April 2014 Challenge - South America - Page 9

post #241 of 251

Grilled chicken is one of my all time favorites.  May have to try that Venezuelan version of guacamole.

 

Too late to post an entry for this month's challenge, we'll see what May brings us.  An ingredient?  A region?  A technique?

Thread Starter 

Well this is the end. Thank you so much to all of you who participated, this thread is now full of great information regarding South American cooking. Bravo. 

 

I have to say that while reviewing all the submitted dishes they were a few close runner ups... I salivated in front of ordo's collection of steak pictures: those look like truly delicious!!! Or dhmcardoso's incredible oxtail & potato stew, not to mention @GeneMachine's Columbian grilled steak and potato dish. 

 

Our winner of the month is... Vic Cardenas! Vic, all of the dishes you submitted were inspiring and displayed techniques, colors, ingredients and recipes I was completely unaware of before this month. Thank you! :)

 

I look forward to see what you have in store for us for the month of May!

Wow, thank you so much for all the kind words and the win! Everybody put out excellent dishes and shared some great ideas. I learned quite a bit too and you can bet I'll be making some of these dishes from the other south american countries I might not have ever learned about otherwise. Looking back there were some amazing dishes!

 

@ordo got me to push myself with that Locro in the beginning. I'm still salivating over that! I'll take some time here to go over some of the dishes that were particularly striking to me...

 

 

ordo's steak. :).....

 

 

Perfect pizza... 

 

 

This is one of the best causa presentations I've ever seen...

 

 

 

 

 

 

@GeneMachine Everything looked soooooooo good!

 

 

 

 

 

 

@mise This picture made a huge impression with me...

 

 

@JayCobb1045 Who can forget this?! Best snack food ever!

 

 

Mmmmm... ceviche!!!

 

 

@dhmcardoso Sooo snackin!

 

 

 

Oh, and that caiparinha recipe... THANK YOU! The only time I've had one was when I stayed in Rio. Now, that changes everything!

 

As you can see, this thread was truly epic!

Some incredible dishes here this month.  I can't believe April came and went so quickly without even getting a chance to participate.  Granted I know nothing of south American cuisine except chimichuri but I've enjoyed seeing and learning about all your dishes.  Congrats Vic!
