'The Pastry Queen' opens restaurant in Fredericksburg

Photo: , License: N/A


Rebecca Rather is best known for her sugary treats, having run Rather Sweet Bakery & Café in Fredericksburg and published a cookbook, The Pastry Queen. She's now foraying into the savory world at The Pink Pig, a new new Fred-based restaurant focusing on Southern foods in a rustic setting. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you're in the area (maybe for some wine tasting?), enjoy their outdoor wine bar and cheese plates.

With the holiday season upon us, many will be tempted to whip out their smartphones to document their meals. Before you do, you should seek some professional advice on how to get the best photo. Chef David Gilbert from Sustenio at the Eilan Hotel Resort & Spa recently wrote a list of iPhone photography tips for food photos on his blog, BeyondThe Kitchen.com (revelatory tip #1: don't use the flash!). While some may look to photographers for photo advice, I look to chefs because they're the ones who see the most food pics.
