    what you need is more light, i sit by the window and hardly shoot at dinner time
    a nice 35mm lens will be just right
    keep your setup small and light so you can hand hold it still
    or get a small table pod

    the problem with P&S cameras is that the macro works best at the wide angle range

    Btw these 2 options,
    Shoot at widest focal length (increase dof), but with camera nearer to the subject.(decrease dof)
    Move further away from the subject (increase dof), but zoom in to fill the frame. (decrease dof)
    Is there any advantage for either practice ?
    Well... sometime you have to compromise... think what you want. You can take in the whole thing with everything in focus (moving further away from the plate of food) then crop later on.

    Another thing is, you could use the app that I have mentioned earlier, I did it once, result not that bad with my mobile phone (two actually, one with the torchlight function and another to take photo). I don't have the pic because it was still in the mobilephone and I lazy to pull it out.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.
