Cross Section Collection 229/365 Reflection on the dissection of just a selection. Intricate interconnections, asymmetrical imperfections... bright as confections. Enough to inspire a predilection towards genuflection, like a certain Snow, after some introspection... I know, I know!

Udon Know You're Beautiful 227/365 And that's what makes you beautiful! Yes, I sing to my ramen. And you would too, if it tasted this good. Although I used udon noodles, I still call it ramen, cause that's the spirit of the dish! Yesterday's pork stock-turned-broth (with added soy sauce and sesame oil), sesame-fried roast chicken slices, shredded vegetables, crispy chicken skin and (always the highlight for me) half a perfectly soft-boiled egg. This is reason enough for anyone to make stock 🤤 #judgeshootsfood365 #secondsplease • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #fromscratch #ramen #udon #chickenramen
Link's Revenge 225/365 In this case, a dish best served hot. OoT fans will know what I'm talking about... #judgeshootsfood365 #cookincucco Aaaaand that's a wrap! 7 days, 7 Zelda recipes, in honour of @bingingwithbabish's #eatwhatyouwatch. It's been a blast, but now I'm looking forward to sleeping again... (I know this isn't actually a recipe from the game, but we all know it damn well should be! This is real simple, just a whole chicken patted dry, rubbed with oil, garlic powder, and celery salt, stuffed with a whole lemon and a bunch of lemongrass. Roast on a bed of carrot and onion at 170°C until the juices run clear, cooking time will depend on the size of your Cucco, I mean, Chicken! Serve accompanied by soothing ocarina melodies, and plenty of... thyme! 😆 Oh, and Andrew, if you're reading this, I just wanna say that I absolutely love what you do. Your videos are an inspiration to me, and every week I look forward to more. I've got my fingers crossed for this competition, it would be such an incredible honour to win. Congratulations on your book!) • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #creativelive #vzcomade #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #zelda #cucco #ocarinaoftime @nintendo #nintendo #inmykitchen #tablescape
Totally Baked 224/365 Anybody for Tough Meat-Stuffed Pumpkin? No? How about Meltingly Tender Meat-Stuffed Pumpkin? 😉 I'm actually pretty surprised that you didn't do this recipe in your first episode, @bingingwithbabish! #eatwhatyouwatch This recipe is wicked easy, but it takes a little time. If you're going to have to slow cook meat, my favourite choice has to be oxtail. So flavourful, and full of beautiful sticky collagen. Cook it much like you would a boeuf bourguignon, browning the meat before sautéing onion, garlic, carrot, bay leaf, rosemary, and crushed tomatoes in the pan. Deglaze with red wine and a dash of worcestershire, throw everything into a pot (with lots more wine) and simmer, partially covered, for about 4 hours. The liquid should be reduced and the meat should be fork tender. Then simply hollow out your pumpkin, fill it with the stew and bake at medium for about an hour and a half (for a small pumpkin). Lift the lid and inhale deeply... when you come back to earth, serve with roasted pumpkin seeds sprinkled with sea salt. Koko would be proud. #judgeshootsfood365 #bakedinthekitchen • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #creative #inmykitchen #onmytable #tablescape #fromscratch #jj_still_life #breathofthewild #zelda @nintendo #nintendo
Shoulda Bought A Soft Shell 223/365 I had bought two frozen crabs the other day for the seafood omelette and I only used one, so I figured why not make use of the remaining one today and do the Crab Stir Fry from Breath of the Wild? #eatwhatyouwatch I'll tell you why not, me... because hard-shell crabs are a stupid idea to try to stir fry! The other crazy thing about this recipe, is that it uses a combo of sweet and hot peppers. Now, Link might insist that cooking hot peppers turns them sweet, but good luck with that! Of course, the whole thing is flavoured with Goron Spices, so it's sure to have a kick either way. To add a bit of much needed colour, I threw in some tender-stem broccoli, but the real star of the show is the sauce. I went for a mix of peppercorns, butter, scorched soy sauce and cream. Goes so well with the stir fried veggies! #judgeshootsfood365 #nowwhereismyhammer • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #creativelive #vzcomade #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #crab #shellfish #seafood #zelda #breathofthewild
Seafood Omu-rice 222/365 For this Legend of Zelda recipe for @bingingwithbabish's #eatwhatyouwatch, I added my own twist to the Seafood Omelette from Breath of the Wild. Because my favourite omelette is the Japanese Style オムライス, or omu-rice. It's a genius dish, where the egg is cooked so that it's firm on the outside and silky on the inside. This omelette parcel is then placed atop a bed of fried rice and sauce, before being split open so that it unfolds and reveals the beautifully cooked, glossy egg within. For this one, I fried prawns and peas with the rice, and added crab meat to the beaten egg before cooking. The sauce is made from a mixture of oyster sauce, vegetable stock, lemon, butter, honey, and cornstarch. Now them's good eats! #judgeshootsfood365 #feelingcrabby (ps, I've destroyed my sleep pattern 😩 I may never sleep again...) • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #zelda #omurice #オムライス #breathofthewild @nintendo #nintendo
Literal Fruit Pie 221/365 There's something just so perfect about cartoon food. All Link needs is some Tabantha Wheat, some Goat Butter, a bit of fruit and a pot over an open fire... and he can make a flawless fruit pie. Which appears to be a bloody great big pie crust, with whole fruit chucked on top. For @bingingwithbabish's #eatwhatyouwatch, I tried my best to recreate it exactly as it looks in-game, guessing at the fruit based on a few coloured pixels. For my money, the pie uses oranges, pears, blueberries, pineapple and... honestly something that looks most like pomegranates, but I settled on plums, because who in their right mind would stick a whole pomegranate on top of a pie?! C'mon Link, get it together. Chop up all of these fruits, with the exception of the orange, just use the peel, for both zest and pectin. Throw in a pan with sugar, and simmer until tender and no longer watery, before being let cool and set a little. Oh, and take out the orange peel! In the meantime, the shortcrust dough gets made and rests. When everything's ready, assemble and cook your giant pie! Then, fry some thick slices/halves of the fruit in butter and sugar to caramelise them. Top the pie with whipped cream, the fried fruit, and a sprig of mint to complete the look. Andrew, I tried to get a cross-section shot 'cause I know that shit is your jam, but between the filling not being set enough yet and the cream melting slightly from the pie that was still hot after 2 freaking hours(!)... it, uh, wasn't in a cooperative mood. #judgeshootsfood365 #somuchfruit (P.S., this photo is for the 9th. I haven't gone to bed tonight (last night?), because this goddamn pie took longer than expected at every step! On the plus side, the other day was my birthday, so, birthday pie! I literally ate a quarter of this before editing. Soooo good! 🤤 • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #creativelive #vzcomade #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife @nintendo #nintendo #zelda #breathofthewild #botw #fruitpie
Yeto's Soup 220/365 I just realised that the @bingingwithbabish #eatwhatyouwatch challenge to make a dish from Zelda didn't actually specify it had to be from Breath of the Wild... 🤔 So here's my recreation of Yeto's... ummm... medicinal soup, from Twilight Princess, which I freakin' loved. This healthful soup is made from Ordon Pumpkin, Ordon Goat's Cheese, and, ehh... the appetisingly named Reekfish. Of which, the eponymous chef made liberal use of its head. Serve in a glass bottle. #judgeshootsfood365 #nojustno (This photo was achieved only through the incredible patience and helpful suggestions of my friend John Jack Boylan. It was just one of those shoots that did not want to work, but he saw it through to the end, bless his cotton socks) • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #zelda #nintendo @nintendo #twilightprincess #soup #creative #inmykitchen
Cooking with Fire 219/365 So... I had gotten all fired up at the idea that I could cook some Zelda themed dishes this week for @bingingwithbabish's #eatwhatyouwatch ...but I think I brought a little too much fire, cause I just ended up with this Rock-Hard Food... I somehow even burnt the cream! Maybe I need a little more cooking practice. Or maybe I just needed different ingredients? 😜 In Breath of the Wild, if you try to cook just wood, you end up with this... "dish". But I think even Andrew wouldn't hold himself to that level of authenticity, so here's my version: Dissolve enough activated charcoal (that's the food-grade stuff, not the barbecue stuff!) in an egg white to make it pitch black, then whisk it till frothy before adding sugar and whisking into a stiff meringue. Scoop it out onto a paper-lined tray, and shape it roughly into a square. Dust it with extra activated charcoal powder for good measure. Cook low and slow in the oven until you've got a rock-hard meringue. Then break it up cleanly with a sharp knife and top with mint. And because what are meringues without cream, whip some together with more charcoal powder, and serve! Now, while perfectly edible, I had to use quite a bit of charcoal to get the desired shade of deep grey. And I'm not sure what the maximum dose for that stuff is... Another issue was that it doesn't fully dissolve, and so ends up making the dish quite gritty. Which, I suppose, is fairly authentic! But possibly a better alternative would be to use squid ink. Doesn't have quite the same poetry as using charcoal, but might make for a more palatable result. #judgeshootsfood365 #bingingwithlink • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #creativelive #vzcomade #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #zelda #botw #nintendo #breathofthewild @nintendo
You Look Good Enough To Eat 218/365 Edible flowers, like this Marigold, will forever be a novelty to me. I'm used to trying to plate food so that it looks beautiful, but these things do all the work themselves! #whpinthekitchen #judgeshootsfood365 #thatsmeoutofajob (P.S., Thanks for indulging my current thirst for these minimalist, high contrast shots this week. I've got a fun little challenge planned for the coming week to help shake things up a little 😘) • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #fineart #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #jj_still_life #tv_stilllife
The Wheat From The Chaff 217/365 Playing around some more with my ear of wheat. #whpinthekitchen It's incredible to think of the millennia of cultivation, generation after generation, that went into this. The technological breakthroughs, the advancements in agricultural techniques... all of them leading to that field of wheat growing just outside my door. We have more food being produced now than ever before in human history. Good thing too, because there are more people now than ever before as well. In the Irish language, the word for the famine that caused the population of this island to drop by half translates to "The Great Hunger". Billions of people live on this planet, and if it wasn't for simple grasses like these, billions would go hungry. #judgeshootsfood365 #foodforthought • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #creativelive #vzcomade #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #fineart #creative #lifeandthyme #wheat #agriculture #crops #jj_forum_1983
Cravings 214/365 Watching Game of Thrones the other night gave me serious Pie Envy. When that happens, there's only one thing to do. Puff pastry crust, with a chicken and bacon mornay sauce filling.

Risen 213/365 Like a Phoenix from the Flames. Or from the oven, at least. Just at the end of my estate (the suburban kind, not the lordship kind), there's a field. For most of the year I only vaguely even realise that it's there, slightly hidden from view as it is by a man-height wall at the end of our road. But at this time of year, tall dancing ears of wheat catch my eye, stunningly golden in the setting sun. Bread, pasta, pastry, sauces... I owe a great debt of gratitude to this humble grass. #judgeshootsfood365 #wheatthief • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #creativelive #vzcomade #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #hautecuisines #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #bread #wheat #crops #baking #inmykitchen #lifeandthyme #foodart
