Remember my post about The Tasting of the Rosés party? Where everyone brought a variety of rosé wine and a food pairing? Well, my contribution was Pigmentum Malbec 2010 and this delicious creamed corn empanada with orange-honey drizzle. Big hit! I highly recommend both.
I was invited by Kitchen Play to participate in a Progressive Dinner Party with five other food bloggers. This is not an invitation to be taken lightly. It could, in fact, send some cooks running out of the kitchen in a tizzy. Why? Well, we’re required to sign up to create a recipe for a course yet assigned, spotlighting a secret ingredient from an unnamed sponsor. Sure, why not? You know food bloggers…we’re fearless. Last week the sponsor was revealed. It was Dreamfields Pasta and my course was salad. I did the happy dance.
I think everyone loves edamame. They’re delicious, good for you and fun to eat in their unshelled natural state. All you need do is boil, drain and heavily salt them. Then ‘have at it.’ Bite/suck those gems of goodness out of their pods. That’s basically how I’ve been eating them. They only variation was occasionally tossing shelled beans in a salad or mixed with rice in some Asian-inspired dishes. Until today.
