Did I say live blogging? That just shows that right in the middle of the pessimist there’s a true optimist. As if anyone had time to do any blogging, all we managed to type were the 140 characters of Twitter and hardly even that now and then. I think I can safely say that the first Plate To Page Workshop in Weimar was a great success and that one of the main reasons to that were the fantastic people who decided to spend their time and money on coming to Weimar to hear up talk about food photography and food writing and how to make the two work together. Just look at all the people in the photo that we took on our way to a French/Breton restaurant with fabulous food, can’t you see how they shine with passion, dedication and personality? Simone, Mona, Jenn, Astrid, Ken, Mitch, Deborah, David, Julia, Ishay, Jasmine and Arthi-all of them incredibly focused and talented and what else can you wish for when you are leading a workshop? I know that we – me, Jamie, Jeanne and Meeta, were completely delighted with these people and that we have all found new friends!
