As many of my regular readers will know, I’ve been working on a personal project in between paying gigs for the last few weeks, and I’m now ready to go public with it. I have always wanted to learn how to cook. I mean to really learn how to cook. I have gone through phases over the years where I’ve watched a lot of FoodTV and messed around with cooking some stuff, but never really had the opportunity to make progress. Part of this was due to my tiny kitchens in New York and my soul sucking cubicle job which made easy-to-cook dinners and take out food seem like the best bet.
So, now that I have a great kitchen and am able to use my free time a lot better, I have decided that I am going to learn to cook. And since I have the skill level to make interesting and appetizing photographs of my food, what better way to mix my career with my cooking education. To that end, I have just launched a new blog called Shoot to Cook: A Photographer Learns to Cook.
The new blog is going to cover my food adventures, as well as some posts about food photography. It has already taken over a significant portion of my free time and it is a lot of hard work, but I’m having a blast doing it. Please check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks!
