Chef competition . vegan food services . bay area photographer
I truly enjoyed photographing the Vegan food Service’s Vegan Chef competition. It was a privilege to be behind the scenes watching the Chefs compete. Each Chef was noticeably passionate about cooking. It was inspiring watching them create their amazing vegan dishes and the food smelled delicious.
