  1. Wow. Starting my day with food porn could be dangerous to my health. I am really impressed, Damien, by the range of homemade foods that you have been cooking and baking. They all look delicious and your presentation is so pretty and dressed up that they could easily be published in a cook book. I assume that your creating were for eating and not just for show. I must admit that I was particularly drawn to the Chocolate Fudge, White Chocolate, and Carrot Cakes. Forget about any main courses, let’s just skip straight to dessert. 🙂

    1. It said the reply didn’t work so trying again, definitely for eating, I try a new recipe every day to keep meals exciting. And sometimes I have dessert for breakfast but only if I am up first 🤭😳😂

  2. These are really beautiful Damien. Tbh I have physical problems with swallowing food due to spasms in my throat muscles, even the smell of food sets off difficulties for me and this regularly occurs even with no food/smell around at all. This has been the case for as long as I can remember. So I love your photos and the perfection embodied in your work, and I’d even love to taste some, but I won’t pretend to share in a passion for food because, seriously, eating is very difficult for me – my feelings about food are not like other people’s.
