  1. I think your photography is fine – I find it really hard to photograph my dishes with my little samsung! Nice recipe though, I’ll be saving this one!

  2. Your fish casserole sounds great. Some meals are always way better than they look. It is impossible to get a good photo of some dishes.

  3. It kind of reminds of a Shepherd’s pie with fish. Have to try it out.

  4. A lovely fish casserole and once you´ve opened that wine…well, it would be rude not to have a few slurps!
