Dine & Dish was on a little hiatus, because, well, time flies when you're eating fun and the end of summer seemed to blast right past me! But it's back, and it's time for the 5th installment.
In case it doesn't ring any bells, Dine & Dish is an online food blogger event in which bloggers take a month (or more or less depending on how cranky I am) to dine out. Then on a given day, everyone posts their experiences on their blogs, and shortly thereafter, a deliciously juicy dishing session of everyone's adventures gets posted here.
We've had four so far...For our inaugural D&D, all of us social butterflies landed at bars of all sorts to have a bite for Barfly. Our second helping was served up by the Queen of Cuisine, giving mad props to the women who run kitchens and restaurants like nobody's business. On our third go 'round, we hazed the Freshmen, restaurants that are less than a year old. And who will ever forget the fourth edition with our celebrity guest host, Sam, for Rachael Ray for a Day!?!
And now, I give you the theme for this month’s Dine & Dish...
In Novemeber we'll be eating a lot of heavy holiday foods (at least in the US) - roasted meats, root vegetables, butter, cream, herbs...so why not give ourselves a little break and go out to eat at an Asian restaurant?
It doesn't matter if it's that Chinese dive on the corner, Japanese izakaya, Thai, or Vietnamese; I'd even challenge us to try something slightly off the eaten path...Burmese? How about Cambodian? Extra points for you if you find an Asian cuisine that no one else tries!
There are no hard and fast rules here – just fun and food, but just in case there is someone who likes to have guidelines:
1. Interpret the theme as you wish – ASIAN PERSUASION
2. Go eat any time betwixt now and Tuesday, December 6, 2005 (I know, it's not that much time, but hey, all the better reason to go out NOW before all Holiday Hell breaks loose!)
3. Write about it on your blog anytime on or before the 6th.
4. Email me the link
5. I will put a nice, neat little summary of all the experiences, linking out to everyone else's posts on Wednesday, December 7th (or a teeny bit later if I get lazy).
Now, let's all give in to the Asian Persuasion!
