper!
