Hi, I’m Miriam..

.. and in my blog space I’m sharing mostly my cooking experience – and that in pictures and in words.
Although, when here and there it comes to some special moments in life, I will share that just as well.

 

 

As all photographers, I’m addicted to the effects of  light, and adding to this, in my food photography, I wholeheartedly enjoy styling and setting my scenes. I love the process.

To me, this work means not only the technical circumstances, but also pristine observations, reflections, thinking back in time or ahead – in my creative decisions, and that’s what I’ trying to capture here, on my blog, as well.

As to the recipes and my kind of loving food as it is, I would like to use an explanation, which I came to in a book of an author – teacher, who inspires me a lot.

Dianne Jacob (2010), in her Will Write For Food: the complete guide to writing cookbooks, blogs, reviews, memoir,and more;  explains subject matter on many good examples of other food writers, cooks, or bloggers, and here’s one,  that would reveal this aspect of my blog:

“… A longing for the pleasures of the table reflects a concern for balance and harmony and an integration of the physical and spiritual nature of our existence. In this way, cookbooks are a meditation. Preparing a dish or a meal is not merely an effort to satisfy physical hunger, but often a quest for the good life. (Janet Theophano, Eat My Words: Reading Women’s Lives Through the Cookbooks They Wrote)” (p. 208)
