Thanks to all of you and your help, I was lucky enough to pass the first challenge in Project Food Blog and move on to round two. And the competition is wonderful and fierce: the posts I’ve seen so far for “The Classics,” in which we re-create an unfamiliar cuisine’s signature dish, have been fracking stellar.
Please vote now for me to move ahead once more here. The link goes to my post “Off to Iraq! Falafel Sandwich with Tahini Sauce,” in which chickpeas are soaked and September tomatoes from the garden make it into a street food wrap.
