I don't have children, so this analogy is about to make a lot less sense. But choosing photos for the Best Food Photos of 2010 slideshow was like trying to pick a favorite child. (I think.) Regardless, it was difficult.
Ever since we've started running slideshows with our weekly cafe reviews (like the photo above of shrimp and grits in the kitchen at the newly rebuilt Brennan's), we've been blessed with a bounty of beautiful photos, each one more mouthwatering than the last. And God knows we've covered our share of amazing food events and festivals this year, too.
So check out our slideshow and explore our favorite food moments of 2010 through photos. At the very least, it'll get your appetite piqued for Christmas dinner.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
