The last is the image I will share in this week of blog entries about my favorite food images that I have taken while on assignment.
This one, however, is one that not only not only did I take image, but I also prepared the food.
Occasionally I draw an assignment that requires me to make the food I am writing about, and it I something I do enjoy.
I am not a professionally trained chef, not by a long shot, but I am an adequate home cook.
This image expresses a lot of culinary ideas to which I aspire.
I love Southern cooking, so beans and peas are important to me. I also love smoked pork sausage, and when sautéed brown and crispy, I can think few things as delicious.
I also have grown fond of hot peppers as a seasoning in many dishes, and many visits to the local Asian markets have introduced to me pumpkin as a great ingredient.
When you combine all of those good things into one pot, you have a dish of some magnitude. If you get lucky with the camera and get a good shot, then you have won on all counts.
