A roving pop-up dinner club exploring the food and culture of the Middle East is a collaboration between writer Sara Liss and Maude Eaton, a food and beverage consultant and founder of South Florida Foodies.

“Not many people realize that Arabic food influenced Southern Italy but it’s there in the culinary history of Sicily. So we’re focusing on that intersection of Arabic spices and techniques with traditional Sicilian cooking,” says Liss.

I’ve attended their supper club and it’s a lot of fun with great company and outstanding food! I wish I could attend but taking a food photography, writing course, see below.

It’s designed for the food blogger, but anyone interested in improving their food photography is invited to attend.

The class will learn practical tips on improving their food photography, basic lighting, props and styling, break down a photo shoot, and finish with a no-pressure photo shoot garden party.  We’ll learn from each other, increase everyone’s knowledge, and build the food blogging community.

In addition, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and food writer extraordinaire Liz Balmaseda will teach a 45-minute seminar on concise writing.

Held at the Marriott Hotel in West Palm Beach and sponsored by Bistro 1001, the workshop’s Garden Party will provide shutterbugs with a chance to photograph an array of tantalizing treats in their beautiful garden setting. Onli Beverages will provide beautiful drinks to complement the food and after we’ve shot to our heart’s content, we’re invited to linger and enjoy the party.
