|Traditional South African Braai|
The objective of the Weekend Cooking website is to provide a photographic food preparationmoverview of some of the meals that I will cook over weekends. These majority of these meals will be a breakfast / lunch on Saturday followed by Sunday lunch.
The listing of ingredients and my own interpretation of measurements and recopies will be detailed in the relevant blog posts and articles documenting food photography and food preparation
I have cooked nearly my entire life following recipes from time to time, but was up to now never required to document any of my dishes, creations and / or experiments. My photography will be able to assist in a great way documenting not just he step-by-step visual process, but will also provide an opportunity for documenting evidence of ingredients, condiments and quantities.
