A picture can speak a thousand words, we have heard, and when the subject of the photograph is something that is most fundamental for life to sustain and thrive, it gets all the more interesting. For, when a photograph is that of food, it just doesn’t stop with telling the world about the dish’s existence but stirs in its audience a range of diverse emotions – from being enticed to smitten to feeling the hunger pangs. I attempt to demystify the charming world of food photography by speaking to food bloggers, Soma Rathore (www.ecurry.com) and Chinmayie Bhat (www.love foodeat.com) and Divya Yadava, food photographer and culinary consultant (www.divyayadava.com).
Rocky (Singh) and Mayur (Sharma) anchor the award winning, cult food and travel show ‘Highway On My Plate’ on NDTV Goodtimes. Their bestselling book ‘Highway On My Plate – The Indian Guide to Roadside Eating’, based on their show, recently won a ‘Best in the World’ Award at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in Paris. The duo answer my questions on their show ‘Highway On My Plate’ (HOMP), the book, food, their experiences on the road and dream trips.
