Capture the Bite Food Photography Workshop at East End Market in Orlando (POSTPONED)

Food photography has been a big focus of this blog over the years and I’ve enjoyed speaking and teaching photography at various conferences in the past.

New Cocktail Launches During Great Irish Hooley at Raglan Road Orlando

I stopped by Raglan Road at Disney Springs for their Great Irish Hooley celebration. I’ve covered the Great Irish Hooley before and it’s a celebration to mark six months until St. Patrick’s Day. A celebratory drink was a must. I normally go with a pint of Guinness but I was told they launched a new cocktail made with Irish Gin called PJ’s Poison. PJ’s Poison – Gunpowder Irish Gin, housemade orange marmalade, muddled orange, Fever-tree tonic The cocktail was so refreshing! “PJ’s Poison” is made with Gunpowder Irish Gin, housemade orange marmalade, muddled orange, Fever-tree tonic. It’s very easy to drink and a tad dangerous because it’s the perfect refreshment for hot weather. While it was released for the Great Irish Hooley during the Labor Day holiday weekend, Raglan Road plans on keeping it on the drink menu. Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin It’s always a good time at Raglan Road and this was a nice treat to discover this cocktail at the Hooley. Looking forward to going back again for another PJ’s Poison in the …

Speaking at conferences and teaching how to photograph food has become a regular occurrence in the past year. We hosted our first Capture the Bite workshop which was a success with food and travel influencers at Disney World. We have more photography workshops planned in the near future and those will be announced as details unfold. Ok enough reflecting, let’s get to the food! To celebrate this occasion we stopped at Jollibee, a Filipino fast food restaurant from the Philippines, for lunch with the family and ended with Halo Halo for dessert. No better way to celebrate than sharing this nostalgic Filipino dessert with my family who was in town for my uncle’s 90th birthday celebration and a mini-family reunion. “Halo Halo” means “mix mix”, which is what you do when eating this dessert. Ingredients include sweet beans, jellies, coconut jelly, fruits, covered …
