Food photography has often been suggested as a way to continue shooting during the winter, when it typically becomes harder (and less motivating) to pick up the camera. As someone who likes to cook and is an indoor person at heart (even when it’s a sunny day), it makes for a perfect marriage of interests, although it’s only in the last couple weeks that the two have been wed.
Recently I’ve been trying my hand at making risotto, and in trying to see what should be done with leftovers, I found out about risotto pancakes.
As I mention on the Flickr page, the hardest part about making them was figuring out how much egg to use. When I finally had it down (more egg is better), I realized that it’s not unlike Egg Foo Yung. Maybe next time I’ll whip up some gravy to go along with them.
