Topic #22--"Food" Entry

A delectable entry from Kate--my mouth is watering!

"i knew that i had to do something with this photograph. I used a few filters on it and then used some brushes to "paint" the photograph. I've never done anything like this before so it was pushing the envelope for me and lots of fun.

this meal of pecorino cheese, prosciutto and bread was one that i had in Pienza, Tuscany, last year. there was also olive oil, balsamic vinegar and fresh tomatoes, picked right out of the kitchen garden (with a bottle of homemade wine, of course!). what made it so memorable was that everything except the bread, was made on the farm where we stayed, an agriturisimo, in the middle of an olive grove. fresh, intense flavours...fabulous taste!"
