Roasted Ratatouille

I’ll carry on the burger post later. I thought I’d better do something that involves a photograph for the moment.

The photograph is Sausages with Roasted Ratatouille. It’s not quite the same as the recipe photograph that I had. My vegetables never seem to cook as attractively as the ones in recipe pictures. It also didn’t help that I forgot to buy peppers and couldn’t get the right sausages. And they said red onions but I could only get the small size in brown. That probably made a difference too.

Despite this it didn’t turn out too badly in the end, and with a bit of rearrangement three floppy mini peppers from the back of the salad drawer put up quite a decent show.

I was quite pleased with the way it worked out and it had a good flavour thanks to three cloves of wrinkly garlic (you could probably use ordinary garlic but I always leave mine hanging round for a few weeks to mature) and a couple of sprigs of rosemary from the garden.

As long as I can use my own rosemary I can pretend I’m a proper cook.

The other good thing about this dish is that I’m never in a hurry to eat vegetables so I remembered to take the photograph. I’m also not embarrassed about taking pictures of my food like I am when I’m in public. (See comments from beatingthebounds in the previous post about this.)

    At least veg roasted with some nice fatty meat have a bit more flavour! On the public food photo front, we clearly need our own Q type figure to provide a wide-angle camera discreetly hidden in a stylish lapel-badge. Doesn’t quite fit the adrenaline junky Go-pro target audience image, but maybe they’ll branch out. On reflection, a middle-aged man wearing a hidden camera in public might find himself facing a range of other difficulties. Perhaps not.

      We could build a camera into a fork, like the one they use in dictionary corner on Countdown. Apart from the fact ours would have three prongs on the end.

      I keep thinking of buying a smaller camera for this sort of work.
