Food, family, feast

Food is so creative. Such a celebration of life.
Here are some photos that I’ve taken of food over the last couple of years. Just looking at them brings back memories of barbeques with friends, Greek Easter feasts, school lunch treats and celebrations a-plenty. Although I feel like I’m always taking pictures of food, I feel like so many “food memories” were eaten and never remembered here!

Ah, if I could just get a dollar for every time I’m thought of taking the photo…only too late as I had just eaten the “prop”.
Food makes me think of family, friends, laughter, memories, flavour, life-giving colour, culture, burnt basics and successful one-offs, champagne and wine, bread and cheese, fruit and gardens, herbs and spices….
What does FOOD mean to you?
