Earlier this week I got the exciting news that I was one of six food bloggers chosen for the 2nd ever Foodie Fight Battle. The concept was put together by Dan at Macheesmo and Nick at TFIMB. After challenging each other to an Iron Chef style food blog battle, they enjoyed the process so much they formed FoodieFights.com to share the love. Now, each week, six bloggers will be chosen to battle it out, making any sort of dish based on the two secret ingredients chosen. Judging will ensue, fun will be had, and a victor will be crowned.
So without further ado, this week's secret ingredients are...
Coriander Seed and Rhubarb
As Dan mentioned, the obvious first question is: Savory or Sweet? I have gone over dozens of possible recipes on both the sweet and savory side and I think I have finally settled on a dish. I look forward to working things out this weekend and can't wait to share my results with you all.
Please come back on Tuesday (Happy Cinco de Mayo!) to vote!!! I have a feeling I will need all the votes I can get, I am paired with some pretty stiff competition. You should definitely take a few minutes and check out all of their sites, each one is unique and impressive and has me quite intimidated.
The Arugula Files
Crazy Monkey House
Elaine - The Gourmet Girl
The judges for this week's challenge include last week's winner Pete, of PeteBakes, and surprise judge Erin Zimmer, the editor of Serious Eats: New York. They'll be looking for, most importantly, which dish would they like to eat, overall creativity, and whether or not it is a good blog post. Hopefully I am able to deliver the goods.
Don't forget to come back on Tuesday to vote. I'll need your support.
