This is the nominating and voting thread for a new feature we’re going to try on the CH Houston board - Dish of the Month. Here’s a link to the thread where this was discussed with a link to the feature as it’s done on the San Francisco Board.
Any Houston area hound can nominate a dish they’d like to explore and learn more about as other Houston hounds also try versions of the dish and share their experiences. Please list any nominations in CAPITAL LETTERS in the first line of your post. It can be a dish you’re already familiar with but just want to learn more about or it can be something entirely new to you.
You - any Houston area Hound - can vote for any of the nominated dishes just by clicking on the ‘like’ button on each post.
Only one nomination per post, please, but you can nominate as many dishes as you like. You can vote for as many dishes as you like.
You can offer some explanation of why you want to nominate a dish if you wish but it’s not necessary. Also you can comment on any dish you are voting for, but it’s not necessary.
As a new month approaches, a volunteer will have to step forward to coordinate the activities for that month. That person will have the responsibility of sampling a version of the dish (early in the month, not on the last day) and starting a thread to discuss the dish that others can contribute to.
Also we’re going to try allowing nominations of a Cuisine of the Month (COTM) and Restaurant of the Month (ROTM) as well. Please use those abbreviations. We will choose only one - Dish, Restaurant, OR Cuisine per month.
Anybody can play along but only by going out - this is not about home cooked meals.
Hopefully this feature will encourage more participation on this board and help us expand our knowledge of certain dishes or cuisines or share our experiences of a new restaurant or whatever.
This thread will be active until the end of 2015 so it will not be necessary to keep re-nominating dishes to be considered.
