Degustation at Ottoman

on Food  

This has definitely been a week of eating. More creative things to come soon, promise!

As yesterday was The Boy’s actual birthday, we decided to do another special dinner and go all out with a degustation at Ottoman Cuisine. It was the first degustation we had ever tried, and definitely weren’t disappointed. The restaurant is beautiful, the service fantastic – each dish was explained to us as it was set down, including the order in which the chef recommended eating the components.

I find that once food is above a certain level I don’t have the palate, experience or vocabulary to describe it – and this was definitely well above that level. So to finish, here are a few of my inexpertly taken photos of the delicious food. I’d definitely recommend this place!

  1. your food photography is amazing!!! They look like they were taken for a food mag! what lense did you use and whats was ur DOF, AP and etc. Amazing stuff, am looking forward to seeing more

  2. Ahahah they’re not that good! And they way the plated the courses it looked brilliant on the plate but was hard to take photos of =_=

    But if it helps: used my 50mm 1.8 lens at 1/30s, f 2.0, ISO 800. The photos ended up a tad out of focus, but it’s hard to tell at this size heheh. If I could have gotten away with it in the lighting I would have gone with a faster shutter speed and higher aperture. I think. Still learning!
