Hello everyone! I have been musing about hosting a food event on my blog for quite sometime. I wanted to pick a theme that was different while being inspiring enough to challenge. And then, one day while was day dreaming in the warmth of the Indian winter, it came to me....
First of all, let me welcome you to FSK Café. Cafes and bistros are my favorite places. Their casual feel is inviting and the leisurely atmosphere enables such wonderful times and free flowing conversations. And ofcourse, they have simple yet fabuous food. So, that's the idea for my Cafe; a place to meet, eat, drink, laugh, share and enjoy.
Now, at the Cafe, as part of the meet, greet and share, I am hosting a bi-monthly food event - Same Notes, Many Highs. The idea is to use the same ingredient(s) to create atleast two dishes which present them in completely different lights. Ofcourse, the ingredient(s) must be the star(s) of the dishes. Simple eh?! :)
The theme for the inauguratory January event is - Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil.
The two dishes I created with these ingredients are - Homemade Margarita Pizza
and Caprese Canapés
They are both simple and in each's own way, very appealing. As comforting, satisfying and irresistable as the pizza is, the caprese canape is a delicate, sofisticated and smooth bite. The caprese sings the melody of freshness with each ingredient highlighted bare turale! And the margarita pizza is one of magical creations which bring together a beautiful harmony of cheese, tomato and herb, blending all the flavors togethers to create a fantastic bite.
It is interesting isn't it, that the same three ingredients can take you to either end of the flavor rainbow and deliver a pot of gold at both ends?!
I am so excited about the cafe and the event! So, I invite you to come to my cafe and join me in celebrating the versatility of these three simple ingredients this month. Here is what you have to do -
Create two dishes that showcase the ingredients of the month in two distinct flavor profiles (you can definitely make more than two!)
Write a post about the two dishes you created (in one post) anytime before the deadline (typically will be 15th of the month)
Link back to the announcement post and my blog in your write up. You can use the event announcement image as well.
Let me know about your dishes using the entry submit form (link on right) or by mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will do a round up post on your submissions, within a week or so of the deadline.
So, I look forward to hearing about all the fun you have experimenting with ingredients. I hope you will join my party and make it more fun!! The Cafe is now OPEN!!! :))
