I was completely surprised & thrilled when Kate from Paved With Good Intentions awarded me the winner of the last Platinum Chef Challenge! as the winner I get to host this PCC. am sorry its taken so long to get on to it, truthfully as its my first time winning & hosting an event I've been really nervous, but have finally got around to it. I've gone for ingredients that are hopefully available all over & I'm looking forward to the dishes eveyone makes with them.
my five challenge ingredients are as follows!
Onions- brown, red, spring onions, white, it's your choice
Apricots- fresh (if you can) but canned or dried are fine
Cream- thickened cream, sour cream, whatever you use or have available
Nuts- as I'm not sure whats exactly around at this time world wide I'm leaving the actual type of nuts open. walnuts, peanuts, cashews, hazelnuts, whatever
Butternut pumpkin- or a pumpkin/squash you have available in your area
To take part please make either one or two dishes that include the above ingredients. you can use all the 5 ingredients in one dish or make 2, example dinner & a dessert! if more than one dish is made at least 2 of the challenge ingredients must be used in each dish. you can repeat an ingredient in each dish.
