50 Extremely Delicious Examples of Food Photography

I know, I know. I just recently ranted and raved about pointless list posts, but I’m hoping that this post isn’t pointless after all — and despite an intense Google search session I couldn’t find any other post that covered this topic before.

I admit, this post won’t make you a better designer nor is it intended to inspire you (even though it eventually will, if not to design than at very least to cook and eat); the sole purpose of this post is to make you drip saliva all over your precious keyboards. You don’t really have a choice regarding this either, because the following 50 photographs, whether rustic and simple or light and elegant are just so exquisite and mouth-watering.

All images are linked to either the site of the respective photographer, the site I found them on or, if your lucky, to the recipe.

Finally, now that we’re talking about food already, I want to bring one more, quite important matter to your attention. Some of you may already have heard about or seen it: The British TV-Cook Jamie Oliver currently tries to revolutionize the way the people of the United States (and elsewhere as well) see food and replace fast food with home-cooked meals made from fresh ingredients in schools, workplaces and homes. It is incredibly important what Jamie Oliver tries to achieve here not only for us and our health, but also for our future generations. You can find out more about the Food Revolution on Jamie Oliver’s web site as well as you can sign a petition to improve the food in American schools.

And now: Bon Appetit.

      You’re right! There is actually a profession called Food Stylist. Their only job is it to make the food look great and delicious, but the cooks surely play an important part as well!

    Oh wow, LOL!

    I remember the last time I spoke to a photographer. I asked him what he did and he said that he took photograps of… food.

    I laughed really, really hard. Then I saw this.

    And I must admit – the food looks delicious! Now I see why people pay others to do this.

    • Actually, a friend of mine used to be a food photographer – it’s apparently a very tough job to keep the dishes looking fresh and colorful. He used to use a variety of different glossy sprays and plastic garnishes.
