It was a busy long week-end. Saturday I spent the day downtown Ottawa with my son Max. We took a creative photography class with Garry Black. He's a National Geographic photographer. We learned so much from him. We did the course over a period of three weeks, both in class and in the field. Since it was Tulip's Fest in Ottawa we had the chance to take very nice pictures. This course has nothing to do with food photography. It's two completely different techniques. We wanted to do a creative class because we love to travel and we are planning to go to Italy at the end of the summer.
If you would come to my house you would see, right away, that I love cookbooks and magazines. I collect them like other people collect all sort of things. One of my fav magazine of all time is Ricardo. I think it's the highest quality magazine in Canada. The pictures are gorgeous and we always find recipes, that we love, in each issues. When I meet with my family in Quebec we plan our meals together and will usually end up with Ricardo's recipes. I like him so much that when I'm cooking you will often find me watching one of his show on my iPad.
