Well, since St. Patrick's Day is coming up you might want to try corned beef and cabbage. Just a suggestion.

How about fish and chips? I'd love new ideas on it.

Corned beef and cabbage is awesome too! Joesfolks was posting when I did! :)

I am all about this cook together! Risotto is something I have always wanted to learn how to make.

BTAB, Risotto is a very easy dish to make... The thing to remember is the rice must be al dente, and it must spread on the platter... It's not as intimidating as some make it out to be...

Just looking for a single item such as fried chicken, chili, risotto, fries/chips, chowder, pizza. Single dish items that we can all try and post results of things that work and things that went wrong.

Post some ideas and we can make this happen!
I like the Fried Chicken theme for the cook-together. Could we seperate it into maybe three categories, such as fired chicken, oven fried chicken, and seasoned flour?

There are many herbs and spices that go well with chicken. There are Asian combinations like Chinese 5-spice, and a host of herbs to make everything from Tex-Mex to Southern to Cajun, etc. many people aren't familiar with creating or using spice blends. And though I know many, I know very little about say, India inspired flavors, or Morrocon. By playing with herb and spice blends with a particular meat, like chicken, we all have the chance to explore new and exciting flavor territories.

Didn't look at it that way, great point!!! It would be very interesting to see what other spices everyone adds to their flour to create their favorite fried chicken... You have got my creative juices going now...

What about a pasta (lasagne) or vegetable-based dish? I'm sure there are vegetarians on the list who might also wish to participate.

Somebody needs to be moderator of this thread and choose a theme by which everyone who wants to can participate. I vote for the op to host the cook-together.
