Delectable Food, Great Photographs from Rob Davidson

Hello and welcome The Epicure in Light.

Perhaps you’d like to know a little bit about me (or perhaps not in which case skip ahead). I grew up in a foodie family, Mom studied at Le Cordon Bleu school in London, England, and we traveled extensively, always planning our trips from restaurant to restaurant.  I learned to love food of all types, from French haute cuisine to a good street vendor hotdog.  Our family travels also led me to discover photography which I chose to pursue as a profession. Of course one of my favorite subjects to photograph is food, which I’ve been doing for over 30 years.

I also love to cook (it’s my second favorite way of making love), and I seem to be very good at it, judging from the responses I get.

And so now I’ve decided to combine my passions and share them with you. When I cook I rarely use recipes, preferring to combine flavors in my head, imagining how they will work together and then just going with it. Of course this means I can rarely create the same dish twice. So I’ve decided to start writing down my meanderings through the world of flavors, photographing the results and sharing both with you.

For those of you interested in the food itself, I’ll have recipes that you can download, print out and give them a try yourself. For those interested in the photography I’ll be sharing some behind-the-scenes info, photos and occasionally video.

I’ll also be telling you about anything that I run across that tastes really good… Neat restaurants, ingredients, stores, whatever crosses my path that I think you’ll enjoy!

    Rob, your website is very nice. Lovely pictures and great tutorial. One suggestion I have is that it’s a bit hard to read the text, with the dark background. The whole thing is looking too dark.
    Just my two cents – I hope it’s not offensive. And feel free to remove this comment as you see fit :).

  5. Hi Bob, it’s really nice to find your georgeous blog!! Toronto is a very interesing city with very diverse cuisines. I traveled there not long ago, really liked it. I like your food photographs very much. Seems like you are a professional food photograher for a long time. If you get a chance, can you also talk about the life of being a professional food photographer? I’m sure lots of food bloggers wanna know that.
