I'm wondering: when you're cooking do you need to see a photo of the finished recipe; like this one for Baked Herb Eggs? Or do you not care about seeing an exemplary photo? Everyone has heard the saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words." Of course, as Stonewall Kitchen's photographer, I would love to believe that it's true! I don't think it's just the photographer in me speaking here. I do love to make photos; but I also love to cook... and to eat! I find that the big cook books (the ones that are the same thickness as a phone book) are great for looking up classic recipes. However, when it comes to trying something new I really want to see a picture. If I can see a photograph I feel more confident that I've gotten it right and that my cooking creation won't embarrass me if I serve it to friends!
What do you, our blog readers, twitter followers & Facebook fans, think? Give us your opinion! Use the list here on our blog between now and 10AM on Monday and you'll be entered to win a copy of our new appetizers cookbook. Just looking at this big beautiful photograph, by Stonewall Kitchen co-owner Jim Stott, I'm thinking that a few more people are going to become "cooking is better with photos" believers!
