Meat and cheese
August 5, 2010 by Chris Dunn
The worst part of photographing food for the newspaper is that it’s usually food I can’t afford to buy or make.
For example — a $1,000 picnic basket at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park. A picnic basket that includes two Maine lobsters, caviar, expensive steaks, cheeses, stuffed peppers and truffles.

A New York sirloin Kobe-style Wagyu steak, served with grilled pineapple, as well as (not pictured) asparagus spears, a Maine lobster, a pan-fried rice cake and a baguette -- all part of the $1,000 platinum picnic basket, which is available at all Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and ASO Presents concerts at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park in Alpharetta.
Also — ricotta cheese. And not the kind that you buy in a tub from the grocery store.

As Jeff and my family can confirm, I’m not a big fan of cheese unless it’s melted. But this — this was just tempting.

Food photography. I love it, and I hate it. But mostly I love it.
