LA Dish of the Month (Dec 2012) - Nominations

It's time to choose a Dish of the Month for Los Angeles for December 2012

The idea is this: choose a 'Dish of the Month' for the LA area and then collectively try as many versions of this dish as possible, reporting back with details and photos. It's great to talk about places you've been in the past, but the idea is to explore new places and make new discoveries.

The dish that gets chosen might be something very specific (minestrone soup, xiao long bao) but might also be more of a dish category (stuffed pasta dishes, Asian fried chicken). It's up to the users, but it probably makes sense to choose something that locals are excited about trying and finding the best versions! In SF, the dish of the month inspired a few Chowdowns so people could try the dish together....hopefully this can happen in LA too!

This is the nomination thread for December 2012…you can nominate as many dishes as you want, but once we do the voting thread (which will start on November 29), it will be one vote per user.

To nominate a dish, post it in ALL CAPS in the responses below. This thread will be open until November 28th.

Let the nominations begin!

Another note: If anyone in LA is interested in taking over this nomination/voting/counting process for Dish of the Month, I'd be happy to pass the reigns. Just shoot me an email (listed in my profile) and we can be in touch. Thanks!

                      If you don't see something you like on the current voting list, you can write it in and I'll add it to the candidate list.

                        Can we add CHOWDERS and FRENCH ONION SOUPS?

                          The nomination period is over, but if you'd like to write in a vote in the voting thread, that's fine. Then I'll add it to the list of things to vote for.....but you're going to have to choose only one of those! :)

                          If those don't make it for December, they both sound like great ideas for January, too!
