Minneapolis Dish of the Month (Oct 2012) - Nominations
The Dish of the Month has been going on a few different regional boards for a while now, and I'd like to test the waters to see if it could work for Minneapolis-St. Paul!
The idea is this: choose a 'Dish of the Month' for Minneapolis-St. Paul and then collectively try as many versions of this dish as possible, reporting back with details and photos. The project involves going out exploring and eating!
The dish that gets chosen might be something very specific (minestrone soup, pad thai) but might also be more of a dish category (stuffed pasta dishes, Asian fried chicken). It's up to the users on this board, but it probably makes sense to choose something that locals are excited about trying and finding the best versions!
I'm thinking that the criteria for choosing a dish should be that it's something readily available, but not too generic (i.e. pizza and tacos are perhaps too broad) and also affordable for most people (i.e. average cost of the single dish is less than $12)
So, any nominations for a good first Dish of the Month for Minneapolis. Are people game to try this out? Please don't be shy....this has proved to be a lot of fun in San Francisco (where i'm based), and I'm hoping it can continue to spread to other cities with strong Chowhound communities.
Here's a link to recent SF topics, for reference:
Nominations will be open until September 28, at which point the voting will begin!
Glad people are interested in trying this out! Remember, please write nominations in ALL CAPS so that they get counted.
I'll also nominate SPRING ROLLS and CHILI - I think both options could work great for this!
I nominate PUREED AUTUMN VEGETABLE SOUP - so, pumpkin, squash, celery root, parsnip, etc. There's lots out there.
