Home Cooking Dish of the Month - NOMINATIONS, March 2020

MelMM | Feb 20, 202012:33 PM     92

Time to set your crumpets down for a few minutes and nominate some dishes for March. The goal of DOTM is for us to make dishes that expand our boundaries as cooks, whether it be an unfamiliar cuisine, ingredient, or technique. So think about dishes that you don't normally make, or that you haven't perfected, and we can crack that proverbial nut as a group.

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 2/26, next Wednesday morning at 10:00 am eastern time), and then I’ll let you know that the voting thread has been put up, and we’ll vote on the top nominees.

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.

Finally, 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.

Nominations will close at 10:00 a.m. eastern time on Wednesday, February 26th. The voting thread will go up soon after.
