In the absence of HRH Jenn, the Leftover Queen, Sir Obi-Dharm Wannabe, with the blessings of the Jedi Council takes great pleasure in announcing the winners of the April Royal Foodie Joust! But first, a message from the Head of the Jedi Council:
Hmmmphh... Congratulate our Queen before winners we announce. Rejoice for her we must. Wedding going to have is she. Hmmmm... Famed Roberto also congratulate we must. Welcome him to our midst. Happy make the Queen he must or else our wrath he will feel.
Last month’s Joust was won by the estemeed Rebel Squadron Leader Bellini Valli. She thus had the privilege of choosing this challenge’s 3 ingredients and this is what she chose:
From the Sea (fish, scallops, clams, etc - anything from the sea actually!)
Lemon or lime
For those of you not familiar with this event – 3 ingredients are chosen by the previous month’s winner. All the contestants must use those 3 ingredients and any other ingredients to create a new dish.
I must say that we had some exceptionally creative entries and they all looked super delicious! I think ALL the entries were excellent but there can only be one winner...
Now for the winners:
In FIRST PLACE is.....Michelle (UsVFood) from Thursday Night Smackdown with her delectable entry of Coconut-Yellowtail Lollipops with a trio of spicy lime dipping sauces.
In SECOND PLACE we have....Ben (Arimou0) of Whats cooking with his fascinating entry of Royal Fish Empanadas and Coconut Rice.
And for THIRD PLACE... we have a TIE! They are
Aaron K of The Xocoatl Express with his Coconut-Lime Truffle
Toontz of Okara Mountain with her Island Ice Cream with Island Sugar
Both dont use any Seafood but have creatively and very interestingly used Ingredients From the Sea - one used Sea Salt while the other used Sea Salt AND Agar-Agar (gelatine from Seaweed).
Hosting the event this month was a lot of fun and I'd like to thank Jenn for trusting me enough to host on her behalf. It was indeed an honour!
If this kind of event interests you, then its time to stop by at the Leftover Queen and register yourself.
Afraid you are of joining, hmmmm? Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. Release your fears and join now. Do or do not. There is no try.......
