I have been tagged again and for once I’m glad to participate! I was tagged previously for a 6 Things About Me post, which has been sitting in my drafts folder I suppose because I find myself an unworthy topic to post about… However, Celine at Black.Salt has challenged me to post up my top ten food pictures. Of course I’d like nothing better than to show off my favorites! The majority them are taken at restaurants, since I am much more of an eater than a cooker. Although I really do cook sometimes…

Anna of At Anna’s Kitchen Table – came up with the brilliant idea and it’s simple:

  1. Post 10 of your own favourite food shots
  2. Pass the opportunity on to others by tagging 5 fellow food bloggers, leaving a message on their comments page just so they’re aware of it.

Here are my ten favorite food pictures in no particular order:

1. Fresh Shucked Oysters at Tomales Bay Oyster
This was so good after we kayaked around Drakes Estero, it was most memorable
because it was our first ever oyster shucking feast! Oh and I made the
hogwash dipping sauce, that’s almost cooking…

2. Salt and Pepper Spare Ribs
from New Sung Hong Kong Restaurant, Chinatown, SF

3. Salted Caramel and Roasted Banana Ice Cream from Rite Ice Cream.
OMG just looking at this picture makes me drool…

4. The delectably crispy crust on Bibimbap at Korea House in Concord

5. The most decadent Edamame imaginable that is tossed in rich sesame oil then sprinkled with Pink Himalayan Sea Salt, white and black sesame seeds from Butterfly Restaurant

6. Shaking Beef Cobb Salad from the same meal above

7. Cambodian Noodles
New Saigon Restaurant, Chinatown, SF.

8. Dragonbeard Candy from Koi Palace Dim Sum in Daly City

9. I love bread, cheese and olives. Not exactly cooking but I put it together.

10. And lastly, here’s one I actually cooked, Cochinita Pibil, as you can see from the sloppy spatters on the plate… what restaurant would send that out without wiping it off? Ah well, that’s why I rarely photograph my cooking, I’m so impatient to eat!

I enjoyed going through previous posts looking through all my old pictures, hope you had fun too.

To my tag-ees, the best thing is that this is not a chain letter and I promise that you will not suffer from any ill effects if you do not choose to participate in the tag part! At least I hope that some of the following five other bloggers will show us their top ten food photos:

  1. Boolicious at Masak-Masak
  2. Chef Ben at Cooking with the Single Guy
  3. Passionate Eater
  4. Rowena at Rubber Slippers in Italy
  5. Chubbypanda, the Epicurious Wanderer

Come on guys, show us your stuff!

Wow, those pics look “tres” gorgeous Foodhoe! My wagging tongue is always floored by your fabulous food pictures. I hope to respond soon, but I’ve been out of commission lately (I had surgery recently), so I haven’t been active in the blogging world. I am actually going to be back in SF for a few days during Memorial Day wknd. Will you be in town then? I hope you are doing well my Foodhoe friend! 🙂

Now this is a tag worth doing (and drooling over! the cochinita pibil yeah! yeah!) – I’m on it!! Ten food pics huh? I’ll wait til after I put up my calf brains….heh heh.

Love the photos! I’ve been meaning to check out Koi Palace but haven’t managed to make it up yet.

I have been wandering out of Foodhoe territory lately, checking out other food blogs, and I have to say your food photos are the best around. I was looking at some wretched looking photo of, I believe, a tamale earlier today and it looked alarmingly like a stick that my dog ate, digested and then puked up eight hours later. Keep the great pix coming — they definitely wet the appetite.

PE, no I didn’t hear about it. I trust it went well and you are recovering ok! No worries, hope your visit back home was fantastic!
Rowena, you are too funny, I’ll be looking for those brains…
Liz, thank you and don’t miss it, it rocks!
TK, thanks you! Tamales are hard to photograph without props and good lighting eh? It’s my rock steady hand and grim determination to take pix before people dig in…

as ever ~ food photography is grande! I could imagine sinking my teeth into the ribs, bibimbap and the egg shot drooling at me atop the cambodian noodles are way too much…..

Lighting is so tough esp. @ restaurants – beautiful work!

Wow! Those ribs! That egg! That rice crust! What gorgeous shots – now I’m hungry again!

Hi Foodhoe, I finally got around to doing this meme. It was fun. BTW, my favorite of your shots is No. 7 of the clear noodle in that blue bowl. You could blow it up and hang it in a museum!
