Jennifer Jeffrey, whom I know very well, recently wrote an article about her love for cooking for others. And, not so whiz-bang excited to do the same for herself. And that’s, okay.
The way I see it, I’m going to give you the supreme pleasure of cooking for me! If you’re interested, come along and show me your best.
And what do you get in return? The warm knowledge that you made someone very happy. However, if you’re the best of the best? You win The River Cottage Meat Book supplied by the most special publishing company in the whole wide world, 10 Speed Press. I’ve had this book far longer than I was supposed to without saying something and have had the time to read through it. I love this book and not just because it says MEAT on the front of it. The darned thing is absolutely filled with solid technique and recipes and prose and, and and it’s pretty. He’s even got a section on Gravy! If you’re a fan of the gravy but can’t quite pull it together, this is your book.
The River Cottage Meat Book is Meathenge approved, and if you possess those mad skills, you’ll receive yours in a few weeks.
The rules are simple, cook me a dish, main or otherwise. Write it up, include a picture or 3 and email it to me at drbiggles at cyberbilly . com. All I ask is that it’s a fresh dish, not something you made last November. And guess what? Anyone can play. And you know what? I’m not going to use some damned confusing 3rd party web site to post entries, no ma’am. I’ll toss it in to a simple html document and make it easy to find & peruse.
You have until April 11th at 5:00pm Pacific Time to get your entries in. Sometime over the weekend, Meathenge Lab’s staff will offer up the 3 top entries and I will choose the winning dish. MMmmMmM, winning dish.
Get cooking, I’m hungry.
