Challenge Recipes

Siopao (Asian Filled Buns)

Daring Bakers
February 2015

Hi, I’m Julie from One-Wall Kitchen, and I’ve been a Daring Baker since October 2007, but this is my first time hosting a challenge. Because we’re all likely to be coming off from baking holiday sweets for the past two months, I thought it would be nice to bake a very easy, simple, savory meal that you could potentially put together on a weekday night with the right prep. This month’s challenge is to bake siopao, a savory, filled bun using a no-knead bread recipe.

Hi, my name is Manal Obieda, known as Manal’s Bites. I am thrilled to be hosting the February 2015 Daring Cooks' Challenge and I hope you will enjoy the experience of making a delicious Middle Eastern breakfast with me. I became a member of this great group in 2013 and I'm so happy I joined. Every month, I look forward to new challenges, techniques and indeed new dishes representing many countries and cultures around the world. After all, this is what food is about, bringing people together, right?!

Esterhazy Torte

January 2015

Happy New Year 2015 my dear fellow Daring Bakers! I am Jelena from A Kingdom for a Cake, and I wish 2015 will bring you joy in and out of the kitchen!!

I thought that it would be appropriate to start this year with a celebration cake. The obvious choice was the Esterhazy cake a.k.a the Hungarian dream.

Oeufs à la Neige (snow eggs)

January 2015

Hi all, my name is Kim, and I blog over at Ask a Foodie. This is my first time to host with the Daring Cooks'. I have been a member since July 2012 and over that time I have had the opportunity to participate in several challenges, and always felt that if I were to host it would need to be something I was proficient in preparing, however, lovely Sawsan and Rachel encouraged me to take a leap of faith in my skills, in fact saying if it were something I had never prepared that it would show new cooks that it is possible to make what I am going to challenge you to make, you know, what?

Dutch sweet bread (Ontbijtkoek)

Hello, my name is Andrea and I have been a member of the Daring Kitchen since 2011. I first joined the Daring Kitchen because I wanted to learn new recipes and techniques. I have learned quite a few which ultimately have became favorites in our house.
This month's challenge is a favourite Dutch quick bread called ontbijtkoek (literally translated breakfast cake) or peperkoek (pepper cake).

Introduction: Hi! I'm Luisa from Rise of the Sourdough Preacher. I'm so excited for my first time at hosting a Daring Bakers Challenge. It was a very difficult task, but since my favorite challenges are those involving pastry skills my choice fell on the Paris-Brest.

Hi! I’m Korena from Korena in the Kitchen and I’m thrilled to be hosting a Daring Bakers’ Challenge for the second time. My favorite challenges are the ones where I get to bake a cake and/or pretend to be a pastry chef, so for this month’s challenge I chose a recipe for a classic European-style chocolate cake: the Austrian Sachertorte.

MOTHER SAUCES

Daring Cooks
September 2014

Hello! My name is Jenni and I have been a member of the Daring Kitchen since 2007. I first joined the Daring Kitchen because I loved how each month we learned new recipes from around the world; but we also learned new techniques that were important to being a cook.

If you happen to go to cooking school, glance through a cooking magazine or watch the Food Network, you will find that knowing how to make sauces is vitally important. Sauces have been used in cooking throughout history – from as far back as the Romans who would use sauces to completely disguise the taste of meat (and probably the freshness of the dish). Today, sauces are more refined, but still help to elevate and finish a meal by adding richness, flavor and moisture. Julia Child says in Mastering the Art of French Cooking “ sauces are the splendor and glory of cooking, yet there is nothing serious or mysterious about making them. These are indispensable to the home cook”.
