A little more than a year ago a group of slow travel community members decided to participate in a weekly cooking experiment. We would all try the same recipe and then blog (or post in the slow travel food and drink forum for those who don't have blogs) about it on Sunday.
Then we started ladling soups - just in time for the return of cold weather. We didn't use a single cookbook for this, rather we all selected a tried and true recipe that we enjoyed. The soup making lasted five months! We never got bored nor did we have a recipe that made us go 'ewww'.
Throughout the spring and summer we tackled salads. Now one might think that salads might get a touch dull . . . believe it or not this was NEVER the case. In fact, we really looked forward to our weekly salad (in addition to all of the other salads we were tossing together). Some of the salads were substantial dinner salads whereas others were an accompaniment to other things.
The 18 salads were:
Eden's Foraging the City Salad
Black Bean Salad
Raw Asparagus, Pea, and Arugula Salad
Thai Chicken Salad
Grilled Tuna Nicoise Salad
Fajita Salad with Creamy Cilantro-Lime Dressing
Roasted Corn and Wild Rice Salad
Grilled Romaine Salad with Citrus Caesar Vinaigrette
Grilled Chicken Salad with Tarragon Pesto
Thai Beef Salad
Tropical Rice Salad
Southern Mustard Potato Salad
Thanks Eden, Judy, Amy, Debrah, Kim, Deborah, Jan, Cindy, Marcia, Candi, Nancy, Terry, Maria, Palma, Ida, and Sandi for a creative and delicious journey!
So what is next for the slowtravel chefs?
