Black and White Wednesday #18

The issue of taking photos of food in restaurants is one that is constantly being brought up - whether it's by media doing its usual bit of dog whistling in a vein attempt to stay relevant - or restaurant owners/chefs that believe that all publicity is good publicity. Yes, there are legitimate issues and there are right and wrong ways to take photos in restaurants - no, you don't take a tripod to dinner with you;  I'll like to never see another table full of bloggers and their slr's snapping away constantly for five minutes at the appearance at each dish and finally I'd love to see the flash button permanently disabled but hey, a discretely taken photo shouldn't be an issue.

So for this Black and White Wednesday hosted by the unflappable Susan from The Well-Seasoned Cook, I thought I'd include a photo that always brings a smile to my face.

Weekend Herb Blogging #308 - Recap


It's been a great pleasure to host this edition of Weekend Herb Blogging - through the week delicious dishes from around the world have been appearing in my inbox. One of the things I love about WHB is how we can see the seasons progress around the world - with winter approaching in the northern hemisphere, you'll find an excellent selection of preserves. I'm sure there's going to be something here to get those tastebuds working.

Without further delay, onto the recipes - they have been arranged alphabetically by main ingredient.
