SnackShots #1: Potato

This Post was written by Michelle from Greedy Gourmet

A brand new food blog photo event for a brand new year. The theme this month is the humble Potato.

Can you prepare fabulous french fries or make the world’s greatest gratin? How do you like your potato? Baked, roasted, saut√©ed, fried, steamed, boiled? What’s your favourite potato dish? Aloo gobi, Bubble and Squeak, Moussaka or Shepherd’s Pie?

Your photo doesn’t need to be of a recipe you made; it can be abstract too. Maybe you went to your local farmer’s market and couldn’t resist taking a photo of a mountain of freshly dug up tubers. Maybe you planted your own and want to show off your harvest. Have you come across those funny looking purple potatoes? The possibilities are endless.

Write about your unpretentious potato dish or experience if it takes your fancy.

Give it your best shot! ;-)

What Must I Do?

Take a photo of anything potato.

Pictures should be no more than 400px in length or width.

Only one photo per person or blog is allowed.

The deadline is on 4 February 2007.

Please send an email to michelleATgreedygourmetDOTcom and include the following:

  • Your name
  • The name and URL of your blog
  • The name of your dish OR a descriptive title of your photo
  • Which camera and lens you used
  • The permalink to your entry posting with a link to Snackshots’ entry details, i.e. this page.

If you don’t have a blog, you can still participate; just email us your entry with a photo attached.

Potato should be the main (50% or more) ingredient in your dish/photo.

What Happens After That?

A roundup of all entries will be posted a few days later. Readers will be able to vote for their favourite entry. A panel of judges will judge all entries and the winners will be announced soon after.
