Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art


The theme for this week centers on defining my understanding, interpretation, and overall ideal of a “Work of Art”.    In the words of Michelle W.,


Art is everywhere, though: in nature, in architecture, in literature, and more. It’s anywhere we see beauty and meaning.  For me, it’s in food. The creativity, forethought, and care that went into this beautifully cooked and plated lamb dish takes it from ‘dinner’ [sic] to ‘art’ [sic]”


Michelle W., I concur.

I am guilty of devouring my food more often than not through the lenses of my camera or smartphone well before fork meets plate.    A true culinary artist can have a lasting effect upon my synapses. Their culinary strokes across the plate captivate my inner spirit.  Just remembering the tasty delights within this post, I arise with fork and knife in hand.

Yes, food is a secret pleasure of mine.  The canvas of edible ecstasy below lives on far beyond the last bite.  Join me in viewing heaven on a plate from my time in Dublin, Ireland.

DSC03990With a lascivious glint across my brow, I satisfied my hunger with this truly salacious work of art.  A slice of roasted pork butt, served alongside slow-stewed plums and cherries, mashed potatoes, and finished with a single apple slice.  This was truly a heavenly experience.


EYHCS, clicks the submit button, wipes mouth, hears the small rumbling from the bottom of her stomach, and leaves the keyboard in search of the Philly cheese steak calling her name.

I bid you adieu and Bon Appétit!
