Chilli con carne with crazy rice, yogurt and corn on the cob
When I make chilli con carne I like to serve it with wild rice (or crazy rice as my kids call it). They decant it from separate bowls but it looks slightly nicer than just slopped on a plate. That's sour cream and parsley as a garnish. I realise that food photography is a whole different thing to serving up meals for your family. The lighting is always poor at evening supper and I snap on my smart phone. I now understand why the great Elizabeth David insisted on only pencil sketches to illustrate her cookery despatches. I will no doubt go to hell mentioned the great Ms David in the same breathe as this meal attempt.
