Home Cooking Dish of the Month - NOMINATIONS, August 2019

herby | Jul 20, 201906:22 AM     58

Happy summer! Time has come to think about what you would like to make during the month of August and nominate a dish that we'll all enjoy cooking together in our virtual DOTM kitchen. So, what would it be?

While you ponder, please view the index to all the dishes we’ve previously covered:
https://www.chowhound.com/post/links-...
and read the starred guidelines below about what makes a dish.

You may nominate as many dishes as you like. To make sure your nomination is counted, put the name of the dish you are nominating in ALL CAPS. In the spirit of DOTM, push your envelopes, think of something you’ve always wanted to learn how to cook, a dish that will help you master a new technique, get acquainted with a new ingredient, or learn about a new cuisine.

Nominations will close on July 27th at 10am Eastern daytime.

***********************************
**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.
