Introducing 1-Dish-1-Week Challenge. I like to call it the chinese whispers of cooking (as of about ten minutes ago).
There is something about cooking with something you've grown, or rather, what your Granny grew and gifted to you... I also believe in happy coincidences, which is why when I glimpsed Matt Inwood's Lemon and Chive Blossom risotto on Instagram, and later that day conveniently discovered that my Granny was in fact growing her very own Chive Blossoms, I literally, had to.
Casually browsing through my newsfeed this morning, as one does, when I happened across Tasting' Table's Jonathan Sawyer's Strangolopreti alla Trentina, titled, Jonathan Sawyer's Oozy Cheese Dumplings. Stunning cinematography, beautiful ingredients, straight forward, honest, and that jazz (meant to shazam that...). Believe it or not (please don't judge me) that was not what sold me. It was about a third of the way through the video when he whips a baguette out of nowhere, cracks it in half across his knee, and while grating it speaks the line "it's one of those dishes where yesterday's treasures become today's treasures". Yup. Sold.
