I won't be directly involved (usually something like this I would offer to judge or participate) since Kathleen seems keen on doing this but the site staff in general is here to help out however we can.

You will be busy playing sous chef to Kathleen's Brilliance

I'm going to sit back and watch, assist where I can. Too many things going on for me right now to take on another project.

By Sous Chef you mean sitting back, taste testing and belching?

I like challenges don't get me wrong. If the theme was a little more opened up to the everyday / weekend warrior types, say " Cast Iron Challenge" Put your best CI / Dutch oven recipe up with a pic and recipe. Nothing costing more then $30.00 tops. Time set during the summer. Nobody freezes.. I know I'd participate as I'm sure a lot of others here that cook with CI will to.

I wish all the contestants good luck. Looking forward to seeing all the entries :)

Munky.
I PM'd the op of an idea like that. Maybe I'll PM you an idea and see what you think.

I understand your challenge and I like it, I was just trying to come up with something different. Some people seem to be interested and others don't want to make a 5 course meal. No reason we could not have different "Cook-Off" themed threads.

I like your idea and can't wait to see the entries!

I am really having fun with this. Thanks, GW, this is what I needed!

Oooohers, palate cleanser. *plots and plans) For me, it is soup, appetizer, pasta (if no salad), main, salad (if no pasta), dessert.

As long as there is a beginning, main, and end, let's leave that open to contestant's interpretation!

The other contest ideas are awesome. Perhaps for future contests? What lured me to this one was the theme. But I think we could do contests alllll year.

I am sitting aside, not because of the theme or number of courses, etc. but because of health/diet issues and work. I'm not going to fix something I cannot eat.

Dark chocolate only, no add ins. I'm still getting used to the new diet guidelines, trying to figure all the ins and outs.
