Welcome to Cook with Us #14!
It's hard to believe we are now on Week #14 of Cook with Us, the end of Season 1. What a wonderful and creative bunch we've had thus far! We know a lot of time, energy, planning and money have been put into every entry and we truly appreciate it. Our hope is that you have widened your knowledge of food and cooking techniques as we have and made new friends along the way. And even though this is the end of the first season, if you are new to Cook with Us and would like to join, please know that it's never too late. Hop in and join the fun!
There will be a 3-week break before we open up Season 2. The Cook with Us team - @chefsteve, @pandamama and @offoodandart - will be working behind the scenes during this break to plan Season 2, so watch for our future newsletters. Also check us out on Discord (scroll down for more info on the Cook with Us Discord channel) to see what else is happening within the community.

The theme for Cook with Us #14
No Mystery Theme this Week
We are wrapping up the first season of CwU and so it occurred to us that wrapped foods is the perfect theme this week. This week you must make a food that has some kind of wrapper around it. This food can be anything that you want from a savory food to a dessert or snack food.
Do you need some examples of wrapped foods? How about dumplings, crêpes, lumpia, pigs-in-a-blanket, ravioli, cabbage rolls, maki rolls, burritos, spring rolls, samosas, cannelloni, roti, pate en croute, fu pei guen (stuffed beancurd skin), beef Wellington, empanadas … As you can see, everyone around the world likes to eat wrapped foods! We want to see what your favorite wrapped food is and we always love to know any stories about this food that you think are interesting.
For this round, we decided to not have a mystery theme as the options for wrapped foods is wide open ... anything from all meat to vegan dishes. Good luck and we look forward to seeing your wrapped creations!
