Just lost a bet, ignominiously. The challenge was to cook a delicious three course meal for six hungry hounds for 18 pounds--I guess that's 26 US dollars. The only rule was that all ingredients had to be bought.
The winner spent £17.67--rigorously audited, of course--and made smoked haddock soup with aioli, vegetable curry with naan and aubergine and beetroot pickles, and apple pie. My efforts weren't even on the same field!
What do you guys reckon you could do within these sorts of constraints?
