I’m so happy to have won the Platinum Chef Challenge #9! Lisa from Lime in Coconut was so sweet to host the challenge. We’ve made it to the 10th round and hopefully we will have a bigger turnout this time! I’ve posted a 3-week deadline so get your kitchens ready. Please pass the challenge on to your friends and fellow bloggers. Keeping with the momentum from PCC9, I’ll send a prize to the winner!!
Here is a review of the rules (from the challenge’s creative leader, Cara of Cara’s Cravings ):
“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.”
To participate, please post your dishes on your blog (linking back to this post), and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight (PST) on Sunday, November 9th (extended to November 24th), with the following information:
Name of your dish(es) and your blog
Pictures you want in the Round-up
Link to the PCC10 post in your blog
(If you don’t have a blog, send recipes and photos in your email and I will include you in the PCC Round-up that way!)
Here are your five challenge ingredients:
Lentils (any variety you want)
Vinegar (any variety: balsamic, apple cider, red wine, etc)
Good luck and happy cooking!
