Happy holidays and welcome to the nomination thread for our first dish of the new year!
In December we’ve been making cheese balls, you can view our efforts and report on your own cheese balls here:
You can also view the index to all the dishes we’ve previously covered, and you are invited to contribute to those threads at any time.
How would you like to start your cooking in 2019? Will you make a food resolution? Perhaps to eat more healthy or clean? To learn about a new dish? To master a new technique? To discover a new ingredient? Whatever your cooking goals, let’s select a dish to cook together.
Please read the starred guidelines below about what makes a dish, and what dishes we’ve already done, and type your nomination in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. You may nominate as many dishes as you like. As usual, push your own envelopes, 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 close on December 27th at 10am Eastern daytime when we'll move on to the voting. In the voting round, everyone gets onlyone 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 four 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.
