Rogue Photography: What’s Your Worst Picture of R.J. Cooper’s Cooking?

Chef R.J. Cooper is asking local food bloggers not to take snapshots of the food at his hugely hyped new eatery Rogue 24. His reason: "They don't take good pictures," the Rogue Toque tells WaPo's Tom Sietsema in the critic's "First Bite" column this week.

He's right. Check out the atrocious BlackBerry photo (above) that this editor/critic/blogger took of the olives/goat cheese/bell pepper/basil dish at the Coop's spring preview of his 24-course extravaganza in New York. Not good at all.

Send in your not-so-good photos of Cooper's cooking to hungry@washingtoncitypaper.com and Y&H will pick the worst of the bunch.
