We’re just trying to make it through the heat at this point against all of the amazing teams from the South. Here’s a picture of our team.

I learned so many incredible photography and food styling techniques from Jen, Matt Wright, Diane Cu and Todd Porter. I also met many wonderful people and spent time chatting with Averie from Loves Veggies and Yoga and Manisha from Indian Food Rocks.
