Food, Places, News & Stories


  • "Takes the most awesome colorful pictures! Makes me want to retire on an island with whatever plate of food she’s taken a picture of. Has the most beautiful daughters and really appreciates life. And that comes out in her pictures” Indigowaters
  • "Brenda has consistently delivered quality editorial work together with some of the best photography we have ever had at Miami Culinary Tours. Brenda is approachable, personable and detailed oriented. I highly recommend Brenda to any organization."

  • “I love Brenda’s site but I must tell you that her photography is so good that it is quite likely that one can actually put on weight looking at, and envying, the delectable photos she takes of condiments, entrées, special of the day, or mouth-watering desserts –waiting to be consumed by hungry food voyeurs.

Her other photos of children, friends and landscapes are equally inspiring but certainly not a problem to the production of added calories.

If you must view her site, I suggest you have a slight snack of celery stalks or slices of carrot on hand — least you be tempted to replicate the fine cuisine she so aptly presents to anyone who views her site.” – Tom Farrell

  • “This testimonial is long overdue as I have been following Masala Cha’s work for over two years. I must confess that her pictures improve with each new restaurant she dines at and with every special family celebration she chooses to share with us through this medium. 

If you can’t stick to your diet, it may be through no fault of your own. The detail, color and lighting in Masala Cha’s images of “edible art” are making mouths water and stomachs grumble in countries all around the globe. Each week the beauty of her extraordinary dishes – some common, some unusual – tantalize fans of her work who may not have been hungry until they happened to drop by. 

While I have noticed that Masala Cha’s photos of desserts seem to get a lot of well-deserved attention, I truly enjoy her images of appetizers and entrees. Her detailed descriptions, as well as her personal assessments of the food, are a nice touch as well.” – Paul Hudson
