Chat, WHAT'S ON THE MENU?

This week I would like you all to take a photograph that would look good on a restaurant (or cafe) menu. Anything from your local greasy spoon to a mitchelin star restaurant . This could be an actual food photograph (a starter, soup, main, dessert, hor's deuvres, drinks etc) or a picture that might look good on the front of the menu (to represent the restaurant/cafe itself) i.e. a sea view for a fish restaurant, a counrty kitchen for a local, smaller cafe etc.
 
No PP restrictions.

Pictures to be taken between 00.01am Monday 27th August 2012 to 23:59 Sunday 2 September 2012 .
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 3 September 2012.
Poll will be up Tuesday 4 September 2012.
Winner to be announced Saturday 8th September 2012.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

Post a topic on the Sunday following your declared win

au contrere or however you spell it.....Soups, salads, baked potatoes...all low fat and can make yummy photos too!!!! Imagine the butter (well low fat spread..lol) as it melts and runs down th skin, glazing it as it goes..... Or a delicious, plump salad with a lovely, glistening oil and vinegar dressing. The colours and the textures.....So, no excuse....lol Im dieting too. You been watching the programme ' The Hairy Dieters'?

It's not compulsary to eat the props! You could break with tradition for once.

Or make a fruit salad from your Jinky Fruty XP 100.

(DD it's au contraire, if I remember my French from way back when.)

They made low fat pies using pizza base mix rather than pastry. 300 cals rather than 800 in a regular mince pie. I tried them last night and they were gorgeous.  Im currently cooking their spicy chicken. A whole chicken, skin removed and cut underneath to split it and flatten it, then marinaded in low fat yoghurt mixed with spices and roasted. Once done, its browned under a grill. Smells delicious.

As there are many things that need my attention at the moment, and also to prevent people trying out high calorie dishes, just to take a photograph, I kept it simple. Very simple and very non fattening.

So here's my non threatening-non fattening menu cover for Ristorante Italiano:


The Italian Job.

I'm waiting to see what jinky comes up with.

I've got my concept, and will try to get the job done tomorrow if I can :)

I cannot compete with Jinky, so I kept it simple and non seductive.
