I am planning on shooting meals I cook and will make a book just for personal menu use.

I currently have been using the 55-210 lens because I feel if I stand further back it takes better macro shots then the kit lens.

Not to quibble about the definition of Macro, I think you're on the right track. Generally speaking, longer is gooder. Concentrate on your lighting. Use a tripod and lower the ISO to 100.

There are a million tips and tricks to food photography. Google is your friend.
