I'm breaking my vows.
2 years ago, I set myself the challenge to not wear pants (weird, I know) and have been going strong up till today. That's right, even before Kanye West's Rosewood fashion initiative, I've aimed to bring back the art of dressing.
For today though, I'll be taking a temporary break. To don a pair of pants so I can explore the kitchens of BLD!
It all started out with their weekly Tweet a Dish contest. Everyone is invited to submit dish ideas for their Thursday night dinner via Twitter to Chef Diana (BLDchfD) where she then chooses a dish and recreates it. Best part? The idea-originator gets a free meal for him/her and a guest!
So, I submitted my recipe for a turmeric and ginger fish taco with a jicama slaw (recipe here—and if you don't mind, vote for me? Pretty please?) and much to much surprise and delight—got chosen as this week's winner!
Best part? Chef Diana will be reinterpreting my dish with her twist and I've been invited to the depths of the famed BLD kitchen to help prep and observe what it takes in the creation and execution of a restaurant worthy dish.
If you are without dinner plans tonight, I'll love to see you at BLD and cook you a plate of delicious fish tacos!
And now, onward to the giveaway! If you're a bacon fan, I've 10 bacon greeting cards to give to a lucky winner! I'd wax poetry about it, but I'll let the photos speak for themselves instead :)
The rules? All you have to do is visit Alaska Fish Taco's contest page and vote for my recipe: Turmeric and Ginger Dusted Alaskan Cod Tacos and leave a comment with your contact email. Simple.
An extra entry will be given if you follow Gastrophoria on Twitter—please make sure to make note of it in your comment.
At 11pm Pacific Time next Monday (3/14), I'll draw a name randomly and contact the winner to get mailing info. Spread the word, don't delay and best of luck!
