Clockwise from top left: mango, cinnamon and strawberry leather; pistachio and matcha; strawberry-from-the-garden; mango, ginger and caramelised lemon peel.

Pomegranate caramel dipping sauce on the side. The sweetened sushi rice cooked in cream was delicious, but a little too damp.

epic sushi feast

(viewed 2101 times)
Salmon, swordfish and fillet of venison nigiri. The salmon is topped with slices of it's own skin, salted and fried until crispy. The swordfish was gently poached and served with dill and a beurre noisette. Venison seared and lightly peppered.

More maki than you can shake a stick at. The bright orange stuff is slow-roasted butternut squash puree, which was particularly good. Home-made ponzu also a success. Also sweet white miso soup to start, rhubarb (from the garden) and blood orange jelly with pear and mirin-laced cream to close.

I just wanted practice with my icing gun, really.

Black cherry and vodka cream cheese frosting in the foreground (on chocolate cakes); lemon and ginger buttercream on vanilla sponge in the background.

Into the red end

(viewed 1540 times)
Pulled* the Infra-red filter out of an old Fuji Q1 the other day. Added a visible light filter made of some exposed film.

Here is infra-red imaging. In order: dog, some carved stone (the deep blue/black background on the right of the frame is the sky - clear blue to eyes) and a conifer tree. Plants, generally, reflect infrared so appear white. The clear sky is a massive heatsink, so appears black.

During the reassembly of the camera, I somehow managed to make it extreme-macro only. Will rebuild at some point to try to correct this.

* "smashed", sadly.
