Best of 2011 - Food

Hello, all!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, is ready to finish out Hanukah, and has had a great start to Kwanzaa!

I can't believe that it's December 27. Where did this month go, and, more importantly, where did this YEAR go?

What I do love about the end of the year are lists of what people think are the best of anything. Last year, I made a list of my favorite food and travel shots of 2010. You can take a look at them here (or just click the Top Ten label on the right).

These pics are a mix of the most intriguing or memorable things I ate in 2011 as well as some of my better food photography (which isn't saying much. LOL!). Here they are in no particular order with links in case you missed a post or two....

Wild Rock Lobster (River Cafe - Brooklyn, NY)
Roasted lobster tail, mango, fennel, lemon, olive oil

Chicken & Waffle Cupcake (Robicelli's - Brooklyn, NY)
A piece of chicken on top of a waffle. Love it!

Buffalo Wings (Anchor Bar - Buffalo, NY)
Buffalo wings in Buffalo! :)

Taylor Bay Scallop Ceviche (River Cafe - Brooklyn, NY)
On the half shell with sea beans, tomato and coriander

Manti (Pasazade - Istanbul, Turkey)
lamb-filled pasta topped with tangy yogurt sauce, tomato sauce and spices

Deviled Eggs (Prune - New York, NY)
A good one from my IPhone. People love this on Foodspotting. Have you tried out the site?

Cheeseburger Animal Style with sauteed onions and extra sauce (In 'N Out Burger - Culver City, California)
My first In 'N Out burger!

Irmik Helva (Pasazade - Istanbul, Turkey)
A traditional Turkish dessert

Ducuna with Ling Fish & Chop Up (Miss Brenda's Food Stall - English Harbour, Antigua)

Mistanya Kuzu Firin (Imbat - Istanbul, Turkey)

Here's to more great eating in 2012!

Stay tuned for my Best of 2011 travel photos.
