Welcome to Season 3 of Cook with Us!
Welcome to Season Three of Cook with Us. We are excited to welcome new people into our community this season, as well as catch up with our much-loved regular contributors. This season will last until early December. We will be on holiday for the rest of the month of December and then Season Four will start in January 2019.
This week’s challenge at CwU is to create a dish using root vegetables. The root vegetable should be the star or main item of your dish. There are so many root vegetables that you will have many options to work with. If you are unfamiliar with root vegetables here is a short list.
- Sweet Potato
- Celery Root
For an even larger list, Click Here for a comprehensive list of root vegetables.
You can make any kind of dish that you want with your root vegetables from sweet to savory. You may also use one root vegetable or as many varieties as you wish.
Don’t forget too that a great entry also includes a personal story about the dish or main ingredient. Background stories about a dish really bring it to life. It helps people to understand the dish from your point of view. When you get to learn about food in this way it becomes much more than just a dish and a list of ingredients.
Good luck this week! We look forward to reading your entries and learning a bit about food from you!
