As the title of this post is totally disparate, but seemed a good idea at the time, I have included a picture of a ship….or boat, to be precise. It may only serve to show Christian Harkness, a fellow blogger at http://chrislh.wordpress.com/, the elegance of the mussel boats in the Anse d’Aiguillon, which will be reason enough.
As the title of the post illustrates, a high proportion of my writing is picture driven, as is the case with my cooking.The photographs that I work on each day are either the result of my cooking or an inspiration for what I may be cooking next. In this case it has been a trip down memory lane. This simple dish of baked sea bream, a fish that is cheap and plentiful here, comes from Gennaro Contaldo’s book “Easy Italian”, and is something that I used to cook regularly when Camerahols was in full swing. I need to do it again.
