September 2014 Challenge - Rice - Page 6

post #151 of 166

I have been roped into doing another rijsttafel tonight.

Hopefully I can get the pictures up in time (should be possible with the time difference working in my favour)

 

I still wanted to do nasi and bami balls, lemper and a whole lot of other things, but just been too busy this month.

Lots of great entries.  I've been reviewing the posts and pictures. As always, the stalwart participants like Gene Machine, Chris Belgium, Butzy, Ordo, French Fries and Teamfat have provided plenty of great dishes. Jarmo, Hayden, MaryB, chefbuba, ChefTorres, FlavrioMoriera, Koukouvagia, AzFoodie, aplomb, eastshores, helloitslucas, MillionsKnives, petalsandcoco, and Pitufina, it was great to see your contributions as well.  I have my short list and hope to spread the winner's circle a little wider again. 

 

Thanks so much for your participation. I want to encourage members who just look at the challenges to participate. I'm just a humble home cook with a smartphone taking pictures of poor presentation. Share your dishes with us in the next challenge. To our lurkers, sign up and have some fun with us. 

 

Among the older generation of China is a greeting that would be translated as "Have you eaten?"  In a more literal translation, have you eaten (rice) as a meal. It's just a greeting, not an invitation to a meal. But cultural context of greeting with a reference to food pleases me.  Rice is a staple of the world. It's good plain but very versatile too.

 

Thanks for sharing your rice with me.

just found a really cool rice recipe...too late...

Yep, I was hoping to get a smoked tomato and proscuttio risotto done, as well as red beans and rice with home made pickle meat.  Oh well.

 

I know who I'd pick for the winner. Wonder if the next challenge will be related to the coming of fall in the northern hemisphere, like squash or braising? I mentioned chicken and rice, it could be a poultry challenge. We shall soon see.

No reason you can't still make a post about it on the site somewhere. I'm sure it will spark discussion.

I will participate in October, I just signed up. Just an IT guy with a dream of being a professional chef one day. :chef: 

 

Edit: Actually I have a picture of a rice dish I made a couple weeks ago. Forgive the caveman-ness of it but its a family favorite. Its a Cuban dish of which the name escapes me but I call it Cuban hamburger helper. White rice with hamburger meat and extra crispy french fries topped off with a runny egg.

 

Take notes on the professional presentation.. :D
