Weddings and Mash
As a wedding photographer you capture and compose images and present them in the best possible way. At some weddings you are also a food taster. When you are offered a meal you get a chance to sample everything in moderation.
After a long day always start your meal with soup because you have not eaten for a long time.
What comes next is the main meal. Eat, digest and get back to the job. You now have more energy to keep you going.
Do not forget your afters. I love custard.
Back to the title of this blog!
On Saturday, 22nd September 2018 I attended the National Wedding Show and was presented with a magazine and I collected a carrier bag containing food. There was a canned drink but it started leaking when it was damaged.
The Green & Blacks chocolate did not last very long. The sea salt flavour was nice.
I have not eaten mash potato for years so I had to check the ingredients and the instructions on the back. I decided to prepare the mash potato with raw garlic, salt and coarse grounded black pepper.
Before doing the mash potato I had to prepare some vegetables.
Place in the steamer at the correct time intervals set for cooking on the vegetable packets.
With the vegetables cooking finely chop the garlic and place in a bowl.
When the vegetables are cooked, remove from heat but leave covered to maintain temperature. Boil some water for the mash and fry sausages according to time indicated on packet, or until brown all over.
Leave the sausages at the side and pour the mash powder into a bowl and add the salt and pepper.
Measure the boiling water into a jug and add to bowl with mash potato. Whilst adding the hot water mix in the raw garlic. Keep stirring until fluffy.
Add to plate and enjoy.
The lighting was a mixture of natural light through blinds and an LED light bulb.
