Have you ever arrived home from your holidays and discovered that over half your photos are of food? Glistening scallops, the rich reds of freshly sliced prosciutto, the beauty of a fruit and vegetable stand, and the textures of tiramisu just beg to be photographed, right? Of course, you stand up at the table in fine restaurants to get the best lighting and angle of the country’s national dish. And how could you not capture the steam rising from your host’s fabulous banana soup? Bet you can’t walk by a pastry shop or bakery without pulling out your camera, either. If you are guilty of this type of behavior, you are one of us, a foodie traveler.
Below are our favorite foodie photos. Enjoy!
While getting lost in Venice, we wandered into a little family restaurant right next to one of the smaller canals. We could not believe our luck! The meal was fabulous!
Vegetable stands may not be elegant, but we LOVE fresh ingredients. Who can resist imagining the soups and stews that can be prepared from these onions? We found these in a public market between Kilimanjaro and Arusha, Tanzania.
The display window at an Honfleur patisserie was so gorgeous, we had to whip out our cameras. The photo session made us almost miss getting to the ship
Lunch at the Agape Women’s Cooperative is a multi-course affair. Food prepared by Vickie, the cook, is well worth the super interesting and bumpy ride to Mulalal village, Tanzania.
Who could pass up such an elegant dessert? Yes, we ate it…after photographing it. Heavenly!
It is more difficult to photograph food in the dark, but this grilled meal in Stone Town, Zanzibar was delicious and pretty. We had to try it!
The window display in this Sicilian bakery tempted us to skip the museum we had planned to visit and instead sit at the outdoor table nibbling these treats.
Yep, we declare coffee a food! Coffee is grown on the slopes Mt. Meru. This photo was taken at the Kilimanjaro Native Cooperative Union, the largest buyer of Kilimanjaro smallholder coffee. Part of the Fair Trade movement, it buys from about 90 family coffee farms.
