Food and Photography - Group Lunch

  • Sep 14, 2012 · 12:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's get together for lunch with a 3 course meal prepared by the students of the French Culinary Institute in Campbell, CA. The lunch will consist of a fixed appetizer and dessert, and a choice of one of three main dishes. There will be a vegetarian selection available.

We will be seated in two tables of 4.

As for the photography component, I've made arrangements to ensure that we'll be allowed to take photos of our dishes at the restaurant. Please don't bring any light stands or complex lighting, as we won't be actually setting up a shooting table.

Myself, I'm just bringing my camera and a speedlight.

There is no set "end time", but the restaurant recommends blocking out a min of 1.5 hours for the full 3 courses.

Technically, the meal is free with a recommended $10 donation to the school per person. Please bring $10 in cash, plus a tip for your server.

    FYI, Focal Press Books is holding a contest this month for photographs of food. It looks like the chances of winning are quite good - there are only 48 entries and some of them aren't even food pictures. http://www.focalpress.com/contest/

    Great meetup event idea. Thanks for planning this. Overall good time, though we did not really get to meet each other to find out who we are, what our background & interests are, etc.

    Great food! Great company! Would have been better if the person on my right wasn't elbowing me each time i stuffed my Chocolate Garden.

    Hi everyone, please make arrangements to arrive early. Our reservation starts at 12:15 so I'd like to be able to get seated at that time.

    If you can't make it, please update your RSVP as soon as possible. We have a large waiting list for this event.

    I'm looking forward to a fun lunch tomorrow, see you then.

    Sorry, I corrected the typo. It is two tables of 4, for a total of 8 in our group.

    I'm a bit confused. The description says "two tables of 8", but there are only a total of 8 spots available for sign up.
