LET’S TALK ABOUT EATING BUGS

I tend to go through sample trays like an open-mouthed freight train.

Guys, isn’t the picture that accompanies this post totally fantastic? I’m proud to say that it comes from our super talented Impatient Foodie photographer and food stylist team, Davide Luciano and Claudia Ficca.

The idea behind the series is to capture the disappointment and sense of abandonment that accompanies a gathering that is suddenly and unexpectedly ended, whether by a swarm of angry bees, a mob hit, a thunderstorm, or a food fight. I look at these photos all the time and always see something new.  If you haven’t already checked out Davide’s and Claudia’s work, please do! They are passionate about what they do and have a wonderful sense of humor and it shows. I wouldn’t be able to do Impatient Foodie without them! [/peekaboo_content] [peekaboo]Content [/peekaboo]
