I had some friends over this week-end and wanted to try a new verrine, one with crab meat. Associated with grapefruits, this was really tasty and I like the flashy pink of the grapefruit as well.
I have also peeled and segmented a grapefruit for the first time. Yes, I am not kidding. I never had the chance before. I was always thinking that it was difficult. But I was wrong this is quick and easy. I would never had thought so.
Moreover I bought a mini-studio lately and this is my first picture using it. That’s not my best success, but it is not so bad for a first try. Now I can take pictures by night! Usually my friends are coming over for dinner as a result I am cooking during the afternoon. Now that winter is coming I am always running out of daylight when I want to capture my little verrines.
I am convinced that soon this tool will become my best friend. Right now I still need to learn how to use it properly. Are you also using a mini-studio sometimes?
