Food A-Z Project Overview

My Food: A-Z project was the biggest photo project I've done since 52 Weeks Self Portrait project. It kind of started out being food ingredients of the alphabet but about half way through the project I started doing recipes that started with the letter rather than just an ingredient to make it a little more challenging.

Here's some of my accomplishments and failures from this project.
1) Cooked with a few foods that I had never cooked with before: ancho chiles, leeks, lamb, parsnips, tapioca, and almond paste
2) Made some dishes I've always wanted to make but never did until this project encouraged me to: danish pastry, lemon bars, naan, poached eggs, tamales
3) 2 of the recipes I made were failures: naan and sugar pie. The naan was edible, but didn't turn out right. Sugar pie was an inedible disaster.
4) Made my own recipes: tamales and xavier steak. Xavier Steak recipe was my first published recipe on
5) 8 of my photos from the project were accepted by Getty Images: steak, risotto, rice, pizzelles, blue cheese, lemon, juniper berries, and cornish hens,
