I Ate the Model

I get way too focused while working. I was concentrating on my photo shoots at the Four Seasons Resort Maui yesterday and entirely forgot to make a blog entry.

I did my first ever commercial food shot, which was of a Wagyu steak from the Kobe district of Japan. I met Chef Roger of Duo restaurant who told us about the health benefits of Wagyu steak. According to him, and to this Wikipedia article, this steak is heavily marbled, but with healthy fat. According to Wikipedia, "Because of the Wagyu cattle's genetic predisposition and special diet including beer and sake,[1] wagyu yields a beef that contains a higher percentage of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids[2] than typical beef. The increased marbling also improves the ratio of monounsaturated fats to saturated fats."

Maybe I should be eating more beef. I must say that the model for the shoot was delicious and practically melted in my mouth.
