Paper Chef Update …and all things Paper Chef

Well, Ilva, over at the truly lovely blog Lucullian Delights, has decided to take on Paper Chef so that it doesn’t die out. I’m really happy because she has always been one of its biggest supporters (and one of the best entrants). This way my little monthly event will carry on.

For those of you coming over here from her blog or who have no idea what I’m talking about, below is a little potted history of Paper Chef.

Essentially it is a little event for food bloggers modeled loosely on the Iron Chef and on Ready, Steady Cook, the BBC cooking show. Food bloggers have a weekend to devise, make and write about some creation that uses the assigned four ingredients. For full details of how it works, see this post that includes the rules.

For some idea of what it comes out like, please see these two posts with links to many of the past events…

Thanks Ilva!


  1. Hooray for Ilva. I’m more of a watcher than a participant (mainly because my life is always so crazy I can’t manage to do many of the things sound like fun), but it’s such a great event.

  2. its great that Ilva is keeping this event alive! Owen, hope that gives you more tme to post about your “persimmon butter”:)
