The Next Throwdown is...


Best Answer The Hot Pepper, 01 January 2017 - 07:42 PM

We're doing Savory Chocolate. One composed dish, anything goes, no desserts, a cohesive meal with cocoa/cacao/chocolate as a main component or theme. A soup or app can be served if it includes chocolate only. Sides, not required to have chocolate.

 

Main component meaning it must not be hidden and must be a main part of seasoning, sauce, ingredient, etc.
Theme meaning you can carry the theme through the main and sides, sauces, breads, etc.

Savory meaning this is for dinner, it can be sweet but must be a part of a savory dish or be savory itself.

 

One meal
One poll

Simple

Fun!

I am not a huge chocolate fan, and plan to brew beer batches this weekend ... but D is thinking about entering in my stead, and she is formidable with chocolate ...

I will enjoy rooting from the sidelines on this one. Kids have a swim meet this weekend and I haven't found anything in dying to try. Hopefully I will see some dishes that will change that.

I am not a huge sweet chocolate fan, either. In fact, a number of peeps gave me chocolate candies for Christmas (maybe they think I need to gain some weight???) and I am giving it away. Mind you, I love one or two from time to time, but I much prefer non-chocolate if I'm going with sweets.

 

On the other hand, the key here is to separate "chocolate" from "sweet", which I know a lot of people have a hard time doing. The really high-percentage chocolate/cocoa is not sweet-tasting at all, and can actually be rather bitter. Also, I think another key is not to over-use the chocolate - a little can go a long way. I tend to see it as more of an enriching ingredient than anything else.

 

There again, maybe you've given this a try already and still don't care for it. Regardless, I'll be looking forward to seeing what D makes!

Yep - there's something special about a (tiny!) slice of chocolate cheesecake. But in case your tendencies not to fully read have kicked in, keep in mind the TD is for savory - no desserts.

     My vote is still for a bean TD. Winter seems like a good time to cook something that takes a long time on the stove or in the oven. Fill your stomach and heat your home at the same time!

Egg throw down would be cool.  Someone else mentioned potato throw down, which is a good idea.  Also believe a bacon TD would be epic.  

 

Vegetarian TD, Stuffed TD, Tropical Island/Hawaiian/Polynesian TD, Madagascar TD (brainstorming).

 

Also would like to see another 'chopped' style TD where 3 random ingredients are announced the day of along with PoL.
