Whatever-of-the-month Nomination (Jan-Feb 2016)

KALE - COOKED (I make a couple of super kale salads and I saute’ kale alone and with mushrooms but would like something more)

I’m nominating DUMPLINGS as a dish of the month because I got really excited about it when I saw it in the thread that inspired this nomination.

oh wait. let me move this to Cooking.

Although I voted for kale, can I also vote for dumplings?

This is just the nomination thread, right?


DUMPLINGS , still have not made pierogi.

Cuisine of the month, Chinese new year coming on the 7th Feb, to celebrate: NORTHERN CHINESE COOKING note DUMPLINGS is included in the northern cooking! (all the talk on Bao made me really want to make my own)

Northern Chinese cooking included: Beijing (including also Imperial court cuisine), Inner Mongolia and Shandong Cuisine.

This is nomination. You can nominate more than one, but you vote for one when it comes time to vote.

Errrmmm. Having never participated in a Something of the Month, what is this thread about, please?

I’m see that folk are nominating their various somethings.

Do I deduce that, in due course, one of the somethings will be picked and we’ll then cook the dish/cookbook/ingredient/cuisine/ whatever?

Its similar to DOTM/ COTM in Chowhound. But we haven’t quite reached a consensus whether people are interested in DOTM, COTM, or Cuisine of the month, or, seasonal ingredient of the month. so basically just letting the democratic process sort it out.

Is that kinda HUGE? :smile:


We have vast interests! Also there is a certain Peking duck I would like to do too…

It’s an easy thing to start with - lots of regional variations on the theme are possible.


STIR-FRY, so many possibilities, hopefully many useful suggestions.

I’ll say STIR-FRY also as I’ve never done much of it and this would inspire me.

I would vote for STIR FRY also . I need help on this . Mine just ends up tasting like greasy chalk .

I was going to ask if pierogi count as dumplings. I intend to try some this month.

I would say yes . Unleavened dough wrapped around a savory or sweet filling and cooked in boiling water .
