Challenge Recipes

Empanada Gallega

Daring Bakers
September 2012

Hi! My name is Patri from Asi Son Las Cosas, a DBer since 2009 (gee, how time flies!). When Lisa asked me to host this challenge, I made up my mind really quickly, because it is something I like to make, very versatile, and which would be a bit challenging when managing different flours. But first, let me tell you a little story…

My grandparents lived in a country house that my great-grandfather built a hundred years ago. It is in the northwest of Spain, right on top of Portugal, in the region called Galicia. Back in the 70s, the kitchen was the place of gathering, talking, reading… and there was always something cooking on the iron stove, be it a pot of caldo (a hearty soup), or a stew, or a cake in the oven.

Paella

Daring Cooks
September 2012

Hello dear fellows, I am Inma from la Galletika, I am really happy to be your host this month. I am a Mexican girl who loves food, I think that cooking or baking is the perfect excuse to be with your friends, family, with the people you love. Despite I am Mexican, I have been raised in a double culture, my mother is from Spain. Since I was a child, it was really a pleasure the smells and flavors coming from the kitchen. I am convinced that food evokes moments of our lives, most of all, happy times. Today I want to share one of those dishes that bring back home, Paella.

Paella is a Valencian rice dish that is originated in its modern form in the mid-19th century near lake Albufera, a lagoon in Valencia, on the east coast of Spain.

FILLED PATE A CHOUX SWANS

Daring Bakers
August 2012

Hi. My name is a Kat from The Bobwhites and I’m a delinquent blogger. I’m learning to farm, I love to bake, and I thrill to use stuff from my property to feed people. But I haven’t always been a baker…
I clearly remember Christmas of 1980. For one thing, I was so sick with chicken pox that I had to be carried down the stairs to open my Christmas stocking. I remember receiving a beautiful edition of Little Women with a fancy clear plastic overlay to protect the gorgeous artwork and my 90 pound Merriam Webster Dictionary. Both of these treasures were from my Grandma.

Cornmeal

Daring Cooks
August 2012

Hello, Daring Cooks! I'm Rachael from pizzarossa and have only been a member here since February but am totally in love with this place. My family are all brilliant cooks and, thanks to them, I grew up with a passion for good food but my passion for cooking, especially for trying new things and broadening my culinary horizons, came a little later in life. My obsession now is to try my hand at everything I had baulked at before, to learn as much as I can and to delve into every stage of "food" from recipe to mouth. I am truly honoured to be hosting this month's challenge and I hope everyone enjoys it!

Cornmeal, polenta, grits, ‪mielie-meal‬, bramata, fine, medium, coarse, yellow, white, quick, slow cooking...

Crazy for Crackers

Daring Bakers
July 2012

Hello everyone! My name is Dana McFarlane and I am thrilled to be your host for the month of July! I have not joined the world of blogging yet with the excuse that I am working on a cookbook to unveil my culinary interests all at once. It’s a slow going task but being part of the DB challenges for almost two years now has got me in the habit of documenting my dishes!

July’s challenge is all about crackers! Crackers are something I particularly like making because I find it an uncommon practice these days. Most people think I am crackers for going to the trouble but delight when given the opportunity to taste them. Making crackers also allows you to avoid the additives that make store bought crackers last for years and they make wonderful hostess and parting gifts.

Cooking "En Papillote"

Daring Cooks
July 2012

Hi! My name is Sarah from All Our Fingers in the Pie. I began blogging as a way to keep in touch with friends while I was on an extended vacation but I met a whole world of new friends.

My challenge to you is to cook ‘en papillote (pah-pee-YOHT)’. This is French for ‘in parchment’. In Italian it is called ‘al cartoccio’. This is a method of cooking in which the food is put into a folded pouch or parcel and then baked. The parcel is typically made from folded parchment paper, but other materials such as a paper bag or aluminum foil may be used.

Cannelloni

Daring Cooks
June 2012

Hello everyone! I am Manu from Manu’s Menu and have been a member of the Daring Kitchen for over a year now and LOVE it! I was born and brought up in Milan (Italy) by Sicilian parents and my passion for cooking can be traced back to my childhood, when I used to prepare meals with my parents. After moving to Australia in 2006 and becoming a mother of 2 beautiful daughters, I decided to create a blog to share my passion for cooking and to spread the concept of authentic Italian home cooking to the world. In fact, I often find that Italian cuisine outside of Italy is nothing like the original, so today I would like to challenge all of you to cook an Italian classic, the traditional way. I am very thrilled to be hosting this month’s challenge: Cannelloni.

Challah Back, Y'all!

Daring Bakers
May 2012

Hi there! I am Ruth from The Crafts of Mommyhood, and I am super excited to be hosting the Daring Bakers this month! I have been a member of the Daring Kitchen for about a year and a half, and I have learned so much so far. After my first few months I found myself wondering “What would I choose if I were going to host a challenge?” I soon realized there was something I wanted to share, and Lis was generous enough to give me the chance!

In almost all cultures, tradition and food go hand in hand. Growing up in a traditionally Jewish household, holidays and celebrations are always centered around the table. One of the most identifiable foods at the Jewish celebration table is the beautiful, braided bread – challah!

Messieurs-Dames: Boeuf Bourguignon!

Daring Cooks
May 2012

Hi, I’m Fabi from fabsfood and this month I’m honored to host the Daring Cook’s challenge. My choice, is the classic Boeuf Bourguignon, it is probably one of the most famous French Cuisine dishes. And among all the possible versions of it, the one I have chosen is Julia Child’s recipe, from her book “Mastering the art of french cooking”. Please pardon me if I say this book is almost a bible. Every time I read it to pick a recipe and follow her directions I feel myself full of respect and devotion for this incredible woman.

Boeuf Bourguignon (Beef Bourguignon in English) was born in Bourgogne (Burgundy), where beef and wine are its most important products. It’s a traditional Sunday’s dish, to share with the family.

Armenian Nazook & Nutmeg Cake

Daring Bakers
April 2012

Hi! My name is Jason, and I blog at DailyCandor.com. I’ve been participating in the Daring Bakers’ challenge since January of 2011, and have enjoyed each and every challenge. I am by no means a whiz in the kitchen, but I love baking and cooking, so every month I find myself learning something new and mastering a new skill and/or recipe. I am thrilled to be hosting this month!

As a child of immigrants to the US, I was raised eating things that look and sound alien to most Americans (dining on ghormeh sabzi for Thanksgiving, munching on choreg during the holidays, etc.).
