I admit it, I love food and I am inspired by films about food, books about food, and those who make good food, in particular: the movie Julie and Julia, the book A Moveable Feast, and Chef Ricky Moreno at Capo restaurant in Santa Monica.
In particular though, I love desserts (I actually used to be a pastry chef in NYC.) I don’t splurge that often, but when I do I’m drawn to fondant covered petit fours, French Macarons, and chocolate truffles. I’ll pretty much eat any dessert, but those are some of my favorites. In homage to my taste buds, I have included this diptych of two desserts I photographed including Napoleon’s French Macarons, and Starbucks Birthday Cake Pops.
