I’ve been fairly self conscious of my photography skills for the last few weeks since the sun sets just after 4pm this time of year. I work until 4:30 so my natural light is limited to Saturday and Sunday. There’s no way I’m the only one who believes there’s no household substitute without installing a diffuser in the middle of my living room – and that’s just not good for the feng shui. The next few months will be some sombre shots but that’s the Canadian reality.
If you’ve never had lotus root, imagine a sweet potato with a floral taste and the consistency is a cross between potato and water chestnut. A colleague of mine introduced me to it this summer and I’ve been thinking of 800 ways to make it since then, the taste and texture stuck with me.
I baked the first batch and noted that it would be much better fried. I was right.
Cause I’m always right.
If this isn’t being served at every hipster pub in the next 5 years, I’ll be pissed.
