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.

Exciting News: Cook with Us will be on @aggroed's Radio Show on 10Jun2018

Tune in to @aggroed's MSP-Waves at 9 pm EDT on 10Jun2018. Cook with Us will be on the air. Please join us either as a listener or as a participant. We are hoping we can get some representation from the Winners' Circle to join the panel. If you're interested, please let us know by sending us a comment below or via Discord. More details to come in the next posts.
Please show your support for @aggroed by voting for him as a witness.

The theme for Cook with Us #14

Anything Wrapped

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!

Thanks for your beautiful entry @celestialcow!

Ach! @randomli and I were looking to make our first entry for CwU when it just so happens that we just made a kick-ass vegetarian shumai just yesterday!! Argh! We forgot to take pictures, too! >.<

Hopefully we would be able to cook up something wrapped before the deadline! Sorry I've been MIA, been dealing with a lot of personal stuff.

·

That would be awesome if you entered @jedau! There is still plenty of time. The deadline is Monday morning 8am EST. Thanks for stopping by!

·
·

We were supposed to go grocery shopping yesterday, but the typhoon and floods prevented us from heading out. Our hearts sank at the thought of missing out this week, especially since the number 14 is very special to us. Alas, the floods doesn't seem like they're going to die down anytime soon. We;ll just have to be ready for when Season 2 rolls in.

·
·
·

Well we look forward to seeing you then @jedau

·

Vegetarian and Vegan recipes are always welcome - you have until Monday - so plenty of time - we look forward to a recipe from you

·
·

Looks like we're missing this round because of the weather. It's a shame since 14 is very special to us. Oh well, we'll just be ready for Season 2.

·

How about lumpia =D?

·
·

That's what we were planning to do, tita :D Alas, the typhoon and subsequent flooding have prevented us to go make a grocery run. While we have enough provisions, we don't have any spare wraps >.< We were planning on doing a modern twist on lumpia, incorporating Mexican, Vietnamese.. oh wait! I think I'll save the surprise for a future round hahaha! We'll be ready for Season 2, that's for sure!

·
·
·

Glad you and Li are safe. Ok, Round 2 will be ready for you.

Cool! 😃
