Simone's Kitchen

And the winner of the All white theme is…. Andree Oulmann!!

There were so many gorgeous entries for this months All White theme that selecting a winner was really really hard. I am quite happy that I do not make that decision alone but that I share this with my panel of judges; Meeta from What’s for Lunch Honey, Jenn from Jenncuisine and Kay from Kayotic Kitchen. The final winner was not a unanimous vote but most votes count in this case, so the winner of this month’s theme…. *drumroll* is….. Andree Oulmann with her Ajo Blanco.

The image is beautiful with just the bright green of those tiny leaves in the middle of the soup giving the needed point of interest and the one thing your eye is drawn too immediately. So congratulations Andree on doing such a fabulous job! Ofcourse this challenge is not so much about winning but more about challenging yourself to do something different… πŸ˜‰

And I was also thrilled to see some of the people who have previously followed one of my workshops enter in the photo challenge as well. Klaartje didn’t make it easy for herself by creating such a complicated dish but love the end result!

  1. !! Wow ‘‘ all entries are beautiful. I love the one with the old fashioned cocunut cake I would eat it all. The pears covered with rice are cute and the momos photos is beautiful. I love everytime I see this kind of photos and I wish I could make similar ones but I haven’t got enough light at home and (I have no reason why) I finish always adding a colour (many) I suppose it’s my studio :(. Thanks for sharing all this great blogs and their photos also.
