Food Writing (or #79 Say Cheese)

Sometimes the meal just isn’t pretty enough to photograph… so I start writing with my food.

CEOT Taters

And with my condiments.

Ketchup Art

But I still wish my food writing was as stylish as Dead Robot’s I guess I’d better leave the ketchup to him.  Taters are obviously my medium.

    So do you leave the messages, or do you wipe them out by combining the tots and ketchup to eliminate the evidence?

    Don’t you hate it when your spell checker doesn’t work on condiments?

    The inspiration:
    “Cheese is the soul of the soil. It is the purest and most romantic link between humans and the earth.” Pierre Androuet.
    The challenge:
    GK Chesterton: “The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”
    This book is a poetic view of 30 of the best loved French cheeses with an additional two odes to cheese. Recipes, wine pairing, three short stories and an educational section complete the book.
    A unique and amusing Christmas present for all food lovers
