October Pot Luck!

Oh, yes ... we all love a Potluck around here!
Pot Luck Badge

And, what's not to love, when Potluck means not only do you get to choose the recipe, but you also get to choose the chef.

That's right, choose any Diana Henry recipe you like, or if you prefer take the opportunity to revisit any one of our previous nine IHCC chefs:

Nigella Lawson
Mark Bittman
Giada de Laurentiis
Jamie Oliver
Tessa Kiros
Rick Bayless
Madjur Jaffrey
Yotam Ottolenghi
Donna Hay
Nigel Slater

That makes for a veritable smorgasbord of English, American, Italian, Mediterranean, Mexican, Indian, Middle Eastern and "modern Australian" recipes to choose from.

To join in just post and link your October Potluck dish from any one of our IHCC chefs by Sunday 26 October.  Please remember to link a thumbnail image and leave a comment after you link so that we don't miss out on your dish.

In other news ...
Starting next month we will be introducing a new theme, on a regular basis - a monthly Mystery Box Madness Challenge.  Each month you will be presented with a new mystery box of special ingredients.  Your challenge, should you decide to accept it, will be to post any dish you like from any one of our IHCC chefs as long as your dish contains at least three ingredients from the mystery box.  Sounds like fun, doesn't it?!  We know some of you like to plan ahead for challenges, so mystery box ingredients for the forthcoming month will be posted in the side bar along with upcoming themes.  Be watching soon to see what ingredients we will be cooking with in November.

New to IHCC?  Need help linking up?  Check out our Welcome pageIf you have any questions please leave a comment below and we will get back with you.

It's Ottolenghi's salad for me this week, which is so good, that I've made it twice already!
Mystery Box sounds great! I'm one of those who like to plan in advance! :) Just received my books a few days ago and am excited to see the themes for November and the Mystery Box!
Thanks for making IHCC such a fun club to cook along with!

I bought Mark Bittman's newest "How to Cook Everything Fast" and this Spanish-inspired pasta e fagioli was really good. ;-)

Themes should be up this week and mystery box ingredients. ;-)

Mystery box sounds like a lot of fun...looking forward to it!
This week, Madhur Jaffrey and I made delicious chicken and vegetables.

So, it looks like I ran out of time again. Dang!! But everything up here so far looks soooo good.

BTW who is a member of the cooking club - Tea Time or Time for Tea? I had it bookmarked but now I cannot find it. HELP!

TeaLady said...

Never mind I found it. On Sue's page!!

Deb in Hawaii said...

I couldn't resist making a Diana Henry salad--the combo of ingredients was fabulous! ;-)

I went back in the kitchen with Nigel because there was one more must-make recipe I had pinned!
