Roundup of entries for Paper Chef #5

Wow! It is rather hard to add up how many entries we have for the Paper Chef this time around. At least two blogs posted entries by more than one person and more than that entered more than one item. Fortunately, I don’t have to sort it all out – that’s up to Fatemeh of Gastronomie, the ‘winner’ last month. I put winner in quotation marks, because, of course, the real winners are all of us who get to see these wonderful creations. And I really mean wonderful – there are some absolutely stupendous entries this time. Plus we also have been spun tales of woe and bedevilment involving pets, work, drainage systems, the unfortunate tendency of seasons to be opposite in the Southern Hemisphere, island living and the lack of green garlic. And one entry is the first ever blog entry ever for that blog. Not the first ever Paper Chef entry (that’s true of several here), not the first ever blog event entry (also true of several) but the christening of a brand new blog! We are honored. I won’t tell you which entry goes with which slice of life – you’ll just have to read them all!

To recap, this month’s randomly chosen ingredients were: goat cheese, sherry vinegar (but substitutions were allowed for other high-end vinegars) and prosciutto. The ‘seasonal’ ingredient was green garlic (also, I am now told called spring garlic and young garlic and not available in the autumn of southern latitudes). In my defence, if you read the full instructions carefully, I did anticipate that last one and allowed any vaguely close approximation like spring onions or plain old garlic.

Without further ado, here are the nominations in no particular order. If I missed someone yell out loud and clear here and to my email owenl1998 at yahoo dot com…
