Hawke’s Bay Farmers Market is the subject of today’s photo.
Bex dad Derek was one of three people taking part in a cook off in the middle of the market. They had 30 mins to cook a meal consisting of at least five ingredients purchased from stalls there. The other restriction was that it all had to be prepared on a single BBQ burner.
They all had interesting sounding meals, lamb, venison and paua. Derek’s was the venison one, done with roast potatoes, beetroot and a blackberry sauce.
The result… … Derek won! The judges were very impressed with the taste, presentation and advanced recipe that had been produced. Two of them stated that they would have been happy to have just paid for that meal in any restaurant.
Well done Derek!
… and that brings us to the end of September, and of SeptemberSnaps. Another month of posting a picture a day. I’m happy with most and only got caught short once or twice, needing to look for something rather than having seen something myself during the day. It’s been a lot of fun doing this with Diane, and hopefully she will want to do this again soon as it’s much more enjoyable when she is taking part too. There weren’t many occasions where we wanted to take the same thing, so always good to have someone pointing possible shots out to you, and vise versa.
If not daily photos, then maybe something else, as joint blog projects are great and knowing someone else is taking part keeps you going when it may seem tough. I’m sure some days I must have driven her mad with suggestions on photo opportunities, but hopefully a couple were helpful 🙂
It always makes me want to write more, so I hope this will enthuse me to find topics to post, that aren’t just mindless rants.
