My mom was an amateur chef with an adventurous palate, and as I was growing up, I frequently found myself helping her in the kitchen. Even today, I cook as much as my wife does. The bottom line is that I love preparing delicious food and enjoying it with family and friends. And because I'm also a photographer, I suppose photographing food is a natural outcome. These images make my mouth water, and I hope they do yours as well. Bon appetit!
