Paper Chef is on! 24th Edition – Peas In The Middle East
Here we go:
the theme this month is ‘Peas in the Middle East’ – interpret that how you will peas/peace/middle eastern dishes, etc.
The four random ingredients are:
As usual substitute away for allergies/vegetarianism/inability to get ingredients.
ok this month I’m on, I have already come up with a couple of ideas!
I may be thick, but if I put prosciutto in a Middle Eastern dish, won’t war break out instead of peace? Is there more to this challenge than immediately meets the eye?
Ilva – glad to see you here!
Judith – there is always more to these than meets the eye! I can think of several ways around it – substitution of ingredients or theme or even an argument that blanket bans on pork haven’t worked for the last 2000 years so why not try something new?! Basically we get what we get in the random draw and then have to make it work – that’s really the heart of the challenge!
Hi there Owen. Congratulations again on an eclectic mix of theme ingredients. My entry War in Practice; aka Choko Maths.
I almost gave up after seeing Ilva’s stunning entry. The dish was going to be recycled into something else since Ilva also made a beautiful dessert, however there wasn’t time, so I just made minor changes 🙂
Noah’s Pudding with an Italian twist
It’ll be interesting to see what form Noah Pudding takes if people in other parts of the world search in their pantries for grains and dried fruits….
