August 2020 DOTM: Nominations

herby | Jul 20, 202007:00 PM     44

Welcome to the nomination thread for the August dish of the month! Here, in the northern hemisphere where the majority of our participants live, we are entering the peak of summer bounty.
What dish is your goto for August? Is there a dish you always wanted to try when so many vegetables are at your disposal? I am getting a lot of beets in my CSA basket and was thinking of a cold beet soup I once had somewhere in Eastern Europe. A lot of kohlrabi too and not many ideas on what to do with it.

Please read the starred guidelines below about what makes a dish, type your nomination in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, and check the many dishes that we made over the years to make sure that your nomination is not for one of the previous DOTM at this link:

Nominate and support as many dishes as you like, there is no limit. Nominations will close on July 26th at 6pm Eastern daytime when we'll move on to voting.

**What Makes a Dish**
A dish is loosely defined as an ingredient and a method of preparation. So while chocolate is not a dish, chocolate mousse is a dish. It doesn’t have to be terribly specific, you don’t have to say “tomatoes chopped and simmered over low heat then puréed and poured into a bowl,” you can just nominate “tomato soup.” For some dishes, both the ingredients and the technique are implied, such as cassoulet or jambalaya.
