Delicious Lunch

Posted in Food Photography

6372657[1]Did I mention that I love food? I’m sure I have done. Well here it is again, I love food!

With the months getting colder and darker as we approach winter, it is so vital to eat well and look after oneself.

So here’s a quick snap of my lunch today. A juicy salmon fillet sat atop a mass of peppery watercress. Served with couscous spiked with pumpkin and flax seeds. All finished off with a sprinkling of pomegranate. Super tasty and great for boosting the immunity!

Macaron Madness!

Those of you that know me will know I have a penchant for all things food related. Savoury, sweet, adventurous, plain – you name it!

3452187[1]These little goodies have a special place in my foodie heart. I love macarons. I love making them and best of all, eating them! I went through a period of making four to six batches once a week to get them perfect. There were a lot of mis-fortunate almond ‘cowpats’ that tasted divine but were technically wrong.

A bit snowed under at present and soon to familiarise myself with the unpredictabilities of a new oven but once I’m settled, I hope to write a proper post about the art of making the macaron; however, would I just be re-inventing the wheel? I’ll think on it.

Whilst researching on my baking adventure, I found these sites which were particularly useful:
David Lebovitz
Brave Tart
Not So Humble Pie
Plus, Sucré- Ladurée was a fantastic recipe book from the Parisian patisserie that invented the modern macaron in its form we know and love today.

So a photo of my macarons with chocolate ganache to tempt you all, there will be more food related photography and write ups to come.

Signing off for now folks!
