'This is my first Octopus preparation', I thought. Opening the package I saw this were two smaller Octopussy.

And they looked me in the eye. Strange feeling. Had to get my camera to show my ambivalence.

In the end I produced a very tasty yellow curry from them. Enjoy the pictures!

If you have mixed feelings viewing this it is intended, I had mixed feelings and tried to express this ambiguity...

I guess I will not eat octopus anymore. Brains and hearts and arms and eyes ... Alien with humanoid features, .....

Did you beat them up (the octopuses)? In my own experience, if you don't beat them (once dead of course), they are too rubber like in consistence when fried or even boiled (as in a curry) ! We have a lot of dishes with them in south of France, but the best would be the squid salad  8)

I have just re-read this thread from the beginning and have thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful, atmospheric and almost aromatic photographs.
They are far richer in colour, texture and the arrangement of the different ingredients than most of the food photography which we see.
Your description of the ingredients and the preparation of the various dishes is also fascinating.

I have eaten Octopus and much enjoyed it but I too would have found it hard to cook those creatures once they had looked me in the eye like yours did!
But, at that stage, what else could you do but proceed with the cooking ó but only  after you had taken their portraits?!!

Kalamari is a big dish in the Greek cuisine.  Popular here in Melbourne with our Greek community; also salted squid.

Jaques comment about the need to beat the flesh is most accurate - as is the rubbery nature of the flesh if you don't beat/tenderise the flesh before marianating and cooking.
