Thanks to @MidwesternerTT for pulling the list of recent DOTM nominees. That reminds me to nominate
SWEET YEASTED BREADS (I used to make a mean panettone before I was gluten-free, and I’d like to figure out how to do it now).
I do think we should consider more narrow dishes than you may have had before. With a quarter to make them , and the folks coming over from CH, I think you’ll see a lot more cooking, and we can be pretty specific about it. Also, I don’t think a dish having been including in a previous category that was more broad should exclude it from consideration. On CH, we had “savory hand pies” and later had “empanadas,” which definitely would have been included in the former dish. There are many more examples of this. So this is why I am nominating sfiha/fatayer even though they would have been included in hand pies.
Are all fatayer small?
I’m asking because I think of fatayer as Lebanese spinach pie, and spanakopita/ banitsa/ spinach burek come in handpie size, as well as larger formats.
BCOTQ - there used to be one, I hope they love it over
Dish of the month would have a baked item every so often and it was great fun to have all the bakers join in — those were prolific months!
I’ve had them small (app size - 2-3”) and medium (lunch size if you add a salad - plus one more - say 4”?)
I don’t claim to be an expert, but I have only seem them as small, individual-serving pies.
Was just on the Chowhound site and it looks like the closing date has been moved to March 28th.
Yes, it has, but I’m still trying to pull content and the site is being very, very difficult. Lots of errors loading pages, long waits for a page to load (if it ever does), and pages loading incompletely. It’s pretty frustrating.
Drove me nuts this morning.
I’ve been unsuccessful getting into CH site at all this weekend. I’ve now just deleted that bookmark.
If there’s anything you want to access, now is an opportune time, because the site is moving much more like normal for me at the moment, but I don’t know how long that will last.
Also nominate RICE PUDDING.
I’ve been getting a “403 Forbidden” error trying to connect over wifi to chowhound for 3 days. I can connect via cellular so it looks like my ISP has just blocked chowhound. Frustrating as I had a couple more things I wanted to copy but have now just given up.
SWEET YEASTED BREADS
And a full sentence too.
I’d go for
SFIHA / FATAYER / MIDDLE EASTERN HAND PIES
PANISSE / PANELLE / CHICKPEA “FRIES”
I nominate HOT DOG / CHORIPAN / SONORAN HOT DOG
+2 on @Phoenikia
BBQ season is coming up so
