Dish of the Month Nominations - October 2018

MelMM | Sep 20, 201803:57 PM     58

It is time to start the nominations for our October, 2018 Dish of the Month. Cooler weather, football... what are you inspired to cook? Dish of the Month is a great way to explore a dish in depth and challenge yourself as a cook.

If you are new to Dish of the Month, here is how it works: You can nominate as many dishes as you’d like. Just be sure to put your nominations in ALL CAPS. There will be a nomination period, and then I’ll let you know that the voting thread has been put up, and we’ll vote on the top nominees.

We sometimes have confusion over 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. It doesn’t have to be terribly specific, but making it clear what ingredient you’d like, and what the preparation is (we all know what a soup or cake is, for instance) will make for the clearest nomination, and such a nomination is more likely to entice others to join you in nominating it. For some dishes, both the ingredients and the technique are implied, such as cassoulet or jambalaya.

Here is a list of past DOTMs: https://www.chowhound.com/post/links-... . We love having people add to these old threads, so if something you’d like to make has already been a Dish of the Month, I encourage you to add to the previous thread.

Nominations will close at 10 a.m. eastern daylight time on Wednesday, September 26. The voting thread will be posted shortly after nominations close, and voting will run until 10am EDT on September 30.
