Tuesday Tasting – Photo Inspiration

I love watching culinary competitions. They are both exciting and nerve-wrecking for me at the same time. Especially the sugar and chocolate ones where the competitors/chefs have to move their pieces. Maybe one day I’ll compete in one.

Meanwhile, here is a gorgeous piece from a photo of a dish at the IKA Culinary Olympics in 2009.
