Over the last few weeks, the day job has had to take priority over the blog, but worry not food fans, I’m back with a classic Slow The Cook Down recipe. My bacon and cheese bread bowl is filthy indulgent and packed full of flavour. Four cheeses, melted together with red jalapeños and chives, stuffed into a hollowed out loaf of bread ready for some first class dipping action.
For some reason, this post has been one of the hardest I’ve had to put together. Not the actual recipe development and cooking (it’s melted cheese with bacon people!), but the photos and writing of the post have been really tricky – this has been in my drafts for a good week!
Food photography is something that really doesn’t come naturally to me, and I do tend to get a tad frustrated when something just isn’t working. I use natural light for my photos, if it’s a grey sky, which it often is in sunny blighty, my technical skills often aren’t quite up to the challenge! I found writing about this dish extremely hard as well – maybe that’s why I’ve gone off on a tangent a bit with this post! I mean, it shouldn’t be this hard for me to write about how yummy this cheese and bacon bread bowl is!
My brain has been pretty pre-occupied with my work life since Christmas, working on a challenging, but very exciting project, and it seems as though all of my blogging knowledge has been thrown completely out of the window! I’m hoping that getting this post out there will help me get on track again!
Lesson learnt….work less, post more, keep cooking and take a bloody photography course! And while I’m busy with that, do give this bread bowl a go at home, I promise it won’t be as much stress as writing about it was for me!
