I do however, really like cooking and baking. I also find a lot of inspiration and pleasure reading food blogs. Smitten Kitchen is my current obsession. Smitten’s author, Deb Perelman, is a fantastic food photographer in addition to her witty writing and truly delicious recipes. She’s inspired me to try my hand at some food photography as well.
For the life of me, I’ve never understood why people have an aversion to brussels sprouts. For one thing, they’re patently adorable in their doll-sized cabbage form. For another, they’re delicious.
I understand if people don’t recognize the next vegetable as that, a vegetable. Romanesco is a hybrid of broccoli and cauliflower that manages to resemble neither but taste like both. Fritters are my newest favoritest thing. In the past two months I’ve made fritters of leeks, sweet potatoes, broccoli, quinoa, and yukon golds. These beauties are a blend of veggies with Thai seasonings. Sometimes I find a good picture involves nothing but an ingredient, a foodstuff in it’s least adulterated form. Much of the food we eat is attractive just as it is.
