The thought of guessing ingredients in a dish was a bit daunting for me. Will my taste buds fail me?
We started of with Ellie’s entrée (Almost Bourdain) . She made a French Anchoïade. I have never had a dip quite like it. It was delicious on top of some French bread. In total I got 6 of the 7 ingredients right.
The next dish was one that my mum made. Thanks Mama Eugenio. She made a Pancit Canton which was really good. I sat back and watched everyone look at the Pancit and most of them did quite well.
Trissa’s dish was up next. I knew what it was as I got there early with my cousin Lia and saw the Pasta Machine on her bench top.. Her dish was ravioli with eggplant, walnuts, tallegio and a burnt butter sauce. In total I got 8 ingredients right. I can’t believe I left out the obvious which was balsamic. I was too busy enjoying the pasta.
When I saw Trisha (Sugarlace) preparing her dish I just knew what it was. It was a Filipino dish that I used to put in my sandwiches in high school. It is called Embutido. I got 8 out of the 12 ingredients right. Oh the shame.
Lorraine’s (Not Quite Nigella) dish came out and I thought wow.. I will not get any of these right. The only thing that caught my eye was the carrots. It’s called Blanquette de Veau. In total I got 2 out of the 8 ingredients.
It was now time for dessert. Betty’s (Betty's Bites) was up next. She was preparing the dessert when she mentioned that there were only 5 ingredients in this. The dessert was creamy with a toasty sort of flavour. I got 3 out of the 5 ingredients. I was happy with myself since I have never had it. She made an Indian dessert called Semiya Kheer.
The overall winner was Ellie. Congratulations Ellie. I hope you enjoy your prize.
Dissecting dishes is hard work. Trissa decided to serve the rest of the dishes. There wasTrissa's Berries with Cream Cheese, Leche Flan from my previous post, Matcha Tiramisu from Ellie and Fruit Salad from Trisha . There was also Bircher Muesli from Betty but unfortunately I forgot to take a photo.
It was such a great night. Trissa and Dan thanks again for having us. I can’t wait till the next Meet Up. I also wanted to say thanks for the Yummy Adrian Zumbo treats that we all got to take home.
