Not bad, not brilliant. I constantly stress against the "wet look" on things that would look unnatural in doing so. The apple in this frame, I'm afraid, speaks just that.

Nicely done, the overall color scheme & balance is outstanding.

This is too sharp (bet you thought you'd never hear that one...huh?).
The current style of food photography rarely if ever has everything in focus. If the food image is being used to idendentify specific product such as, a spice, an herb, a fish or utensil, etc. only then is sharp focus necessary. Otherwise full dof food images went out with Betty Crocker Cookbooks in the 1970/s/80's. Cheers!

Having said that, this will probably place better than my shot.
