Asparagus Rises to the top   Leave a comment

Image attached is my first crop of home grown Asparagus. Planted about 6 months ago in Brisbane Australia and after allowing the growth of full shoots and flowers(which are quite pretty) I have been able to harvest 4 spears that have risen above the soil surface.

I took this opportunity to Photograph them as you see in the image as well as stitch a panorama for my Macro Pano Food series.

Wedding Anniversary 19 Years

What to do for my best friend and life partner. Dinner? Movie? Quiet Night in? Well I figured a Sunset Picnic would be perfect. While wandering through the supermarket I searched for all the things we both love to fill a basket. Brie, Liverwurst, Proscuitto, Blue Cheese, Fresh Turkish Bread, Plain crackers, French Onion Dip, Maple Flavoured Cashews, Coloured Corn, Liquorice Bullets, Greek Yoghurt, Croissants, Lemon,Lime and Bitters and our traditional gift of Gillian Chocolate Shells.
Linda, Me our puppy Indy, Mickey Mouse rug, Picnic basket and a nice park to enjoy the sun setting. For us perfect. What do you think?

Dinner service   1 comment

At the big house dinner parties were a royal experience. Beautiful plated entree, played main with silver service vegetables, and plated dessert and petitfours.

The silver service vegetable was my first task to master. 3 varieties each dinner party and they changed each dinner party. Broccoli flowerets, zucchini cut into flowers, stuffed zucchini flower with baby zucchini. Baby carrots, carrot batons in a carrot ring. Baby cauliflower gratins, poms bolligere, poms William, chateau potatoes, bean bundles, cabbage dumplings and the list goes on.
I had to learn many new skills, the most notable would be patients, also vegetable carving, turning(a skill I still love), attention to details, near enough is not good enough and more patients.

Next post some entrees I think. Like share and comment please
