July 2016 Cooking Challenge - On the grill - Page 6
ChefTalk.com Top Picks
When I look at the list of forums, I don't see "Cooking Challenges" on the front page. I think it should be there since I think it's one of the best parts of ChefTalk. Maybe it could be listed under "Cooking Discussions"? I look for them more often than anything else. Just an idea. Just now I was looking to see if there was a challenge of cooking lamb. I could look some more and find out but I think the challenges maybe should be on the front page of the forums(?) They are such a great part of this site.
(playing with your food is fun)
Take a gem squash, cut it in half and remove the pips.
(Cutting the squash in half was the hardest part. These things are tough)
One got filled with a cheese-mozarella mixture with oregano and garlic.
The other with spiced ground meat.
And then on an indirect fire on the braai
Meanwhile, you take some mushrooms and fill them with a wee bit of ground meat and wrap them in bacon
The gem squash took about an hour
And because I had some cheese left, I topped up the cheesy one
The mushroom were then added. Initially indirect and finished on direct fire
A pretty decent lunch !
Braised it with a bit of bourbon, pernod, black pepper, garlic,bay leaf, scallion and onion trimmings. Started the party with bacon lardons saute-ing the aromatics. Olive oil and salt then on the hottest fire I could build. The char adds a whole different flavor and texture. Plated a unique artisinal plate
I'd like to plate it with chicory and some citrus segments as a salad, but ya know citrus is not in season now, so it's just a drinking snack pairing

Lots of great looking food everyone.
For a quick dinner we made grilled chicken sandwiches.
Grilled chicken, bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomato, onion on a dutch crust roll.
Made these for a house party yesterday. Non traditional. I get BORED with your average spice rub. Salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, sugar. BORING
This one more savory and less sweet
5 hours no wrap. Before glazing it looks like this
Let the sauce set on the grill, cut them, then proceed to party
Lots of great entries for this challenge but there can only be one winner.
The rules of this months challenge was short and easy, the most mouth watering picture shall win.
