Admit it, you’ve caught yourself salivating over a picture of a juicy burger in the pages of Bon Appetite. If it seems as though no matter how many filters you apply your Instagram photos can’t quite match the pages of a menu, you’re right. There’s a magic to food photography. At 6 p.m. Thursday, the Amon Carter Museum hosts a conversation called Designing Food featuring an Austin-based food stylist and photographer who will share the techniques they use to make a mouthwatering image. This obsession with food imagery predates cellphones and magazines. The museum’s new exhibit, Art & Appetite, covers centuries of food imagery in fine art. Admission to the Amon Carter Museum, 3501 Camp Bowie Blvd., Fort Worth, is free and it’s open daily.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, 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 Dallas with no paywalls.
