Hard to believe that the year is ending in a few short days and the new one is beginning! Please take a few minutes away from the holiday business and nominate a dish that we'll want to cook and eat in January.
If you are just finding the Dish of the Month, 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.
Please 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 be open until December 27th at 6pm Eastern standard time. 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.
