Hello world of foodies and future Steemit Iron Chefs!

The wait is finally over...I am so excited to launch this new season of Steemit Iron Chef! We are already the 12th of January here on this corner of the world, meaning it's time to launch the first round of this year's SIC!

What is Steemit Iron Chef???

If you are new on the platform or reading about Steemit Iron Chef for the first time and you are interested to learn more on this amazing cooking contest, I invite you to discover the below 2 posts for a better understanding of the concept!

Season 2017
Season 2018

In a big picture, Steemit Iron Chef is a cooking contest where the contestants work on a product I select each week for them. On top of weekly prizes, the contestants are ranked on a league thanks to points that they get depending on their weekly results and they are eligible to get a share of the BIG REWARD POOL! This pool is actually the wallet of @steemit-ironchef, all post rewards/contribution/donations are saved there until the end of the league.

The reward shared last season was 1005 STEEM to 20 contestants!


I again encourage you to read the 2 posts I shared above to get to know more on SIC!
Ok without losing too much time, let me reveal the theme for this first round of the first act of Steemit Iron Chef 2018!

STEEMIT IRON CHEF 2018 Act 01 Round 01

The product for you to work on this week is...

OLIVE

What a great healthy product to kick start this new season! Knowing the level of our candidates, i am as usual sure that they will make magical entries based on olives!

Before anyone asks, let me clarify that you can use any varieties of olives, Red, green or black! Kalamata, Manzanilla, Picholine, Sevillano and the list goes on!

but what does the Act #01 mean?

This year, I have decided to have 3 parts of SIC which I named Act 1, Act 2 and Act 3!
Each Act will consist of 15 weeks/rounds and at the end of each act we will get a winner! The big reward pool will be distributed after every 15 rounds/weeks which is just great for everyone!

Thanks for clearing that up! I hope to have my first entry of the year in tonight!

@progressivechef

Hmmmmm.... Plump and succulent Kalamata olives, or firm zesty Manzanilla olives with lemon and herbs. It's a tough decision.

Does bread count as a dish? I love baking bread, so I could make some olive bread :)

Yes my friend, anything that we can eat which is made from the product of the week is counted! Please feel free to enter!

Then moment I’ve been waiting for! Hopefully I can find some in my city- never seen olives around here so wish me luck!

Hahaha! Despite the difficulty in sourcing the product, I am sure you will again surprise us with your wonderful entries!

Thank you @progressivechef- I hope so too!

Hi @progressivechef, hoping my entry isn't too late for olive week. It was a real struggle and I actually didn't really find olives as we know them, but sufficient to enter this week!
