I've been happy with the other Lee Kum Kee products I've used, their premium soy sauce is a staple in my kitchen.
This is just pure gluttony! I like it. Very nice again!
Always great. Those salads look excellent! I like how you cook!
Alright, the time has come to pick May's winner!
This was a tough decision because of the quality of posts from a large range of participants this month but at the same time, going over the thread in it's entirety, there was a clear choice....
I could tell MK was dedicated and consistent throughout the entire month and really wanted it (in fact, I think he said that somewhere).
You won me over with your drive and passion for this month's challenge.
The chicken pretty much sealed the deal at the start of the month.
The chicken wings were a great first entry...
The ribs and the heart and that weird stuffed bacon weave thing at the end were all great.
The roast spiced-bourbon injected apricot.... let's say I was quite impressed with the creativity of the desert...
...were both solid players with outstanding dishes! Pat yourselves on the back for a job well done.
...were strong contenders throughout the entire month
...both had a few very impressive entries too!
But now the star of the show and the host of next month's challenge is @MillionsKnives
46 posts and a big chunk of them where in this challenge. You deserve it.
Without ado, I will quote a bunch of pics again...
This was indeed a good one! Hats off to Vic for hosting!
We'll see what June brings. Ideas I have are ingredients like eggs, fennel, rice, chilis; locations like Spain or India; techniques like braising or 'en croute' - so many choices, I'm sure @MillionsKnives will choose something to bring out our passion.
As I mentioned I was surprised that fish and shellfish were not better represented. I meant to do a cherry plank trout before the end, but that didn't work out. And beef brisket? So it goes. I figured we'd see a LOT of pork, fine by me, a favorite grilled item for me.
Just went through the picture gallery again - now I'm hungry!
Congratulations to MillionKnives and thanks to Vic for hosting. That was a well deserved victory! Also, starting out your ChefTalk carreer with a challenge win, nice one :)
@teamfat - I was originally planning to make some Steckerlfisch - fish on a stick, grilled over open fire with a thick spice crust, also a Bavarian thing, but I somehow didn't find the time this month. I'll make some one of these days and put it up in the dinner thread, I guess.
All in all, lots of good stuff this month. Looking forward to the next one.
Facing 2 surgeries eventually. Have to finish winding my way through all the conservative stuff they always want to try first. Carpal tunnel a second time on my right wrist because I bent the shift lever an inch with that hand. And a neck fusion, have a neck injection coming up on the 12th then see the neurosurgeon again end of the month.7 months of crippling pain have not been fun.
Congrats @MillionsKnives!! I love to see someone so enthusiastic about the challenge win it. In my mind it is the only true measure that we can go by, given that the "competition" is really against ourselves. Thank you @Vic Cardenas for hosting a fantastic challenge. Looking forward to June.
