Okay, so this is one of my favourite types of challenges and I do it myself and with chef friends a lot. It's your typical black box challenge. I will post a list of ingredients below, and you must come up with 2 courses minimum using all of the ingredients. (If you use most of the ingredients, you still qualify, but with less points.) The prize is, as usual, the esteem of your peers.
Here is a list of ingredients (to make this fun for everyone I have given you a choice of protein):
Choose one of: pork / elk / wild boar
Choose one of: fresh peas / favas / green beans
fresh chillies of any type
heavy cream or creme fraiche
Free items that may be used: evoo, butter, mustard, any dried or fresh spices/herbs, salt, pepper, flour, sugar, alcohol (for cooking or drinking), onion and garlic.
Let's see what we come up with!
In the interest of this being late, I think we'll run this through to August 8th.
