Dish of the Month – NOMINATIONS, July 2020

RainyRamone | Jun 20, 202007:00 AM     41

Once again, it’s nomination time here at Dish of the Month! It’s the Good Old Summertime, and seasonal specialties are popping up in the kitchen and on our tables. What’s it like in your neck of the woods? Is a great bounty of produce showing up at your local farmer’s market? Is your summer garden bursting with seasonal fruit, green beans, and zucchini? What dish shall we cook together to revel in the warmer months?

**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.

** Please Don’t Nominate Dishes that already have been Prior DOTM Dishes**
The Home Cooking DOTM series has been active since August 2012. Over that period, we’ve already cooked more than 90 different dishes, as listed on this index;
We want to avoid selecting a dish for July that is a repeat of a dish featured before, so please review the index before nominating a dish. You are invited to make any of the prior DOTMs and contribute to the existing threads for them at any time.

**How to Nominate or Second a Dish**
When you are ready to nominate a dish, or to second another’s nomination, please type the dish in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. Nominations are counted by how many times they are written in capitals, so if you’re discussing a dish without nominating, or after nominating, please type it in lower case. Each Hound may nominate as many dishes as he/she likes during the Nomination phase of our selection process.

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 the current Dish of the Month:
Nominations will be open until Thursday, June 25th, at 6pm PST / 9pm EST / 2am 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.
