I’m not sure I’ve really addressed the brief today, but I wanted to try my hand at photographing food with a little more panache than usual. I’d like to have a go at styling and setting up a food “scene” sometime soon, but today I concentrated on the food itself, the composition and cropping to highlight the star of the show. One of my closest friends told me that I always have pink plates in my food photos, so I’ve also tried to shake that up a little 😉
I went to a friend’s house today, there were about 10 of us getting together for a Tupperware party (LOL). She made mini pulled-pork tacos so I made a pineapple & mint salsa for her. We also had pot stickers (gyoza) and sausage rolls, as well as my favourite kiwi invention – Lolly Cake – and some other bits and pieces.
I also made my new specialty yesterday – Crab Linguini with Lemon, Chilli & Garlic – so easy to make and absolutely delicious. I might try it with prawns next time 🙂
I’m happy to share any recipes, although I don’t have the Lolly Cake recipe, I’m sure I can get it for you.
(Note that I didn’t take the photos of the olive plate or the Lolly Cake today, those are from previous parties!)
I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend. I’m looking forward to tomorrow, but am also sad that it will be our last week. I will have to see what’s coming up to try out next!
