Dish of the Month - December 2018 Nominations

RainyRamone | Nov 21, 201808:14 AM     52

Once again, it’s nomination time here at Dish of the Month! For many of us, December is a month brimming with festivities and celebration, but also a time for personal reflection, as another year draws to a close. What dish shall we cook together during the month of December? Are we in a party mood? Are we craving stick-to-your-ribs comfort food? Whatever tickles your fancy, join us in kick-starting the holiday season, and bidding a fond farewell to 2018 in splendid DOTM style!

If you are just discovering Dish of the Month, a warm welcome to you! Please join us, and take a look at the current reporting thread here:

Please review the starred guidelines below about what makes a dish, and what dishes we’ve already done. Remember to type your nomination in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. You may nominate as many dishes as you like. As usual, push your own envelope, think of something you’ve always wanted to learn how to cook, something that will help you master a new technique, get acquainted with a new ingredient, or learn about a new cuisine.

Nominations will be open until Sunday, November 25, at 6pm PST / 9pm EST / 12 midnight GMT. Due to the relatively short turn-around time, you are encouraged to get your nominations in early! After nominations close, we'll move on to voting. In the voting round, everyone only gets one vote, for one dish.

**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.

**Prior DOTM Dishes**

DOTM has been going strong for over six years now, and we have covered many different dishes! You can view the index of dishes here, and you are invited to make any of these dishes, and contribute to these threads at any time.
