Here we are at nomination time for April DOTM. We've been on a soup kick lately, but I suspect that will change as we head into spring. Not that it has to. I, for one, love soup year 'round. What sounds good to you for April?
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 (ending at 10:00 am EDT on Saturday 3/27), and then I’ll let you know that the voting thread has been put up, and we’ll vote on the top nominees. On the last day of the month at closing time, we’ll have a winner!
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 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.
Here is a list of past DOTMs: https://www.chowhound.com/post/links-... We love having people add to these 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.
And remember, it isn't too late to join us in cooking our March DOTM, LAKSA.
