Taking Decent Photographs of Food Is Virtually Impossible.

I don’t like awards show parties as much as I used to, mostly because these days loud noises bother me and I much prefer sweatpants to any kind of formalwear, including jeans.

That said, I do like to make fun finger foods for award shows.

This year, we had veggie starters — baby bell peppers filled with peppery boursin cheese and endive leaves smeared with jalapeno hummus:

Followed up by smoked chicken with pesto mayo on cucumbers:

(To make: thinly slice a store-bought rotisserie chicken breast, then chop into small cubes and combine it with 3 tablespoons mayo, 1 tablespoon pesto and lots of pepper, then spoon onto sliced cucumbers and top with a sprig of fresh rosemary.)

And, lastly, sushi:

Fine, I’ll admit it: All I did here was arrange it on the plate and add the soy sauce.
