Roasted root vegetables with pinenuts and rocket.


Dinner setting



Lobster thermidor, before going into the oven. No photos of it cooked, sorry ... but it came out with a nice golden finish.


Wagyu beef carpaccio with black truffles, black truffle oil, parmesan, and crispy basil leaves.

That tuna with salad just looks so appetising! It must be the colours.

Well done on everything though, it all looks fantastic!

I really must learn to cook like that. +1 to cooking skills and +1 to photography skills.

90% of it is presentation. U could make exactly the same meal and make it look like take away if u didnt think about it.

Im sure Amfibius would agree it wasnt any extra effort to make it look good. Feed the eyes, and the stomach

Oh yer, Amfibius - wipe the plates and get rid of the wine stains on the table runners or your fired

Thanks guys.

derb, not a chef. Cooking is a hobby and it's a nice hobby to have ... since I have to eat every day! My "every day" food is not like this though - I usually make food which will last me for a couple of meals with variations. e.g first night i'll have a roast chicken. Next day the spare chicken will go into a sandwich. Next evening the breast pieces will get shredded and go into a risotto. A Chinese variation - Hainanese Chicken Rice for dinner, then chicken congee for lunch, then fried rice or noodles next evening.

No shortage of food that can be prepared like this ... you just have to use your imagination

colmaz yeh photography is the other hobby. And bl4ck32 is absolutely right ... making the food look nice on the table is very easy.

bl4ck32 ... that is a stain from candle wax and not wine Much harder to get off! I've tried putting boiling water on it to melt it and float it off but that only got a little bit off.

A hot iron and some kitchen roll will get the wax out nicely.

Very nicely done - congrats.

However Lobster thermidor is gastronomic blasphemy :-) such a waste - you can't even taste the lobster!

But disregarding that, awesome lineup and beautiful photography.
