Get ready for a week of Easter preparations!   An ambitious foodblogger is taking us on a tour.  The blog is set to start this Sunday, March 20, and take us through Easter Sunday.  Here, to whet your appetite and curiosity, is a teaser photo:

Given that it is Easter I think the photo is baccala. Franci? Unless she is too busy with her amazing cakes.

It looks sorta like salt cod but a bit more ragged around the edges than the stuff I have seen sold in stores.

I agree, they do look like smaller, flatter fish than cod but it's hard to get a sense of scale :D without anything else in the picture.

I like ElainaA's guess.

It's not me!  But of course I was very excited when I saw that photo.

 

Looking forward to it, whomever it is.

Well, a search did identify another place on eGullet where that fish photo appears, but using a search engine instead of my brain to solve a puzzle seems like cheating, doesn't it?

All is fair in love, war and foodblogs!  Spit it out.

Right on!  Sorry @Smithy.   Has been done this way exactly before.  Perhaps the only way around it is to ask the blogger for a new photograph that has never appeared on eG. Can't wait for the blog to start.

Oh, I'm so sorry that I didn't see your post, Smithy, until I hit "submit".  I must have been going back to the original thread to make the link.

Congratulatons on your sleuthing, blue_dolphin. I figured Kerry would be the first to find the original home of the image - she seems very adept at that.

 

I agree with Anna that perhaps a picture that has never appeared here before (but related to previous posts by the blogger to be) may be a better way to keep the excitement going for a while longer but this was, though short lived, fun nonetheless.

 

Eagerly awaiting the Sunday start of this new 'mystery' blog. It is bound to be fantastic! :)

 

(edit: to remove someone's name as it appears that may not be the correct 'answer' after all)

I'm not sure I follow you.  Are you asking whether the blogger has been identified?  If so, I'm not answering that question...

 

...yet...

 

...but I am offering up more of the promised teaser photos.
