I recently posted a picture to accompany something I was writing about cherries. It was a picture of a clafoutis a delicious cherry tart made in this part of France. After I posted it I was surprised at the amount of comments the pie got! After all, this is a gardening blog!!
Then, today, I went to my friend Kate’s blog Hills and Plains Seedsavers
And lo and behold she had also posted a picture of a cake. In this case it was a cake she had been given on a visit to see the gnomes who write the blog The Mad Gnomes Strike Again
The article was lovely, but what really attracted my attention were the two comments. There were 8 photos in Kate’s piece. That is because she is much better at digital photography than I am. One day I will find something I am better at than her!
So, I visited her page, there were two comments on a piece with 8 photos…. And both comments mentioned the one picture of a cake
I just thought that maybe our respective blogs are becoming not just veggie oriented, not even food oriented but distinctly cake oriented. Don’t get me wrong, I have no complaints about this at all. Austrian apple cake, French clafoutis cherry tart – who cares where the next cake comes from, just roll it right in here please.
Tomorrow is Saturday and in the morning I shall be making my weekly visit to the lovely market at Villereal. I'm going to take my camera, as I do every week. I'm going to take some photos, as I try to every week. I'm hoping this time I will have something to show you, as I also do every week. Wish me luck.
Baked Feta - I love the texture that feta acquires when baked, firm and compact and steak-like and very different from its crumbly fresh incarnation, and I love to sea...
