In this monthly series, I commit to cooking whatever is on the cover of Bon Appetit, Saveur or maybe some other food magazine. There’s a reason these particular dishes are on the cover – they’re usually the best recipes in the magazine.
I’m gonna lay some honesty on you guys. I’ve dreaded this post for weeks because I hate these photos. * I kind of blame *Bon Appetit for putting Chicken and Dumplings on the cover. Hello, plate of brown food. But, in the spirit of one of my New Year’s Resolutions for this blog being “keep working on my food photography,” I’m going to try to dissect what went wrong and figure out how I could have improved these photos. If you’re not interested in food photography, I would suggest you just skip straight to the recipe – it’s more delicious than these photos would let on.
