Kitty Kaga Speaks! (WCB #21)
If my memory serves me right, this, the weekend of October 29th and 30th, holds a special dual significance. Not only do we don our festive attire and celebrate the birth of Kiri, beloved cat of Clare’s Eat Stuff, we also mark the launch of the internationally acclaimed Paper Chef Ingredient Nomination Week.
Ahhh, Paper Chef. It was nearly a year ago that one man’s fantasy became reality and this grand event of the food blogosphere came into being. From humble beginnings, Owen of Tomatilla has risen to the occasion time and time again to bring us this quintessential competition, where masterful chefs from all corners of the globe celebrate their creativity and their diversity in artistic dishes never tasted before. Each month, the secret ingredients are revealed, and each month, the illustrious winners are announced. Who can forget the majestic Cocoa-Pomegranate Roast Chicken with Eggplant Stuffing, the salacious Feta Soufflé with Walnuts, Dates and Feisty Greens, the mighty Po’ Boy?
So now, bloggers, show me the ingredients you so desire for the creation of your culinary masterpieces. Remember, you may only nominate once, so choose wisely. Let Paper Chef Ingredient Nomination Week begin!
Oh, and happy birthday, Kiri!
(Paper Chef ingredient nominations run today through Thursday. The four chosen ingredients will be posted Friday, November 4th at Noon, PST. Stay tuned for a complete list of nominated ingredients. Not eligible this time: duck, pears, ginger, & nut butter.)
