As I have been processing hundredes of food-​re­lat­ed photos I took in 2015, it has become ap­par­ent that there are two major categories these im­ages group into. One is pictures of the process and results of cooking food at home. The other is shots of the food I eat at some of multiple-​thou­sands of breweries, pubs and restaurants in the Portland area, or elsewhere in Oregon.

In light of this, I have had to go back and re­or­gan­ize my food photos for 2015. For my 2016 food pictures, I am starting off by separating the out-to-eat photos from the cook-at-home ones. Because I have identified myself as a gourmet chef wannabe not ready for prime time, this al­bum is dedicated to my sometimes-​disasterous attempts at culinary creativity. I make no claim of being a cooking expert, but I do have fun trying new recipes and techniques in the kitchen, as well as photographing the process and results.

The out-to-eat pictures for 2016 can be found in the McMenamins Pub Crawl 2016 and Oregon Pub Crawl 2016 albums. All food and cooking related images for 2016 have been collected into the Food & Cooking 2016. All such photos from all years are gathered together in the Oregon Pub Crawl (All Years) and Food & Cooking (All Years) albums.
