Thanks to everyone for joining in the nomination process for November’s Dish of the Month (DOTM). Lots of interesting ideas, some bridesmaids that will have to remain bridesmaids for yet another month, and a few new ideas that I hope will get some traction soon. If you’d like to look at the nomination thread to see how we ended up winnowing it down, here it is: https://www.chowhound.com/post/home-c... I have to say, both these options are very appealing to me.
Wikipedia tells us that a gougère, in French cuisine, is a baked savory choux pastry made of choux dough mixed with cheese. There are many variants. The cheese is commonly grated Gruyère, Comté, or Emmentaler, but there are many variants using other cheeses or other ingredients.
And because I am the laziest of the DOTM ladies, I will also use Wikipedia to tell you that moqueca is a Brazilian recipe based on fish or shrimp, palm kernel oil, coconut milk, tomatoes, onions, garlic, lime and coriander. It is slowly cooked in a terra cotta casserole. Moqueca can be made with prawns or a mix of boneless fish species, like small shark, swordfish, etc
To vote, click on the heart at the lower right of the post below for the dish you wish to select. Please vote for only one dish. You can change your vote by clicking the heart again to "unlike" the post, then clicking the heart by your new choice. Please vote with the intention of cooking the dish and participating in our reporting thread in November (but do keep in mind that we love keeping these threads alive with later reports).
Please only comment after all the voting posts at the top so that we can keep them together (in other words, reply directly to this post, not to one of the nominees).
Voting will close on Thursday, October 31st at 4:00 pm eastern time.
If you’re new to Dish of the Month, a hearty welcome. If you’ve been lurking for a while, come out of the shadows and join us. Vote for a dish and join us in preparing and discussing that dish during the entire month of November and beyond.
