Afternoon Delight, When it’s Right, it’s Right

Everything’s a little clearer in the light of day, an afternoon film recipe

I was rewatching Anchorman for the umpteenth time, and I was reminded that I’d not yet written up my recipe page for Afternoon Delight. I’d made this Classic Negative recipe back in the early summer, looking for a great partner in the long afternoons and evenings.

I have several warm Classic Negative film recipes already, and for this one, I wanted a natural balance for maximum flexibility. Something unique, but not as warm as Goldeneye or as rich as Grizzly Bear.

It’s a very usable recipe, working well in sunny or cloudy conditions, and in the golden hour. So, despite it’s summer origins, it’s an all-year recipe.

It’s also the fourth in my occasional series of recipes named like song titles, joining Ruby Tuesday, Parklife and Karmachroma.
