Lunch at Caminos de Michoacan with Cheryl Hurley

Since I had lunch here with Cheryl last September, she's already experienced a few major life changes including leaving her daytime job to write for her lifestyle blog The Stylist Quo, and to start her own social media management and marketing business SQ Modern Media, and getting engaged. Hey, as long as I got this post out before she's married and has babies, I feel pretty good.  I also really don't want much more time to pass before I spread the word about this restaurant. 

Cheryl's keen sense of taste scoped out this gem serving up authentic Mexican dishes and sweet pastries. As with most bloggers I've met through twitter, I suggested breaking through the digital world, sometimes a barrier, and have an authentic face to face conversation.  It was truly a pleasure to meet such a talented writer who can open up about her frustrations and her passions in her blog. She pulls you right in with every emotion. It's authentic and refreshing. I wish I could do the same.

Cheryl was quite passionate about this restaurant. She suggested some amazing dishes to try. The taco salad, the gordita, and her very own combination - fries in guacamole. Delicious. Trust us. The uniqueness of this restaurant is its duality as a bakery that always has breakfast pastries - sweet or meat filled, cookies, and doughnuts in the case. They also offer custom cake orders. With our enquiry about the restaurant, they gave us a chance to visit the kitchen, where all the magic happens, so to speak. The flour dust looks pretty magical. Once I tasted the food, I knew this was a special place.

I'm in Memphsis and love reading about local restaurants and events. Can you tell me what camera was used to photograph this? I'm looking for some camera recommendations and these photos are lovely. Thank you!

Hi, I love using the Nikon d700. The lens I rented for this is a zeiss 50mm f2 makro-planar. I bought my camera used.
