The theme for Cook with Us #2 :
Welcome to Cook with Us #2. We are stepping up the pressure for this week. Your challenge is to make a Three-Ingredient Dish. That's right, a dish with only three ingredients. Together we'll discover and learn from each other the beauty of using a minimal number of ingredients to create tasteful dishes.
With so few choices of ingredients, it will be critical to pick the right ones. You are free to add seasonings, spices and fats or oils to your dish as they will not count towards the three. Some great examples of three-ingredient dishes are a Caprese salad (tomato, mozzarella and basil), a simple apple tart (puff pastry, apples and apple compote) or Potato "Anna" or Pomme Anna (potatoes, thyme and garlic).
When you make a dish with many ingredients, it is easier to hide mistakes and inferior quality ingredients. This week, with only three ingredients to use, every ingredient will be key to obtaining a successful dish.
When sharing your three-ingredient dish with us, please try to explain any ingredients or methods that are unique to the dish. We really want to know the story behind your dish too or maybe how you ended picking the recipe or ingredients. Consider these or any other relevant ideas when making your post. The more we can share with each other, the more we can learn.
We wish you good luck and look forward to your creativity!
