FYI



Restaurant and cafe reviews are in the process of being put together. I placed a few quick lists of places, products, people and markets on the right. They are all places, products and people I am very familiar with and have used for years now, but over the course of the next few months I will be posting on everything you see now, with a trip planned to assess the Canberra dining scene (yeah, I was surprised any kind of scene actually even exists in Canberra as well). If you have any favourites or suggestions for me, feel free to lead me wayward, you little devils. I have a new canon EOS 450 D (I had to copy that off the side of the box), I have no idea what that means, I don't even have any idea what it really does, but for the price I paid, I hope it does it very well. I also hope you're all enjoying the recipes and the pictures, I am having a ball putting them all together. Thanks for all the well wishing, pointers and great comments xx amanda.

hey amanda, my photographer friend has suggested http://www.canon.com.au/products/cameras_lenses_accessories/macro_lenses/ef100mmf28macrousm.aspx for your exploits. these are not zoomed at all and will give you that cookbook-esque angle, frame, and picture clarity -- glossiness can only be achieved with studio lamps (and not real food-only looks like it)... which is according to chefs, is how to make food look so good to eat.

hey dominic, just caught this comment now, what is that. a lense yeah?

yep its a lens. it has no zoom so you can snap the entire object into the frame without the obscured scale from prismed perspective... like yknow, those pictures from 'The Silver Spoon'. being the easiest to make, its also the cheapest lens
