Cookbook Challenge 2011

A recap of how the Cookbook Challenge works:

There are 26 themes over 26 fortnights. The challenge is to interpret the given theme whatever way you wish and cook a dish (or dishes) from one of your cookbooks (or magazine) related to the theme. Cooking your dish for each week starts from the date listed and you should post the results of your dish on your blog by the following Saturday before the next fortnight begins if you can. We don’t mind if you miss the deadline, just try not to get too behind!

This year we have set up a forum for the Cookbook Challenge at http://community.jeroxie.com/groups/cookbook-challenge/. Please visit the site and join up as a member if you would like to participate in the challenge.

Each fortnight when you have posted up your recipe on your blog, visit the forum section and add your recipe link to the corresponding theme.

The 26 fortnightly themes are as follows:
Week 1 Saturday 1/01/2011 Stonefruit
Week 2 Saturday 15/01/2011 Citrus
Week 3 Saturday 29/01/2011 Rice/noodles

Good luck with all the cooking. I don't see a Heston theme, or a foam theme, did you forget those? 🙂

Hi April!

Just wanted to let you know that I love your blog and I'm joining in on the Cooking Challenge. Probably won't get a chance to post on the forum but will document what I make on my blog. Cheers and thanks for the inspiration!
