Does my blog look good in this? I guess so!

Andy from Spittoon Extra hosted this month’s “Does my blog look good in this?” food photography event. If you want to see some gorgeous shots, check out the winners:

1st place - Mahanandi
2nd place - Fred Kitchen
3rd place - Nika’s Culinaria

I particularly love Fred’s photo of winter fruit compote. What was surprising is that my photo of caviar got a joint Aesthetics award. Wow – I am blushing as I type, and am honored to be in such great company of Belly Timber and Lucullian Delights.

By the way, I promised you guys the menus from my Russian and Provencal classes.
