As 2010 draws to a close, I've decided to renew my previous two years' resolution for the coming year: have a culinary adventure at least once a month!
From cooking a regional cuisine - South African, Morrocan, or Hungarian - to creating an entire menu with a single ingredient - Ode to an Aubergine, pumpkin, pumpkin, and more pumpkin - I've had a lot of fun in the kitchen this year.
I don't have 2011 mapped out completely, but I do know that I will be planning a beer, cheese, and brats tasting dinner. I'm thinking about "And the Beet Goes On..." starting with borscht and ending with a chocolate-beet cake; everything in between those courses is a mystery. And it's been awhile since I've dusted off my fondue pots. If you have any suggestions, let me know. I'm game.
So, I hope you'll stay tuned in 2011. Happy holidays!
