I've been chosen to create something for a festival contest. The winners dish will be featured in one of the small festival booths. There are approx. 60 booths with a variety of classic to crazy foods. They want something creative, easy, fast. I was thinking something along the lines of a deep fried monte cristo but maybe play around with it. Or maybe since it will be blistering hot something like a cold, fresh fruit 2 color gazpacho with some kind of flavoured cream. I need some ideas since everything seems to have been done before at this festival.
