PAPER CHEF 29 – The Roundup (?)
This is the smallest roundup I have ever made and I find it both funny and sad. Funny because it looks ridiculous with a roundup with only two entries of which one is my own and sad because I wonder if the Paper Chef is dead after all… I love the Paper Chef, so much so that I wanted to resurrect the event when Owen felt that he didn’t have the time to keep up with it but now I wonder if there is any meaning in keeping it going. The food blogging world has changed a lot since I started out 2,5 years ago (well almost 3 if I count my Swedish food blog), not only has the type of person who food blogs changed and why people blog about food, there are now so many different events that it seems that poor Paper Chef has become a relic of a past way of blogging. I will give Paper Chef one more month but if there are too few participants, I will let go of my old love…
But now over to the roundup!
Tammy of FOOD ON THE FOOD is participating for the first time (let’s hope it’s not the last). I like Tammy, not only does she make good food and keeps up a wonderful Friday feature where she blogs about her Italian family recipes, she is also funny in her own intelligent quirky way. Sometimes I read her posts and I feel envious, I wish I had written that. And she’s a nice person too. I do hope she has some flaws somewhere though, apart from her extramarital crush on The Farmer. OK OK, I’ll tell you about what she made for the PC: luscious Fava Bean Bruschetta with Prosciutto and Honey with Shaved Fennel Salad. Sounds good doesn’t it?
and then I made these Prosciutto Bakets with Rosemary and Honey Scented Fennel Cream Topped With Fava Beans.
Now Hank, over to you – it’s time for judging, I’m sorry for the scarcity of entries but at least you have two to choose from!
