Home Cooking Dish of the Month - September 2021 Nominations

MelMM | Aug 20, 202108:41 AM     115

Time to start looking for a new dish to cook for September! We can celebrate the transition to a new season (although nothing will change down here in the hot and humid south for at least another month). The good news down here is that a lot of summer veg get a second wind in September, and up north the first harvest should still be going strong. Participation has been lower than normal this summer, so let's put our heads together and come up with a dish that works for most of us and will draw in some new participants or bring back the lost or strayed.

Please remember to read the starred guidelines below about what makes a dish, type your nomination in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, and check the DOTMs from previous years to make sure there’s no overlap using this link:

Nominate and support as many dishes as you like, there is no limit. Nominations will close on August 28th at 10am EDT, then we'll move on to voting.

**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.
