It's a team-building exercise for work, so spouses aren't invited. We were talking about the possible "secret ingredient" and options for him to consider. They have 90 minutes to make an appetizer and entree.
I figured that the ingredient wouldn't be expensive, so therefore seasonal or supermarket cheap. My best guess was asparagus. My first thoughts were a chilled asparagus and pea soup with mint for the app, and an asparagus/wild mushroom risotto for main.
Have you ever been in one of these? What was the ingredient? Or, what would your guess be for the ingredient and what would you make? Take no longer than about 30 seconds after you choose your ingredient to decide on your dishes. The extent of the pantry is for you to decide.
