In the past I have seen fellow bloggers share blog post of their fails in the kitchen, I thought I would share some food related photographs that did not make a blog post in their own right.
Here is a vegetarian roast dinner with mock 'meat' slices. I loved the colours but the presentation let me down.
I have been making Courgetti for a while, but never featured it as the final dish always looks a bit scraggy.
This dish made with new potatoes, cherry tomatoes and black olives is called Airport Potatoes. It is a recipe that I have made twice with home grown cherry tomatoes. It was bookmarked from Good Cooking: The New Essentials by Jill Dupleix tasted utterly gorgeous, but it looked an utter squishy mess.
This Roasted cauliflower salad with kale and sun dried tomatoes just did not photograph well and looked a bit insipid.
Below is an Jumbo or Giant Israeli Couscous that looked like slug eggs and the roasted summer vegetables, did not not enliven it either.
What made it look even worse was the serving it with a Moroccan Kofta that looked very unappetising on the side that I was embarrassed to share it without seeing the funny side.
I bookmarked a Warm Brussels Sprouts Salad recipe from a new cookbook and it just looked an utter mess that I did not have the heart to share it.
I had been given some fresh homegrown green chickpeas by my mother last year and was excited to make this savoury fresh green chickpea rice, but but I snapped it with my little phone and it did the dish no favours.
This is a Root Vegetable Stew made only a couple of months ago also snapped late in the evening on my little phone.
This is a Aloo Gobi Curry looking so yellow.
As vital wheat gluten becomes readily available in the UK, my seitan mock meat experiments continue.
This is seitan bacon. It tasted alright, but it looked so brown.
And another attempt at seitan bacun with streaky marks. It looked a lot more impressive, but a little charred and overdone to share. The seitan 'bacon' recipe comes from The Gentle Chef
Finally, a Mung Bean and White Bean Curry, again the colour
I am sure I will share more not so pretty dishes in the future. Do you have pictures tucked away in virtual files unfit for sharing and food blogging ?
