Last Day For Paper Chef Ingredient Nominations!

I have to travel for work so everything will happen a little early this week. Nominations close at midnight tonight and the final ingredients will be up shortly thereafter. So better get your skates on if you want to nominate an ingredient! Just post it in comments here!

The current ingredient list is:
Butter, asparagus, cured, aged ham (country not city), lemongrass, vinegar, sweet potatoes, marshmallows, dried chillies, sausage, dried fruit, berries, eggplant, summer squash, edible flowers, star anise, shrimp, scallops, cherries, peaches, wasabi, tomatoes, pears, fresh coconut, something you get from a neighbour’s garden.


  1. this may be my 2nd time joining, but i have a question: what if you can’t get the ingredient? e.g., lemongrass i can only get two hours away….

  2. You just do the best you can. You are allowed to substitute for almost any reason (can’t/won’t eat something, can’t get it, etc. Lemon verbena or lemon peel and mint would do for lemongrass – or even any old thing you can think of. Extra points for creativity in justifying your substitution!
