Earlier this week, I cooked six recipes and took zero photos.
To make up for this and to bring happiness to you, my readers, I bring you four photos of one recipe.
I am presently staying in the north of the island that has very much become my home. Last night, I visited an old friend (old in friendship years – not in life years) and cooked him dinner while I was there. He took photos and decorated his Christmas tree. We were a good team.
Prepare now to be ‘bombed’ with photos!
The recipe: ‘Mushroom Sauce with Ham and Tomato
The beautiful gas stove: I was experiencing a little ‘stove envy’ – mine at home has those horrible solid plates that take five minutes to heat up and sometimes longer to cool down. This beautiful stove gave me total control – and I like that!
The Chef’s Hand: waiting for photographer to take photos and sit down to eat.
The Close Up: those are lovely porcini mushrooms you see in there.
Last night: #87 ‘Mushroom Sauce with Ham and Tomato’ served, as Marcella suggests, with penne pasta. With an old friend at his table.
Apologies to my functional but less-than-enthusiastically-loved stove at home.
