... take pictures of the food?! Iím cooking away and my mom is here. As Iím putting out trays she is snapping pictures of the food. I had to take a time out to post this question. She always did this. Iíve been known to take pictures of my dinners on vacations or at restaurants also so guilty here lol.

We are not Italian but taking pictures of food is a ďthingĒ with my son and his friends. They post the pictures on social media.

What does being Italian have to do with taking photos of food? I have lots of friends on FB who do so, and they come from all sorts of ethnic backgrounds.

I grew up in a BIG Italian family and we never took pictures of our food!

We always had lots of food but it was never really photographed unless it was captured in a picture of the people.

I'm Italian too and I don't remember anyone taking pictures of our weekly feasts or holiday dinners.

Taking pictures of oneís food has become common with the invention of the cell phone camera. Iím Italian and take pics of food on occasion. Mostly what I cook in order to share recipes and ideas with my sis. Both sides of my family are Italian and never did that when I was growing up. Food has become an art form these days so I can see why people may snap away. My youngest brother takes pics of restaurant food all the time, especially when he travels.

I'm Italian and we took pictures of food, but but the people cooking it are in the picture, too. They're my treasures from my growing up years since everyone in them has passed. That's an Italian thing, too - discussing who died and how old they'd be if they were still alive. ("Nonna would be 110 if she were still with us!") That's what my cousins and I were doing this evening.
