Depending on the feel of the book, the bright photos could be great. I personally like food shots that are very bright. Minor comment - I think #1 should have been more rear lit to show more shape. #4 the plate is too large since the shot is of the food, a large plain white plate doesn't add to the shot at all. #5 the chopsticks should be facing away rather than towards the viewer. #6 is too low of an angle creating an emphasis on the underside of the plate. I also think that one the focus point was missed, it seems to be the underside of the top object rather than the flat surface of either object. On flat objects like that I would rather have lit low from the side to show the texture of the item.
