January 2016 Challenge, Slow Cooking - Page 11

post #301 of 320

Thank you everyone for the kind words, I am honored to be chosen in a month that had so very many great dishes submitted and what a topic for so many that are experiencing colder weather! @kaneohegirlinaz set a new bar for what it means to host this challenge! It was really great to see the level of participation that was had, a warm welcome to the new participants as well!

 

I was a little surprised by this.. so I am pondering what would be a fun challenge for February, @teamfat listed some great ideas, so I am going through those as well. With the long history the monthly challenge has had and so many great topics it's going to be tough! I will get something decided by this evening.

Been doing a lot of ingredients/techniques lately - perhaps a regional based challenge again?

Of course for the 'month of love' as mimi coined it, there is always love food like chocolate and oysters...'love food' perhaps? 💘

Besides Valentine's Day, February also has Mardi Gras, which could inspire the challange theme.

Mardi Gras would be interesting... Some Cajun-style sausage projects coming up ;)

Curious what eastshores will come up with.
I was thinking that fast food would be a nice follower of slow cooking (or left overs, or, or, or )

Red beans and rice was one thing I had planned for the January challenge, but never got around to making the pickle meat first.

Don't get me started. To make a burger, you first start the dough for the roll two days ahead. Fast food, indeed ;)

To bad it wasn't warmer, I would have slow smoked a chuck roast...

Yeah... thought about getting the smoker going myself, but with the outside temperatures and the horizontal snow/sleet/rain, temp control is kinda impossible at the moment

It was a good experience putting my food out there. SO much FUN! Congrats @eastshores. Wish there was tasto-vision. Maybe you could do some aphrodisiac food challenges or a dinner for two challenge! Cooking for two is a pain...very challenging! Lol

You guys haven't made this much easier! So many great ideas.. I'm trying to think of something original but I keep heading toward technique. I've got about 20 minutes left to decide this in my time zone. I hope I don't disappoint you all.

Biscuits sound good. You could also do dumplings or Irish soda bread. Yummy. I am getting hungry just thinking about it. What a great way to stay warm in cold weather.

Nate, I gotta ask ya, are these dishes that you're making at work to serve to customers or just us folk at ChefTalk?

Which ever, I'll take that!

<edit-I won't say that I live in Arizona and it was 75º the other day>

 

A little bit of both.  In my spare time I help out with my companies social media and online marketing, as well as develop cooking guides and how to's.  I wanted to make something slow cooked for this site and also be able to use it for work stuff as well, I made the Red Beans and Rice for a blog and facebook and stuff.  Below is the same dish I made but with a Mardi Gras theme and plating to it.  You guys, and this site have been a great inspiration.
