Food fascinates me.
One of the things I find most interesting is how one ingredient can become many different things. Think potatoes which are chips, crisps, mash, jackets, wedges, skins etc.
Joe is not a big fish fan (aside from rainbow trout and salmon - expensive tastes much!). But that doesn't mean I don't serve it to him. Why?
a) tastes change and not liking something today doesn't mean that's fixed forever (in fact all the studies show the opposite).
b) I may find something that ticks his boxes
Tuesday night was just such a night. I had some left-over white fish and wanted it to be more appealing for Joe. So I made herby, cheesy, potato cakes and added the fish to them. Formed patties, baked in the oven and served. Both boys snarfed. They were arguing over who had had the most even though there were plenty left!
Unfortunately my beautifully presented patties suffered badly from being shoved into a too small pot overnight so they are not looking the best in the photo. Thermos came back empty though so Joe was obviously happy with his fish.
What reincarnation of food has worked for you?
