Because I've decided to blog my way through this season of Next Food Network Star, I decided to do an accompanying post each week based on that week's blog/episode that will, ideally, be interactive either here or on Facebook.
So many of my friends and readers are foodies just like me who day dream about what it would be like to be on a show like that... what would we cook? What would we portray? What would our culinary point of view be?
So for our inaugural week I thought we could start with this first question/scenario...
Put yourself in the shoes of this season's contestants, only in this scenario you must create a dish for each restaurant in the challenge: Bobby Flay's Tasting Space, Giada DeLaurentiis' Blu, and Alton Brown's Do South - what dish would you come up with for each?
Here's what I would do for the first challenge:
Tasting Space (with Bobby's advice to "keep it simple"in mind) I would make my Olive Bread with Caramelized Onion and Gruyere Cheese.
For Blu, with its California clean flavours philosophy, I would do my Grilled Lemon Basil Jumbo Prawns (I'll be doing a how to video for this recipe soon).
And for Do South - which makes me think of upscale country comfort - I would serve my Baked Porkchops with Caramelized Onion and Apple Jus.
What might you serve and why?
My enquiring mind totally wants to know!
