Welcome to my blog. My name is idevour. I am a professional graphic designer of some considerable period of time (relative to my years on the planet), amateur photographer and cooker of tasty things.
This blog is very much about the amateur bits of my life as I spend more than enough time doing the professional bits.
After much encouragement from some well acquainted folk and some not so well acquainted folk I thought it was time I got my butt into gear and start documenting my culinary journey properly.
This blog will be about all things food. I intend to photograph things cooked by myself and others as well as fresh and perhaps even some not so fresh ingredients along the way. Any other intentions I may have for this space will be born of the process itself.
I might even get better at this at some point.
Now to kick it off, here’s one I prepared earlier. Ceviche. The national dish of Peru and one of my favourite things to eat. Being a lover of seafood, a lover of healthy food, a lover of hot food… you get the picture… this is perfect.
The ingredients are bass fillet (we used ling)
Lime juice (from 4 limes – must be an acidic variety)
Orange juice (one orange)
1-2 chopped chillies
1 clove of crushed garlic
Half a Spanish onion cut into rings
1 tbs coriander
half a sweet potato – sliced
Corn on the cob (we left this out)
Slice the fish into 1cm thick strips then submerge in lime/orange juice with onion and chili stirred in. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until fish is opaque. Add in tomato and coriander. Serve with roasted sweet potato and corn.
The trick with this dish is that it isn’t cooked by heat. It is cooked by the citric acid so it’s important to have very acidic limes.
I do hope you’ll join me at the cyber table from time to time. 🙂
Buen apetito! xx
