This trend is so popular, that they now have an International Food Photography Day. This year, the day will celebrate and promote food photography on the 13th of November. The theme this year is "Snap the Rainbow" and everyone is encouraged to capture the colours of food on their phones of camera and share them on social media.
If that wasn't a good enough excuse to go out this week and treat yourself to some fine food, if you share your pictures on twitter using @foodphotoaward and the hastag #allfoodsbrightandcolourful you can go into the draw to win a Fuji Film camera and lens worth £1078.

In the spirit of the competition, I thought I would share with you some of my fondest food memories of 2014. If you have some food photography that you'd like to show off, share them on my Facebook page or tweet them to @EdinburghWishes with the tag #Ilovefood
