Once again, it’s nomination time here at Dish of the Month! What dish shall we cook together during the month of April? We’ve had some close DOTM races recently, so now is the time to resurrect those popular nominations from months past, or bring new dishes into the spotlight.
If you are just discovering Dish of the Month, welcome! Please join us, and take a look at the current reporting thread here:
Please read 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 Saturday, March 24, at 9am PST / 12 noon EST / 4pm GMT. 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 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.
