As you know, fine dining isn’t about taste or service alone; is also about ambience. Hundreds of candles light up the Theatre of Cuisines during MIGF’s Gala Night. In the centre, a Latin band plays The Girl From Ipanema, adding to the magical ambience. Salsa your way there today, as there is still time to sample all the food from participating restaurants.

Photography Notes: It was not too long ago, that camera manufacturers advertised shooting under candlelight as a special feature. Today, we do it without batting an eyelid. Better sensitivity and image stabilisation makes it easy. Only thing to watch out for; is the white balance. The camera might automatically over-correct the warm colours. If it does, go to your White Balance settings and try the various presets. Keep it warm to preserve the ambience. Yes. If you want to sound snooty, say ambiance.
