Around mid-2015, for some mysterious reason, I had aspirations to become a wannabe gourmet chef and beer connoisseur.
All of a sudden I had an interest in trying new foods and beers, both at restaurants and at home. And for the good food I discovered eating out, I eagerly wanted to figure out how to make the same dishes at home.
Because my other passions are photography and blogging, it was natural that I would document my epicurean
adventures with pictures and articles. My original Food & Cooking 2015
album was reasonably-sized for a little while, but the quantity of photos in that album, taken both in restaurants and in my kitchen, quickly mushroomed to a difficult-to-manage number.
I ended up splitting that album into a number of smaller albums.
I was also brainstorming for creative ways to organize my growing collection of food and cooking photos. Soon it became apparent that my restaurant photos and my home-cooking photos needed to be grouped separately. I realize that it can be difficult to tell the difference between many of these albums, so here’s the lowdown:
The Food & Cooking series of conglomerate albums contain photos from both my home-kitchen and from restaurants:
Photos taken in restaurants, pubs and bars have their own series of conglomerate albums, organized into McMenamins and non-McMenamins (Oregon) collections:
Last but certainly not least, my home-cooking pictures have their own series of conglomerate albums, which make up the content of this Gourmet Chef Wannabe (All Years) ‘super-album’:
More photos will be added to this album in the future as I experiment more in the kitchen and the Gourmet Chef Wannabe series continues. In addition, don’t miss all of my Gourmet Chef Wannabe articles.
