The thing about photographing food is that you have to take the time to photograph it before you eat it. This really doesn’t work well for me, because to do it properly you need to take a fair amount of pictures. Lately I’ve been snapping like, six, hoping they’re fine and then munch munch.
Yesterday I felt like I was making a big error putting beans in pasta, but it was wunderbar.
I was in Wimbledon Village when I stumbled upon a nice little supermarket called Bayley & Sage and found yellow beans, which I was genuinely excited about. I feel like being this excited about finding beans is some kind of reflection on my coolness factor/age …
I also bought locally grown maters and fresh egg tagliatelle.
Yeller beans. Chopped and tossed into the sauce with just a few minutes to go so they’d maintain their crunch.
To make the “sauce” I heated cherry tomatoes, a garlic clove, olive oil, white wine, lemon juice and s&p.
For garnish I added a few sliced raw tomatoes.
Twirl in the salad.
