    And very tasty :)
    There would have been fresh buns in this photo, but we ate them.

    We had a debate about whether it was soup or stew :)
    Whichever, I'm looking forward to leftovers for lunch!

    Possibly not the most attractive photo David.

    Not my idea of soup... sure it tasted great though!
  • David de Groot said:
    Well yes, it's not that photogenic, and this is after it's cooled slightly (but warmer, it looks the same anyway). Feel free to add pointers and tips on how to photograph it in a way more pleasing....
    Indeed it did :)

    David, you did a beautiful job of photographing the soup, I don't think anyone could make it look better than you have which is sad but true.
    You like to cook, I like that in a man.

    stodge- not soup, it would probably have been called gloup or something like that in our house !! I agree - its between a soup and stew, bet it was luvverly though !
    to make it look more pleasing- well if it was more liquid a swirl of cream, a spoon next to it, perhaps a little parsley leaves on the top and a few carefully chosen extras- oh and set the bowl on a plate- like you were setting it up for a magazine or cookery book. ( my opinion only of course ! )

    Ah see useful suggestions :) I can cook up a storm but presentation has always been a bit of a problem.
    BTW, the err soup, was also very tasty smeared inside a pita bread with some cheese and then lightly dry-fried in a pan until warm.
    It was really more soup like when I served it the first time, but the beans, barley and peas keep soaking up more moisture. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)
