Challenge Recipes

Flipping Frying Patties!!!

Daring Cooks
February 2012

Hi it is Lisa and Audax and we are hosting this month's Daring Cooks' challenge we have chosen a basic kitchen recipe and a basic cooking technique which can be adapted to suit any ingredient that you have to hand and are beloved by children and adults alike … of course we are talking about patties.

Technically patties are flatten discs of ingredients held together by (added) binders (usually eggs, flour or breadcrumbs) usually coated in breadcrumbs (or flour) then fried (and sometime baked). Burgers, rissoles, croquettes, fritters, and rösti are types of patties as well.

Back to Basics: Scones (a/k/a Biscuits)

Daring Bakers
January 2012

Hi my name is Audax from Audax Artifex. Whenever I visit my sister and her family in S.E. Queensland Australia she always welcomes me with a fresh batch of my favourite baked treat which we devour gleefully with cups of tea while we chat and catch up with the events in our lives.

The treat that I'm talking about is the basic scone (also know as baking powder biscuits in North America) my sister really knows how to make them, they are wondrously light with soft sides and a lovely airy crumb – superb with jam and cream. This month I want the Daring Bakers' to share my delight and I invite you to bake a batch of scones to enjoy with friends and family.

Tamales

January 2012

Hi! **waves enthusiastically** My name is Maranda and I blog over at Jolts & Jollies.

I am a stay at home mommy to 2 kiddos and an Army Brat turned Army Wife. My husband and I met in El Paso, Texas, which is right on the border of Mexico and New Mexico. Needless to say, Mexican food is at your fingertips throughout the city and beyond.

I LOVE Mexican food. There is something about tacos, enchiladas, green chiles and tamales that really do it for me. When my husband and I moved to Upstate New York we found that our beloved Mexican food was hard to come by. We met a similar culinary devastation when we moved to the Middle of Nowhere Missouri as well.

Hi guys, I am Sara from Belly Rumbles, a little food blog from Sydney Australia. What an honour it is to be this month's host of the Daring Cooks' Challenge!

Sydney is a very multicultural city, and we are blessed with an amazing choice of cuisines and access to a wide range of ingredients and fresh produce. In our household we eat a lot of Asian cuisine. Yes Asian is a very wide term, and I generally cook Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Malaysian or my experimental versions based on one those.

Filipino Desserts - The Sans Rival & Bibingka

Daring Bakers
November 2011

My name is Catherine Enfield and I’ve been writing Munchie Musings for four years and a Daring Baker for about that long.

My background is that my mother was Filipina and my father is British. My mother came from the upper class in Manila and had servants. This meant that she really didn’t learn a lot of the Filipino recipes except for the basics: pancit, adobo, and lumpia. I’ve often wished she had shared more of her cultural cooking with me, but she simply wasn’t able to. Sadly this means that I often go into a Filipino restaurant, guess, and order the wrong thing. I am trying to learn more recipes and dishes on my own.

Cooking with Tea!

Daring Cooks
November 2011

Hi, I’m Sarah from Simply Cooked. I’ve been a daring cook and baker since 2009. I was living in the UK when I joined The Daring Kitchen, but since then I have moved to Hong Kong. Here in Hong Kong, tea is an important part of everyday life. It’s the standard drink at restaurants and usually comes free as soon as you sit down. There are dozens of varieties, each chosen for its health and taste properties. This month I want to challenge the Daring Cooks to cook with tea.

Povitica = Swirly Deliciousness!

Daring Bakers
October 2011

Hello! My name is Jenni, and I am The Gingered Whisk. I am so excited to be your host this month, and I really hope that you enjoy the challenge that I have prepared for you guys!

I was first introduced to Povitica from a friend of mine. We happened to be at the Farmer’s Market and when we passed a particular booth selling specialty breads, and she just went ecstatic. She and her family have been buying these loaves of bread every holiday season, and she was very excited to see them in the middle of the summer. I didn’t know what the excitement was about, but the loaves of bread were beautiful, and when sliced, had delicate circular designs on each slice.

Hi! I am Shelley from C Mom Cook, and I am super excited to bring you this month's challenge. I have been a member of the Daring Kitchen for almost two years now, and have learned so much from the experience. I am also glad to be able to have my twin sister and fellow Daring Cook, Ruth, from The Crafts of Mommyhood, to help me out. Despite being twins, we have very different personalities and cooking styles, not to mention different food preferences and dietary restrictions, so my hope is that we are presenting a challenge that will work for the majority of cooks, and that will be enjoyed by all!

Fresh, Fluffy, French!

Daring Bakers
September 2011

Hi! I’m Sarah of . . . . . well nowhere online really. I’m a Canadian non-blogger, currently living and baking in Warsaw, Poland. I initially wanted to share some of the (wonderful, delicious, incredible) baked goods from my new home with you, but unfortunately some of the major ingredients would not be available worldwide. So instead I decided to challenge us all to make the quintessential French pastry, croissants!

There are actually two kinds of croissants – Parisian and Viennese. My recipe came from Julia Child’s cookbook, so I assumed that they were the Parisian version. However...

STOCK TO SOUP TO CONSOMMÉ

September 2011

G'Day – (a stereotypical Australian greeting I don’t think I have personally ever used but I am Australian nonetheless) – my name is Peta from Peta Eats, I care about food, passionately, obsessively nearly hysterically at times (and don't get me started about margarine). I am pleased to bring you our latest challenge.

A long time ago in a far away (from most of you) place I jumped into Adult Education. I had always wanted to be a chef but this was not to be. I had worked for many years as a cook. Not the same thing at all. A chef is professionally trained. A cook hasn’t been formally trained .
When the opportunity came to apply I did and was accepted for a six month full time Commercial Cookery Certificate.
