My itch for cooking and photographing seem to have bitten me fully today, I just HAD TO MAKE SOMETHING or I would go mad...:-S
I bought half a dozen lamb cutlets before Christmas and never got to them as I was away in Koh Samui, then troubled by my right leg and depressed. As I also newly bought a cast iron grill pan that's worth close to RM 150 (for the sake of food styling...sigh...), I figured today would be a good day to make and photograph the lamb cutlets.
I just wanted something really (and I mean REALLY REALLY) easy to make and taste good as well. So back to the basics...salt and pepper, and finely crushed garlic, to marinate the lamb cutlets for about 2 hours. Nothing else was really needed as I bought the lamb cutlets really fresh (from Mr Ho's Fine Foods in Bangsar Shopping Center), all I needed was to taste the TRUE flavour of the meat. Grilled with 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil.
Turned out quite good really, though I really didn't have time to style and photography properly, as I am still not that mobile yet due to my right foot still in pain... Lighting details for above photo: Natural lighting through window from top of photo.

My main profession is a Cantonese-Mandarin-Malay-English conference interpreter/translator, need the money to finance my camera, lenses and recipe creation! My two interests, food and photography, have developed into my second profession, I'm now also a food photographer and culinary artist/food stylist. Sometimes I help my food company clients to develop recipes as well. Outside work, my greatest passion is traveling, visiting various countries on the globe has opened up my vision to a whole new world!
