I’m back with a new Platinum Chef Challenge. I took quite the hiatus once it came for my wedding, the holidays, post holiday weight-loss and feeling grumpy,. etc. The bad news is I can’t remember what number this is in the series. The good news is I now have a logo, and I’m going to change the rules a bit.
For the newbies, Platinum Chef Challenge started as an activity on a cooking message board to encourage members to create a meal out of 5 selected ingredients. You might think they go together, and you might not. You might have used them before, or maybe not. Maybe you will have a recipe in mind, and maybe you will create a new one. Most likely, you’ll put on your creative (chef’s) hat and whip out something new and exciting.
To play, just create a meal using the five given ingredients and blog about it. Please link back to this post, and feel free to include the event logo in your blog. The meal can consist of 1 or 2 dishes – so you can use all the ingredients in one recipe, or make two. Example: main dish + side, appetizer + main dish, main dish + dessert, etc. But, if more than one dish is created, each dish must use at least two of the ingredients (and, any ingredient may be repeated and used in both dishes if desired). You can add whatever other ingredients you like. Email the link to your blog entry to email@example.com. At the end of the event, I’ll compile all the entries and choose my favorite. I’ll then ask that person to dream up the next five ingredients.
Sound good? If you’re still reading, I’ll bet you’re dying to know what ingredients I have chosen. So here they are:
If you want to play, please email me your entries by March 10th. Happy Cooking!
