Welcome to the nomination thread for April 2020 Dish of the Month!
How things have changed in just a few short days. This new reality has settled in quickly and as social distancing becomes our normal these threads become even more important. Let’s keep them going strong and enjoy our virtual communal kitchen.
If you’re new here, or if you just want a refresher, please read the **starred** note at the end of this post about what constitutes a dish.
While you continue to make samosas, please stop by here to suggest a dish to cook in April. In the spirit of DOTM, please always consider expanding and enhancing your cooking experiences. What have you always wanted to try making? What dishes utilize a technique you’d like to learn? Be courageous! Be adventuresome! That’s what DOTM is all about.
Have a look at the master list to see which dishes we cooked over the years - https://www.chowhound.com/post/links-....
Everyone is invited to join in. If you’re new here, or you’ve been lurking, please jump right in! Nominate a dish, ask questions, feel welcome!
To nominate a dish, please type it in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. If you want to second a nomination someone else made, please also type that dish in all caps. We will be counting all dishes entered in capitals. So if you want to discuss a dish that you’ve already nominated, type it’s name in lower case after your initial entry. You can nominate as many dishes as you like. Nominations will be open until 6pm EDT on Thursday, March 26th. Once the nominations are tallied, we’ll move on to the voting round, where each person has one vote.
**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.
