But I really liked the challenge and hope I can come up with an equally good theme for July.

 

At the moment I would say vegetarian cooking is the biggest trend here in Scandinavia.

Many of the Michelin starred resturants have vegetarian dishes as the signature dishes now days.

 

I loved to see so varied cooking, but one dish stood out for me and that was @Planethoff falafel.

Falafel is normally something I consider cheap junkfood I eat when I dont have time for real lunch, but those wraps looked really tasty!

 

Regarding July's challenge, how does summer food / vacation food sound?

 

Finally, thanks @morning glory for hosting!

 

Ps. If anyone want a recipie, Just send me a PM

You are welcome! I liked @Planethoff's Falafel too. Since his post where he said he had not been able to improve on pre-prepared, I've been trying to perfect my own home-made version! I used dried broad beans soaked overnight and then ground to a rough paste with spices. I think I'm getting there.:confused: I lived in Egypt for a year (many moons ago) so ate the real deal there! Re your theme, it sounds good but rather broad perhaps? Anyway, anything goes so it entirely up to you. I'm only thinking of you trying to judge it given that I've just been through that! :)

Congratulations JAH42! Very well done. The creme Ninon was beautiful. Thanks for the props on the falafel. It doesn't have to be fancy to be great as you were nice enough to point out.

Morning Glory. Thanks for being a great host. I think this challenge really threw the whole community a curve ball and that is great. I am also super glad that you didn't pick tofu.

I can only imagine the stories you have from living in Egypt. Wow. I would love to have an evening of cnversation with you.

I found it comes down to hydration with the falafel and I can't get enough of the moisture out of either fresh soaked or canned to get the outside crust and interior texture. If you figure it out please tell me. I will go through all my trials f you want

Thank you. Talking of tofu - here is a tofu dish I made not long ago in a bid to make tofu sexy!  :)

@Planethoff, re the falafel I have been using split dried broad beans soaked overnight (fava beans) then drained thoroughly and patted dry with kitchen paper then ground in a food chopper (without being cooked first). Spices: cumin, powdered coriander, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, garlic, salt. Tinned beans or chickpeas are definately too mushy.

Just wanted to thank @morning glory for the great topic and everyone for a job well done.
Y'all made this style of cooking and eating approachable and fun.
Have already tried a couple of dishes and while they were not beautiful every dish turned out pretty tasty.
