Food Porn (SFW!)

free counters



Cooking has always been one of my passions – and being an experimental scientist, I love to experiment. I read cookbooks
avidly (I have a collection of more than 200, now!) though these days I tend to seek inspiration more often on the internet.
Rarely, though, do I follow a recipe closely (unless it's a cake, for example, where ingredients and quantities matter),
and frequently improvise, not always successfully, but we've never gone hungry! As a little project to keep me active,
I decided to start this gallery to document my/our culinary efforts and to play around a little with food photography.
I've included some info on each dish, a sort of recipe, though not necessarily with precise quantities and instructions
– you can work those out for yourselves if you wish. Most of the dishes here were made for two people.

(And the title of this gallery is a family joke! My younger daughter frequently sends us images from her mobile phone of food
she's eaten when out, especially things like cream cakes, and these have become known in our family as "food porn"!)

Latest creations are at the beginning. Click on thumbnails for larger image and info/recipe.
