Food for Thought

I’m working on creating a recipe calendar as a fund raising project for a food bank.  Here are the photo’s that I have so far. Let me know what you think about them.

This one is one of my all-time favorite food photographs, it’s a simple Lemon Curd tart garnished with a sliced fresh strawberry.

Lemon Tart with StrawberryThe next image here is another Lemon Curd Tart this time garnished with Irreplaceable Memories - Imphoto Blog Photo 20110407-_DSC0552a quartered strawberry and a couple slices of Mango and topped with some fresh basil.

Again, staying with the Lemon Curd Tart we have now topped it with some locally picked wild Saskatoon Berries.

Grouse Wrapped in Bacon with Morel MushroomsStaying with wild game, we now have a home smoked goose breast on a bed of fresh spring greens.


Switching now to beef, we have a beef stew with a bit of a twist, instead of using beef stock for the cooking liquid we replaced it with a couple of bottles of Hard Apple Cider.

BEEF STEW IN APPLE CIDER SAUCEYou would think that this luscious looking piece of Lasagna would be carrying on with the idea of beef, but you would be wrong because this lasagna is all vegetarian covered in a rich diary free béchamel sauce.

This dish comes from Spicy Green Restaurant in Prince George, BC, and if you ever find your self in Prince George, you will want to make it a must stop for their South Indian menu.

It comes with a big side of rice, Naan Bread, and Papadam.
